Peppered Shrimp with Noodles Ingredients

  • 1 kilo Shrimp large, deveined
  • 1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns crushed and divided
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt divided
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 6 cloves Garlic minced
  • lemon wedges to serve
  • 450 Grams miki noodles fresh, wide
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil plus extra to toss
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Rice Vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter preferably unsweetened
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ginger chicken thigh filletsfinely grated
  • 2 teaspoons Chili-Garlic Paste or to taste
  • 1 Small Cucumber sliced thinly
  • peanuts fried, crushed


  • Make the peppered shrimp: Pat shrimp dry. Place shrimp, half the crushed peppercorns, and half of the salt in a bowl. Toss to coat shrimp.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a wok or a large pan over medium-high heat. Add garlic, and the rest of the peppercorns and salt; stir-fry for 1 minute.
  • Add shrimp and stir-fry until opaque, about 3 to 5 minutes. Do not overcook.
  • Place shrimp and lemon wedges on a serving plate. Set aside.
  • Make the sesame noodles: Boil noodles in a large pot of water for about 5 minutes (they should still be a bit chewy). Drain, rinse with cold water, then drain again. Toss noodles with some sesame oil to keep them from sticking to each other.
  • Whisk together 2 tablespoons sesame oil, soy sauce, vinegar, peanut butter, sugar, ginger, garlic, and chili-garlic paste in a bowl. Taste then adjust seasoning. It should be a balance of sweet, spicy, and salty, with a bit of zing from the ginger.
  • Pour sauce over noodles and toss. Place noodles and cucumber slices on the plate alongside the shrimp. Top noodles with peanuts and cilantro, if desired.
