Main Ingredients

  • 8 ounces rice noodles,
  • 3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar,
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon fish sauce, divided,
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar,
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper,
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil,
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped,
  • ¾ pound shrimp, peeled and deveined,
  • ½ cup water,
  • 3 eggs,
  • 1 cup bean sprouts,
  • 1 cup sliced scallions, divided,
  • ⅓ cup chopped roasted unsalted peanuts, plus more for garnish,
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges,
  • Fresh cilantro (optional),

Cooking Instructions

Step 1

Soak noodles in water for 30 minutes or according to package directions. Drain; set aside.

Step 2

In a small bowl, stir together brown sugar, 2 tablespoons fish sauce, vinegar and cayenne; set aside.

Step 3

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic; cook for 30 seconds. Stir in shrimp; cook 2 minutes, flipping once. Move garlic and shrimp to side of pan closest to handle. Tilt skillet so that empty side is closest to burner; carefully add the noodles and water. Stir noodles for 3 to 4 minutes, until most of the water is absorbed, keeping skillet tilted and shrimp untouched.

Step 4

Return entire pan to burner. Pour in the brown sugar mixture and stir, combining shrimp and noodles. Make a well in the center. Add 1 egg; when white starts to set (it takes about 1 minute), break yolk with a rubber spatula, scramble and mix into shrimp-noodle mixture. Repeat with remaining 2 eggs, making a well each time. Stir in bean sprouts, 3/4 cup scallions and peanuts.

Step 5

Serve immediately. Garnish with remaining 1/4 cup scallions, a squeeze of lime and, if using, chopped peanuts and fresh cilantro.
