Creamy, curried noodly goodness that comes together FAST!



For the Sauce:

  • 2 Tablespoons Madras Curry Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 can coconut milk, unsweetened
  • ¼ cup fish sauce

For the Noodles:

  • 1/2 bag rice vermicelli, Buddha or Hsin Tung Yang brands preferred (about 7 oz)
  • 1 Tablespoon neutral oil
  • 2 large cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon peeled and grated ginger
  • 2 links of cured Chinese sausage, sliced into thin rounds
  • 1 red bell pepper, cored and sliced thin
  • 1 medium onion, trimmed and sliced thin lengthwise
  • ¾ pound large shrimp, 21-25 size
  • 1 large handful young spinach leaves, about 2 oz.
  • Cilantro for garnish (optional)


  1. Open the bag of rice vermicelli and take out half. Reserve the rest for another meal. Place the dry noodles into a bowl and cover with warm water. Let the noodles soak for approximately 15 mins. and then drain. 
  2. Meanwhile, put all sauce ingredients into a bowl and whisk until sugar is dissolved. Set aside.
  3. Heat a large 12” skillet over med-high heat. Add the oil and the Chinese Sausage. Cook the Chinese sausage until lightly browned, about 3-4 mins. 
  4. Add the ginger and garlic. Let the ginger and garlic cook for 10-20 seconds until fragrant, but do not burn. 
  5. Add the bell peppers and onion and cook for 2-3mins until the vegetables are slightly wilted. 
  6. Add the noodles and the sauce. Mix the ingredients gently in the pan and cook for approximately 3-4 minutes. 
  7. Add the shrimp and continue cooking until the shrimp are just cooked through and the sauce is slightly reduced and thickened, about 2-3 mins.
  8. Just before taking the pan off of the heat, add the spinach and toss with the noodle mixture. The residual heat is enough to cook the spinach.
  9. Mound the noodles onto a plate making sure that the shrimp and colorful vegetables are visible. Garnish with cilantro and serve.
