The sauce you make for the noodle does have a little kick from the Sriracha but it is not over powering. If you need to take it down a notch, you could put in half as much or add a little more lime juice or rice vinegar to cut the spice. But really if you eat the meal as a whole – eat a shrimp with a bite of noodles – it balances out very nicely.

Hoisin Noodles with Tempura Shrimp

Yes – I know it’s not real Tempura!

Now before the purists come after me – I know this is not a traditional tempura recipes. This is what I like to call “tempura-esque” – as it just gives you the same light flavor of it without a full on batter and deep fry. It keeps it simple so you can get it cooked in under 30 minutes. I also like to add the garlic and ginger to the flour so that you still get a little flavor. I will say that you do have to use raw shrimp for this. If you use precooked – it will be super rubbery once you fry it up. And if you have it frozen, make sure to take it out to the fridge the night before and then rinse and dry it off before putting it in the flour. If not, it will get sort of gummy and not crisp up.

Shrimp is a great protein to add to your regular rotation. It has a very mild “fishy” or “seafood” flavor – so it’s a good place to start with picky eaters. And it can really break up the monotony of beef, chicken, pork all the time. For more shrimp ideas – check out my Shrimp Recipes!

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
