Shrimp is sauteed with mushrooms and veg and topped with cooked Udon noodles. Thai Basil is then added and a delicious sticky sauce that will coat the noodles. It’s then topped with fried shallots.

If you’re going to eat carbs, it may as well be the delicious stick to your ribs kinda noodles such as these luscious Udon Noodles. One of my favorite dishes at Spring Rolls is their Beef Udon. Every time I visited their restaurant, I could only order the Beef Udon for the fear of being disappointed by another choice.

Sadly, the Spring Rolls establishment by my work closed down and moved and I was left craving this. After I mastered the Beef Udon, the next step was Shrimp! This recipe is a bit different and it uses Shrimp & Thai Basil – it’s quick, it’s easy and it’s delicious!
