Last week my husband sent me a recipe and asked if we could make it. Let’s see… um, Yes!
Here is the recipe for gluten-free Lime Shrimp Dragon noodles from Budget Bytes.
Total time: 30 minutes
Serves 2-4 people
This recipe can be doubled!
1/2 lb frozen peeled, deveined shrimp* – Can be thawed or fresh
1 square of gluten free Lotus Ramen noodles per person
1/2 Tbsp-2Tbsp sriracha, to taste
2 Tbsp San-J gluten free Tamari Soy sauce, black label preferred
2 Tbsp brown sugar
2-3 limes (1-2 limes for juice, 1 lime for side) – Lemons will not work with this recipe, trust me!
2 cloves of garlic, diced, more to taste
2 green onions, washed and chopped
Handful of cilantro, washed and torn
*Size of shrimp will determine how many this meal serves. We used a whole bag of 31 size shrimp, so they were a little on the big side. We doubled the sauce to compensate. If you use the smaller 51/70 size, this meal may feed 4 without a problem.
If the shrimp is frozen, place them in a colander and rinse with cool water until thawed. Drain and set aside.
In a small bowl whisk together sriracha, soy sauce, brown sugar and 1Tbsp lime juice. Set aside.
Fill a medium-large sauce pot with water and bring to boil. Once boiling turn the heat to low and add noodles. After a minute, use chop sticks or a fork to stir the noodles so they separate. The noodles will be done 3 minutes and should look and feel like soba noodles. Drain in a colander.
Over medium-high heat, sauté butter and garlic in a high-sided large pan, or just a really big pan. Add the shrimp and continue to sauté until the shrimp turns pink and opaque (3-5 minutes). Remove pan from heat.
Add the noodles, green onions, and cilantro and toss. Pour sauce over the noodles and shrimp, toss everything together until it is evenly coated. For picky eaters, place the onions and cilantro on the side. Use the remaining lime for additional flavor.
Serve in your favorite bowls and enjoy! Can be used as a main dish or as a side dish.
