A quick and easy Bang Bang Shrimp recipe combined with microwavable noodles and stir-fry veggies.
Place the frozen shrimp in a strainer under cool running water for 2-3 minutes.
While the shrimp is thawing, add the lime juice, minced garlic, paprika, and black pepper to a Ziploc bag. Use a knife to remove the tails from the shrimp. Add the shrimp to the Ziploc bag and shake. Place in the refrigerator. (The longer you let the shrimp marinate, the more flavor they'll absorb. You can, however, jump right in and make this all at once.)
Break a block of Ramen noodles in half and add to a bowl. Cover the noodles with water and microwave for 1 minute.
Drain nearly all the water from the noodles before adding the frozen veggie mix to the bowl. Stir well and microwave for an additional 2 minutes.
Drain all the water from the bowl before adding the shrimp mixture. Stir well and microwave for 30-60 seconds or until the shrimp is warm throughout. DON'T overcook the shrimp as it will get rubbery fast.
Top with a bit of crushed red pepper and fresh parsley (optional) and enjoy!
