1/2 cup peanut oil, divided
36 uncooked shrimp (jumbo size), peeled, deveined, tails left intact
6 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons hot chili paste, such as sambal oelek, divided
2 cups shiitake mushrooms, stemmed, sliced
2 cups asparagus, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces, diagonally sliced
2 cups thinly sliced red cabbage
1 cup carrots, peeled, cut into matchstick-size strips
1 cup chopped green onions, divided
12 ounces wide thai rice noodles, cooked according to package directions, drained
1/2 cup canned unsweetened coconut milk
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
3 tablespoons fish sauce, such as nam pla or nuoc nam*
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup chopped roasted peanuts
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 lime, cut into 6 wedges


Heat half of the oil in heavy large wok or deep skillet over high heat until just beginning to smoke. Add half of shrimp and garlic; saute until shrimp turns pink, about 1 minute per side. Stir in 1/3 of the hot chili paste. Transfer to large bowl. Repeat with remaining oil, shrimp, garlic, and 1/3 of the hot chili paste.

Add mushrooms, asparagus, cabbage, carrots, and half of the onions to wok. Stir fry 3 minutes. Transfer to bowl with shrimp. Add noodles to wok; stir to heat through. Return shrimp and vegetables to wok with noodles. Add coconut milk, lime juice, fish sauce, sugar, and remaining hot chili paste; stir until heated through, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Divide mixture among individual bowls. Sprinkle with peanuts, cilantro, and remaining onions. Garnish with lime wedges.

This recipe is taken from Bon Appetit word for word. It came from the RSVP section for Millie's Restaurant in Richmond, VA. This is not an original recipe. I cut out this recipe from my Bon Appetit magazine and can prove it!

Incredible recipe! Fantastic flavor to it. I was totally blown away by how good this was. Tasted like something I'd get at a really great Thai restaurant.
