How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Add shrimp to vinegar mixture; toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes.

Cook noodles according to package directions, omitting salt and fat; drain. Rinse with cold water; drain.

Step 3

Heat a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add cashews, garlic, ginger, and chile to pan; stir-fry 1 minute or until garlic begins to brown. Remove cashew mixture from pan with a slotted spoon, and set aside.

Step 4

Increase heat to high. Add sweet peppers, carrot, and salt to pan; stir-fry 2 minutes. Add shrimp mixture (do not drain); stir-fry 2 minutes. Stir in noodles and peas; cook 1 minute, tossing to coat.

This was great. Light with a nice kick. I used red chili sauce instead of cembal. I also doubled the shrimp marinade. Indefinitely saved this one.

Quite Yummy

I really enjoyed this recipe. I like the suggestion of another reviewer who doubled the sauce. The sauce soaks in pretty quickly and could you use a little more. I did make this with chicken as I forgot to purchase shrimp. I will be making this again. 

Bland and Tasteless

Very disappointing. No heat, not spicy, no flavor, and a waste of ingredients. Followed the recipe with the exception of eliminating cashews (cannot have nuts in my food) and doubled the sauce/marinade.

Excellent dish. Very flavorful and just the right amount of heat. Served with a cucumber vinaigrette. Will definitely make again.

Delicious. I can't believe it took me so long to try this recipe. I doubled the sauce ingredients and am glad I did.

Excellent dish! Even leftover and reheated in the microwave, this was delicious. The prep time was a little time consuming, but it once that was done it came together very quickly. I used a Serrano pepper and subbed green onions for snow peas (just because I don't like them). Otherwise, everything was as directed. I would have liked a little more sauce, too. I can't wait to make this again!

This was superb! Made the sauce in advance and also chopped the cashews and ginger in advance so it pulled together quickly. Great dish! Husband loved
