Curried Noodles with Shrimp and Sliced Mushrooms
One of my birthday presents to John was a cook book full of curries, which he loves to cook with.
This was the first recipe we decided to try.
1 tbsp vegetable or peanut oil
3 shallots, chopped
1 fresh red chili, seeded and chopped
2 tbsp Red Curry paste
1 lemon grass stalk
8 oz cooked and shelled shrimp
1 pkg fresh sliced mushrooms
2 tbsp Thai fish sauce
2 tbsp Tamari soy sauce
8 oz fresh egg noodles, or linguine
chopped cilantro for garnish
Heat the oil in a large skillet or wok. Add the shallots and chili and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes. Add the Thai Red curry paste and lemon grass and stir-fry for an additional 2-3 minutes.
Add the shrimp, mushrooms. fish sauce, and Tamari and stir to mix well.
Meanwhile, cook the noodles in boiling water for 3-4 minutes, drain, and transfer to warm plates. Top with stir-fry mixture. Sprinkle cilantro garnish and serve immediately.
