Shrimp and Cucumber Sesame Noodles

These simple asian noodles are flavored with a sesame soy sriracha sauce, and paired with refreshing cucumber and flavorful shrimp. Dinner is ready in less than 20 minutes!


Every once in a while I crave these flavors and must have them, nothing else will suffice.  It’s different things for different people…some must have chocolate, some must have a big juicy steak with potatoes, but for me, I crave Asian flavors.  Maybe it’s because when I was growing in my momma’s belly that’s what she ate.

There are two reasons I love this dish: 1. It’s very refreshing and light, and 2.  The dish comes together in 10-15 minutes, which I think is pretty awesome.  All you have to do is boil the noodles, make the dressing while you’re waiting, thaw out some frozen shrimp and julienne a cucumber.
