Drunken Chili-Lime-Sherry Shrimp with Garlic, Scallions, Sweet Peppers and Ramen Noodles Recipe
  • 6-10 large shrimp (50-60 per pound, defrosted, cleaned peeled and deveined)
  • 1/8 cup soy sauce + 1 good splash soy sauce
  • Approximately 1/2 cup Sherry (or enough to cover shrimp)
  • 1 tbsp. chili garlic paste (plus additional for garnish, if desired.)
  • 1/4 cup mixed bell peppers, chopped
  • 3 green onions, cut thin on the diagonal
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp. vegetable or peanut oil
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 good handful cilantro, rough chopped.
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Place shrimp in a bowl large enough to accommodate them comfortably. Add chili garlic paste and toss lightly. Add soy sauce and enough sherry to cover. Stir gently, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes to two hours.
  2. Remove shrimp from marinade using a slotted spoon and place in a strainer or colander to drain. Reserve marinade.
  3. Boil noodles in slightly salted water for 2 1/2 minutes. (For somen noodles, boil for approximately 5 minutes). Strain noodles and allow to cool slightly.
  4. Gather all remaining ingredients and have ready in cups or bowls. Heat stir fry pan, wok or heavy bottomed skillet over high heat for at least 3 minutes, or until wisps of smoke can be seen. (If using nonstick, heat with 2 tbsp. oil in pan!) Add oil and swirl with a heat proof spatula or wooden spoon.
  5. Toss in peppers and cook, stirring constantly, for about 30 seconds. Add garlic and scallions. Stir quickly for about 10 seconds. Add shrimp and toss until just pink and beginning to curl. Add noodles and toss together. Add approximately 2 ladles-full of marinade and lime juice. Toss once and remove from heat.
  6. Place entire mixture in a bowl or on serving dish immediately. Sprinkle with cilantro and garnish with a bit of chili garlic paste. Add a dash of soy if desired.
  7. Serve hot and enjoy!
