Pepper Shrimp Udon

Based on 1 ratings

“It is a very simple and quick recipe that you can customise as you wish. For example you can replace the shrimps by scallops, crab or even chicken. You can also change the ratio of salty/sweet/spicy by modifying the amounts of soy sauce, honey and pepper. And of course you can use any noodles you like. Finally you could even make this recipe gluten-free by using rice noodles or shirataki noodles and gluten-free soy sauce.”
