  • 5 ounces rice noodles
  • 1/ 2 pound large shrimp, deveined and peeled
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/ 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon peanut butter
  • Cilantro, chopped for garnish
  • Peanuts, chopped for garnish
  • Lime wedges, optional


  • Step 1

    Prepare rice noodles according to package instructions, just until tender. Rinse under cold water to prevent sticking. Season shrimp with salt and pepper and set aside.

  • Step 2

    In a separate bowl, combine all sauce ingredients together.

  • Step 3

    Add the shrimp in a lightly oiled skillet on medium heat, stirring until cooked through and pink, about 1-2 minutes. Add garlic and cook until aromatic. Transfer into a bowl and set aside.

  • Step 4

    In the same preheated skillet, lightly oil the surface, crack the eggs, and scramble until cooked through. Add noodles, sauce, bean sprouts, and shrimp to the pan. Toss everything to combine.

  • Step 5

    Stir in green onions and remove from heat. Top with chopped cilantro, peanuts, and slices of lime on the side as desired. Enjoy!
