This seafood dish is packed with flavor and because shrimp cooks fast, this recipe is a great weeknight option. If you don't want the peanut noodles too spicy, start with only 1 teaspoon chile paste. If the sauce is too thick, thin it with a little water--it should be the consistency of unwhipped cream.
