Honey lime shrimp and noodles. So simple, so easy and absolutely delicious!
Towards the end of the week we start running out of groceries around here. For the past few months J and I haven’t even been home for the weekend, so we haven’t needed to buy too many groceries. This past weekend we stayed in – all day Saturday, which means we had to cook for breakfast, lunch and dinner. That’s a lot of cooking in my household in only one day.
By dinnertime my cabinets were looking a bit sparse and I struggled to come up with something to cook. I had some frozen cooked shrimp and some Roman noodles… we were really running dry!
I thought about it, looked up a few recipes and then decided to create a combination of about 5 recipes. It couldn’t have turned out better! It was perfect for just the two of us!
Here’s what you need:
18-20 medium size shrimp
¼ c. canola oil
⅛ c. light soy sauce
⅛ c. honey
juice of 2 limes
1 ½ teaspoon garlic powder
1 pack Roman noodles
I used the already cooked shrimp because that’s what I had on hand.
Marinade your shrimp in the oil, soy sauce, garlic powder, honey and lime juice above for about 30 minutes in the fridge. Cook the Roman noodles per the directions, except do not add the flavor packet. Drain the water from the noodles and set aside. Heat shrimp over medium heat in a skillet until cooked through. Reserve about ¼ cup of the marinade. Add the shrimp and the reserved marinade to the noodles.
