    Leslulu's Note:

    I found this recipe on FoodNetwork by Danny Boome, whom hosts their new show "Rescue Chef." Perfect balance of flavors. We have this at least once a week. It's good even without the shrimp. I double the sauce because our family likes it saucier. I also have all ingredients ready before I begin cooking.

    1. 1
      Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a wok or a large frying pan.
    2. 2
      Add the garlic and ginger and saute until lightly golden.
    3. 3
      Add the shrimp and cook for 1 to 2 minutes until pink, tossing from time to time. Remove and set aside in a bowl.
    4. 4
      Heat 1/2 tablespoon of oil in the same wok or pan and add the egg. Stir to scramble the egg into small pieces, remove and set aside with the shrimp.
    5. 5
      Heat the remaining oil in the pan and add the soy sauce, fish sauce, rice wine, red pepper flakes, and brown sugar. (I put all these ingredients together in a bowl before I begin cooking). Stir briefly, add the drained noodles and cook for 5 minutes.
    6. 6
      Add the bean sprouts, chopped scallions and cilantro. Mix well and continue to cook until the noodles are heated through.
    7. 7
      Add the shrimp and egg back into the wok and toss with lime zest and lime juice. Season, if necessary with a little more soy sauce or fish sauce.
    8. 8
      Serve on white rice or we just eat them without the rice.

      Excellent dish!! I doubled the recipe and made 4 servings of the sauce as a result. More sauce is needed otherwise it is dry. The amount was perfect for a doubled recipe. This dish is full of flavor! I think next time I make it, I will cut down on the lime zest and juice. It overpowered the rest of the flavors, but adds a nice fresh taste. Thanks for sharing!
