"My mom found this recipe years ago, and it is still of the most often made (or at least craved) meals. Packed with flavor, this dish is sure to excite your taste buds!"
Serving Size: 1 (110 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"This was phenomenal! I used 2 lbs scallops (quartered) and 2 packages of Udan Asian noodles (We like lots of left-overs). I also doubled the sauce and added 1 extra teaspoon of the chili sauce. My husband said, "Honey that was really delicious. Thank you so much." So this is definitely a keeper! :o) BTW, I think this would be good with beef strips as well."
"I really liked this, and it was very simple to make. I made a few revisions based on what I had in the kitchen. I left out the fresh mint and used dried cilantro. I used 1/2 bag of Chinese noodles, so I'm guessing they are different than the Asian ones listed. Also, while making the sauce I realized I had no orange zest or OJ to substitute -- so I substituted triple sec that I had leftover from a sangria recipe. It actually worked out well! This is a great recipe to make if you have things to do when you get home from work. Whip up the sauce in 5 mins., let it sit in the fridge while you shower and do other things, and then it cooks in 10 minutes. Tasty and fast, best of both worlds. Thanks, Nicole!"
"Very yummy and quicker than takeaway. I used about a half pound of noodles. It was the perfect amount. Didn't have a fresh orange to zest, so I used 1/4 c of OJ. Also added some broccoli, which seemed to go quite well."
"Tons of flavor!!! I used lime zest instead of orange and red pepper flake instead of chili paste because that's what I had. I thickened the sauce with a little corn starch. I also added fresh garlic, zucchini, onion and tomato served over rice with some sliced avocado and more cilantro over the top. Fresh, light and fantastic!!!"
"We enjoyed the dish. We did think it needed a bit more heat. We liked the flavor but thought it lacked some of the spicy taste we were looking for. I would double the chili paste and maybe add some red pepper flakes to get the added heat. Overall a really good dish. I used soba noodles instead of the udan. Thanks for posting. :)"
"This was incredible! So many flavors and just the right bite with the chili paste. Definitely could use more seafood to the amount of noodles. That is the only change I will make to this next time. There will be many repeats on this one. Delish!"
"Wow! This was great! Very tasty and easy to make!"
"I doubled the sauce since I had almost 2lbs of sea scallops to use (didn't use shrimp). Although I doubled the sauce for the scallops, I didn't double the Udan noodles. There was plenty of noodles just using 2 packages. This was so easy to make. Definitely a keeper!"
"This was a tasty and easy dinner. I also used only half of the noodles, and added a little more soy sauce ( I love salt). I only let the sauce sit for about 45 min, but I thought it was the perfect amount of spice. Very good!"
"The sauce was really tasty and a great match for the seafood! I added a little more soy sauce to the final product, but that may have more to do with the high noodle to seafood ratio. I would recommend using a half pound of linguini (maybe different with udon), because we've got just about a half pound of slightly saucy, no seafood noodles left in the fridge. The sauce would probably be more flavorful with less pasta to cover. Delicious nonetheless, and we will definitely be making this again!"
"WOW!! This recipe has very complex flavors. I made the sauce the night before, as suggested. It was a little too spicy for me, so next time I will use less chili paste. I also used only shrimp because that was all I had on hand. It doesn't take 10 minutes to cook the shrimp. All in all, a wonderful dish."
"I made this without scallops and doubled the shrimp and marinade.I made the marinade three days in advance and it was very flavorful.I sauteed the shrimp in a few teaspoons of oil and then added the sauce, thickened slightly with cornstarch,and served over noodles. I didn't have the mint either. I thought it had a wonderful complex flavor, sweet, spicy and orangey flavor.I think a lot of people would enjoy this dish. Roxygirl in Colo."
"I've rated it 4 stars based on my modification. It's an easy recipe to cook but the recipe as it stands was a little bit sweet for our tastebuds. The second time I cooked it I halved the honey and increased the chilli, and it was then much more to the family's taste. I served it on rice rather than with noodles but will try with noodles in the future. The second time I made it with chicken rather than the seafood. I'll use this recipe again and again as it is flexible, easy and tasty. A great combination for any recipe in my house."
"Spoon on that chili paste if you like it hot because this dish is the most flavorful spicy dish I have ever devoured the abundance of flavor is only like one other thing I have eaten and it was from this same chef I kid you not!"
