Let’s Talk Shrimp & Noodles
For this recipe, rice noodles are recommended. Although, this could be made with ramen noodles too! The rice noodles will naturally help make the dish feel a bit lighter, and the ramen noodles will add extra comfort. You really can’t go wrong with either!
When it comes to shrimp, I typically buy mine frozen just because of what I have access to here in NE. Fresh shrimp can get a bit pricey! But, if you find a good deal, go for it! When I can, I try to get the wild caught, tail-on shrimp. I’ve had the best luck finding this at Costco! Larger shrimp look more visually appealing, but small shrimp can be used as well.
Homemade Teriyaki Sauce
What is so great about creating this sauce at home, is that it’s an easy combination of pantry ingredients that deliver a punch of flavor! Another thing is that you get to control what goes into the sauce. I do highly recommend using low-sodium soy sauce as salt can always be added, but not taken away.
How To Serve
These Better than Take-Out Shrimp & Noodles not only make the perfect weeknight/weekend meal, but they are also made in just 2 pans! That’s right, minimal dishes for you to have to clean afterwards. The rice noodles cook quickly in a pot of boiling water, while the shrimp and veggies sauté in a homemade sauce. Toss everything together in one pan and serve it up family-style, or go the extra mile and use takeout boxes and chop sticks. How fun would that be?! Stay in your PJ’s, put on a good movie and cozy up with your own, homemade takeout Teriyaki Shrimp & Noodles.

Found the flavor to be very lacking. We ended up adding honey and more teriyaki.
