Vietnamese Inspired Shrimp and Noodles


You can make this in less than half an hour. Seriously. Not even half.


I made this last night, but I’ll post it now! Recipe after the jump!



You’ll need:


  • A small bag of medium sized shrimp (40?) ish.
  • 2-3 tbsp each of fresh parsley, green onion and cilantro
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 3 ish tbsp of thinly sliced onion (just for flavour)
  • Vietnamese dipping sauce
  • rice vermicelli



Dice fresh parsley, green onion and cilantro. Juice lime, and add Vietnamese dipping sauce. Set aside.

This stuff.

Put a pot of water onto boil and cook your rice vermicelli as per the instructions on the packet. If you time it right you can serve it at the same time as the shrimp, otherwise if you cook it earlier, rinse the noodles under cold water to stop the cooking process.

These are medium-ish sized shrimp. Begin sauteing with some thinly sliced onion and 1 clove of garlic, just until shrimp is cooked and onion has softened. Set aside.


Toss shrimp in your lime/herb mixture.

Serve with rice noodles, a garnish of cucumber and a little bit more of the dipping sauce. Yum!
