It’s a cross between a soup and a noodle dish, but definitely needs a bowl. 

It’s been FOREVER since I’ve made shrimp at home for the kids. Today I decided to make them some. 

Serves: 4

Time: 30min

  • 1 pound of shrimp (I used 71/90), deveined and tails removed 
  • 1 Tbls chopped garlic
  • 2 Lrg green onions sliced (4 if regular size)
  • 2 Lrg Serrano Chilies, chopped (seeds included)
  • 1 Tbls Cilantro, chopped 
  • Dash of lime
  • Brown sugar (I used a palm size amount)
  • 1 Tbls butter
  • Rice noodles


  • Boil enough water to cover noodles and soak them for 20 minutes. 
  • Sauté the garlic and shrimp
  • Add can of coconut milk, brown sugar, green onions, chilies and cilantro
  • Bring back to a boil and stir 1 minute
  • Place noodles in bowls and ladle shrimp and sauce over noodles 
  • Serve

This could make a wonderful soup with the shrimp and some crab added. Your choice.
