Ingredients for 5 Asian Noodle Salad servings

* Optional Substitution Note

  • 1 1/2 lb raw jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
    • SUB: chicken breast; tofu; mushrooms
  • Vinaigrette
    • 1/4 cup olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
    • 1/4 cup oyster sauce
    • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
    • 3 tablespoons Sriracha (or hot sauce of your choice)
    • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar or apple cider vinegar (OR juice from 1 lime)
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh minced garlic
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh ginger
    • 2 teaspoons coconut sugar (OPTIONAL)
  • Salad
    • 1/2 medium (~3 cups) green cabbage, chopped & shredded
    • 1/2 medium (~3 cups) red/purple cabbage, chopped & shredded
    • 1 large red bell pepper, sliced
    • 1 medium cucumber, chopped
    • 1 cup matchstick or shredded carrot
    • 8oz water chestnuts, drained
    • 8oz (227g) sugar snap peas
    • 3 green onions, finely chopped
    • 60z COOKED noodles (I used rice & corn gluten free spaghetti)
  • Garnish
    • sesame seeds and/or peanuts (BE SURE to account for the macronutrients if you use)
    • green onion
    • lime or clementine


Step 1

Set a nonstick skillet on high heat. Once hot, spray with oil then add the shrimp. Cook until the outside is seared and the shrimp is cooked through, about 6 to 8 minutes. Set aside.

Step 2

Mix together the ingredients for the vinaigrette in a bowl or jar. Season to taste with lime juice, soy, ginger or garlic.

Step 3

In a large bowl, toss together the ingredients for the salad and ensure everything is well mixed. Then add the shrimp – or your choice of protein – and mix.

Step 4

For meal time, add the vinaigrette to the salad and toss together.  Garnish and enjoy! NOTE: If doing this for meal prep, divide the salad into however many servings you prefer and store the vinaigrette separate and mix at meal time.

Step 5

And the plant-based option with mushrooms… Enjoy the spicy Asian Noodle Salad!

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget.
