Stir fried noodles with spicy shrimps

I always love to stir fry during the midweek. Why you ask me? Well the dishes are easy to prep; it can be very healthy and extremely delicious.

The secret to a stir frying is to prep your ingredients before you start cooking. Chop the veggies and keep them separate in plastic boxes. When all is ready warm your pan to high heat and you are ready to go.

This is my own version of an Asian style noodle dish, its fresh, healthy, sweet and spicy. I use fresh shrimps from our local fish market. They taste way better then deep frozen and I like to support our local businesses. Enjoy!
