This is a good weeknight recipe I can rely on. For the most part it uses common ingredients and the outcome is tasty. You will have garlic breath after your meal, but I promise it will be worth it. I stumbled upon the original version of this recipe a few years ago by Erwan Heussaff on the Tastemade YouTube Channel. I have cooked the original version of the recipe since discovering it. Recently however, with my family members deciding to pursue a low carb diet, I had to find ways to cook the stuff I loved and still support my family’s food journey. I have turned Erwan’s recipe into a Keto version and I hope you enjoy this bowl of noodles as much as I do.
- 8 Garlic Cloves, minced (1.40oz/40g)
- 2 8 Oz Bags of Angel Hair Shirataki Noodles (yields 14oz/398.5g rinsed and drained noodles)
- ~3 Tbsps Canola Oil (1.6oz/45g)
- ~6 Oz of Shrimp, peeled, cleaned and deveined (6oz/165g)
- 2 Tsp Erythritol (0.35oz/10g)
- Red Pepper Flakes to taste
- White Pepper to taste
- 2 Tbsp Sake (1oz/28g)
- 3 Tbsp Soy Sauce (1.73oz/49g)
- A Generous Pinch of Xanthan Gum (~1/4 tsp)
- Handful of bean sprouts (optional, add per your preference)
- Salt to taste
- 2 tbsp butter (1oz/28g)
- Generous dash of sesame oil (1 recommend at least 2 teaspoons, adjust to taste)
- Generous amount of spring onions for garnish, chopped (I recommend about 2 to 3 green onions, adjust to taste)
- 1 Tbsp Red Wine Vinegar (0.5oz/14g)
- Sesame Seeds for garnish
- Start by rinsing the noodle is cold water and drain in colander. Set aside until needed.
- In a pan, heat up some canola oil on medium heat, fry garlic for 2 minutes.
- Wash and dry shrimp with a paper towel and add in the shrimp and sear for 2 minutes on each side.
- Add the erythritol, red pepper flakes, white pepper, rice wine, salt, and soy sauce to the pan, stir fry briskly.
- Add bean sprouts and saute for 30 seconds.
- Add xanthan gum and mix into the sauce and reduce to a low heat setting.
- Quickly added noodles, sesame oil, butter, red wine vinegar, and scallions
- Mix and taste, adjust the salt to taste.
- Turn of heat sprinkle sesame seeds and close lid and let sit for 2 mins. This will allows the noodles to heat up a little and soak up the flavors.
When serving, if you notice that the noodles are not hot enough, heat it up in the microwave before serving. Remember not to heat up the the Shirataki noodles for long periods of time as it will get mushy. Also, for this dish use regular egg noodles and sugar instead of Shirataki noodles and erythritol if you are not following the Keto diet these are super delicious options as well.
