Today’s Dude Dinner is an oldie but good one that Red always makes me for me when I don’t feel well. If your new to my blog you might not be aware of my love of all things noodles. Well…I love noodles. Take a look at the name of this blog. hehe Anyhow, I also love seafood more than I love to breath so it’s just a great recipe to combine two of my favorite things.
Red came up with this dish one day, he was cooking and asked me what I’d like for dinner. So of course I just said two of my favorite ingredients “Shrimp and noodles”. So that’s what he did. He decided to use whatever was in the fridge that day and voila! A dude dinner happened in under 30 minutes and still today it’s one of my favorite noodle dishes he makes for me. I already decided when we are like 40 and have a pub/bar that serves food this will be on the late night menu. 🙂
1/2 box of angel hair pasta 1 lb. of shrimp (fresh or frozen, cleaned and peeled)
1 red onion (diced) parmesan cheese (to taste)
duck sauce + soy sauce ( to taste) 2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 stick of butter (4 tbsp) 4 or 5 cloves of garlic (diced)
- Set your H2O to boil ( for the noodles)
Rinse and peel your shrimp while the water is boiling
Dice your onions and garlic
Add your noodles to the H2O ( 7-10 mins or per the instructions on the box)
In a seperate saute pan ( we use a wok) heat your oil and butter
Add your garlic, shrimp, onions and let saute for 5 mins. (onions should be slightly translucent, shrimp should be slightly pink)
Add soy sauce and duck sauce to the wok ( cook 2-3 more mins)
Drain your noodles and add shrimp sauce mixture to the noodles. Toss it all together and remove from heat.
Add parmesan cheese, salt and pepper to taste and throw on a garnish of fresh herbs if you have any in the house, like parsley or even basil.
You can even throw in whatever veggies you might have in the fridge to give it some crunch.
Hope you enjoyed today’s dude dinner!!! Thanks Red.
