The crispy golden crust on the shrimp is achieved by coating in cornstarch and browning quickly in oil. From Pampered Chef. Note: Rice noodles are delicate and translucent noodles that come in many shapes and sizes. Look for flat noodles, about 1/4 inch wide. Regular linguine or fettuccini, prepared according to package directions, can be substituted for the rice noodles, if desired.

Directions

  1. Bring water to a boil in (3-qt.) Saucepan. Remove from heat and add noodles. Let noodles soak 3-4 minutes or until softened but still slightly firm. Drain and rinse under cold water; set aside.
  2. Season shrimp with 1/8 teaspoon of the salt; dredge in cornstarch, shaking off excess. Heat oil in (10-in.) Sauté Pan over medium-high heat until hot. Add shrimp in a single layer; cook 8-10 minutes or until golden brown and crisp, turning once. Remove shrimp from pan; set aside and keep warm. Add gingerroot, carrot, bell pepper and shallots to pan. Cook and stir until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in coconut milk, chicken broth, curry paste, lime juice, 2 tablespoons of the basil and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt; bring to a simmer.
  3. Add noodles to simmering sauce mixture; cook 1 minute or just until heated through. Stir in shrimp; spoon into bowls. Garnish with remaining basil and lime wedges.
