Shrimp Pad Thai With Soba Noodles

Shrimp Pad Thai With Soba Noodles


  1. 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  2. 1 tablespoon chili garlic sauce
  3. 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  4. 4 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  5. 1-inch ginger, roughly chopped
  6. 1/4 cup natural peanut butter
  7. 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  8. 4 teaspoons sesame oil
  9. 2 tablespoons peanut oil (or vegetable oil)
  10. 1 pound large shrimp, peeled
  11. 9 ounces soba noodles, cooked, rinsed, and drained
  12. 1/4 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
  13. 1/4 cup roasted peanuts, coarsely chopped
  14. 2 limes, quartered, for serving


  1. In a blender, combine the first eight ingredients and 1/4 cup hot water; puree until smooth.
  2. Heat a wok or large skillet on medium high. When it's hot, add 1 tablespoon of oil and swirl to coat the pan. Then add the shrimp and cook until they just turn pink, about 2 minutes. Transfer them to a plate.
  3. Add another tablespoon of oil to the wok and swirl.
  4. Return the shrimp to the pan along with the peanut sauce and cooked soba. Stir-fry for 1 minute.
  5. Top with peanuts and cilantro. Serve with lime wedges on the side.
