DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl or pot, soak the noodles in hot tap water until they are just pliable enough to wrap around your fingers, about 15-20 minutes. Drain. While they soak --
  • In a small bowl, stir together sauce ingredients until sugar is dissolved.
  • In a large skillet, heat 2 Tbsp of the oil over high heat until shimmering.
  • Add noodles and sauce. Stir constantly with tongs until noodles have softened, about 30-45 seconds.
  • Push noodles to one side of the pan. Add the other 2 Tbsp oil, garlic, onion, and shrimp.
  • Cook until shrimp are just starting to turn opaque, about 30 seconds, then stir noodles and shrimp mixture together and move everything to the outside of the pan, leaving a well in the center.
  • Add the eggs to the center well, allow to cook undisturbed until starting to solidify, then break into pieces with your tongs and mix together with the noodles and shrimp.
  • Once the eggs and shrimp are fully, but just barely, cooked, turn off the heat and stir in the bean sprouts, peanuts, scallions and cilantro.
