Oh, yum! This recipe is a real gem. I only made minor changes- I started with raw shrimp, and added them with the bok choy, I also added salt with the peppers and pea pods, but just a little and I always season my veggies when they go in the pan. I chose hoisin and sesame oil instead of the cooking oil and stir fry sauce- I really think the hoisin was key to making this such a treat. I also chose to add the optional pepper flakes, which I put in at the very beginning while the oil was heating, in order to carry the flavor to everything the oil touched. This had the best qualities of a weeknight meal- fast, easy, and tasty! Thanks for posting a winner!

This was a great recipe and we really enjoyed the Asian flavors. I especially liked the ramen noodles. The mix of veggies was wonderful and the addition of shrimp is always a bonus! The only thing I would do differently is to make the sauce thicker - I might try adding corn starch to the finished sauce next time. Thank you so much for a fun and yummy recipe!

What a wonderful surprise. I was taken aback...this is not only easy to prepare but the flavor is so good... We really enjoyed it. I picked up a packet of "shrimp" Ramen noodles and decided to cut the recipe in half because there is just the two of low an behold they come in 3 oz. packages. FYI. Check the amount before preparing. I used cooking oil, (only because I didn't notice the sesame oil option). It still was delicious. This is going in my best of 2010 cookbook. Thanks for posting. :)
