Spicy Shrimp Stir Fry With Noodles

This spicy shrimp stir-fry with noodles recipe has a lovely kick. It is one of the easiest meals I know and packed with delicious flavours!

I make this shrimp stir fry with noodles when I need to make a quick and easy meal that everyone loves!


Indonesian Food

Have you ever tried spicy Indonesian noodles? I used to frequent a fast food place in Ridderkerk in the Netherlands, Dapur Ibu, and buy a takeaway lunch at least twice a week.

You can make your selection from the counter there and they heat it up on the spot. I would always choose the same spicy noodles with some spicy meat.

It was so good – it was my special treat when I needed one.

I am still trying to discover the recipe, through trial and error, but I am not there yet. I am getting closer though. This recipe has a little kick and is getting close. I am still working on it.

The great thing about this one is that we can generally use stuff we have in the cupboard/fridge. It does not have to be these vegetables, it can be spring onions, carrots, whatever you need to get rid of.

All the stuff below I have anyway in the house, as most of it keeps for ages. The recipe below just shows what I was needing to use up when I made this meal.

I always keep some egg noodles in the pantry, and some prawns in the freezer, just for that day that you do not want to go and shop for groceries.

The recipe may seem daunting at first but really it is pretty simple and quick to make and is worth the effort.

Try your own ingredients and let me know how to improve it!

Prep Time 2 minutes
Cook Time 13 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes


  • Extra fine green beans 100 g
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 flat mushroom, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp. premium dark soy sauce
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ginger puree
  • 1 tsp sriracha sauce (YES!)
  • Frozen prawns 200g
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • Medium egg noodles 180g (2 bundles)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tbsp vegetable oil


  1. Top and tail the beans and put them in a pan of salted boiling water for about 5 minutes.
  2. In the meantime prepare the remaining ingredients – chop the garlic, onion, mushrooms and any other vegetables you may be using. Place the frozen prawns in a bowl of warm water to defrost them.
  3. Remove the beans from water with a sieve. Then add the noodles to the water and boil for 3 minutes. During boiling keep moving the noodles around in the pan to separate them. After 3 minutes remove from water into a sieve and cool under hot water.
  4. At the same time you can heat the olive oil in a wok, throw in the garlic, sieve the prawns and fry them for about 3 minutes. Then remove them to a plate when finished.
  5. In the same wok add a tbsp. of vegetable oil, and when shimmering, you can add the cooled noodles. Fry on one side for about 2 minutes without stirring. Then turn over and cook the other side for another 2 minutes. Then remove from the wok to a plate.
  6. While you are frying the noodles you can mix the soy sauce, premium soy sauce, sugar, sriracha, sesame oil and ginger puree in a small cup.
  7. Then use the same wok to fry the onion and mushroom, and any other vegetables you may have, in the rest of the vegetable oil.
  8. Finally add the noodles and the soy sauce mix and stir until everything is well covered in the delicious sauce. And then to finish off add the prawns, green beans and mix.


This meal can use a variety of ingredients to suit your taste, and you can adjust the spiciness to suit.
