My husband and I were craving some great Chinese food but with all of this yucky weather we didn’t feel like having a night out. The solution? Create some great Chinese food at home of course with these amazing Chengdu style noodles with succulent coconut lime shrimp! The Chengdu part of this dish’s name is because of the wonderful part of China it comes from. Chengdu is the capital of the Sichuan province and it is home to some of the best cuisine in all of China! I learned about this recipe for Chengdu style noodles and where it came from when we studied Asian cooking in culinary school, and I absolutely fell in love with everything about it. I played with it quite a bit to suit what I had on hand in my pantry and fridge. All I did was run out quickly to get the shrimp!
Once the spaghetti was cooked, I tossed it with the dressing, sesame oil, Sriracha and the liquid from cooking the shrimp. Then I just piled the shrimp on top and garnished it all with bean sprouts and scallions. It looked so pretty! We had a fantastic take out style dinner right at home and I was one happy woman. I served it with my Chinese scallion bread and it was perfection. Enjoy!
