Do you guys follow me on Instagram? If you do, YAY!! Thank you! If you don’t… hey! Whatcha doin’ man?! You’re missing all the good stuff! For example, if you don’t follow me on my Instagram you missed watching my two-day long mission to find short rice noodles, or bot gao loc. It was a true struggle finding the authentic noodles I wanted to find, but I was on a HUNT. I wasn’t stopping until I found those noodles!

Noodle Excursion to Find Bot Gao Loc Noodles

We laughed; we cried; we almost gave up; we came out victorious. I went to five different stores, but alas, we found the bot gao loc noodles. I could make these shrimp stir fry with noodles from Cambodia!

What’s in Shrimp Stir Fry with Noodles?

  • Rice noodles (or pho noodles)
  • Sesame oil
  • Soy sauce
  • Oyster sauce
  • Mung bean sprouts
  • Raw deveined, de-tailed shrimp
  • Carrot
  • Garlic

How to Make Shrimp Stir Fry with Noodles

In a separate bowl, use your hands to combine the noodles with the soy sauce and the oyster sauce.

Heat the oil and the garlic in the wok.

Add the noodles to the heated oil and stir fry until the noodles are cooked through. Remove from the wok and place in a separate bowl.

Add more sesame oil to the wok and stir fry the shrimp until cooked through.

Once cooked, add the carrots and the mung bean sprouts. Continue to stir fry about 2-3 minutes until the carrots and bean sprouts begin to soften. Add more sesame oil as necessary.

Add the noodles back into the wok and stir fry everything together for about 3 minutes, adding more sesame oil as necessary.

Enjoy!

Substitution for Noodles for this Shrimp Stir Fry with Noodles

Here’s the deal: ya’ll should NOT be going to 5 different stores just to be able to make a recipe that’s on my blog. I did that because I’m obsessed with TFF and I want everything to be authentic and, truthfully, I’m a little bit crazy. If you want to make this shrimp stir fry with noodles, make it with whatever kind of noodles you want.

A good substitute for short rice noodles (bot gao loc) are pho noodles, and I’m all for that if that’s what you want to do. I think that’s probably what I’ll do when I make these again, just because it’s easier. This recipe will still taste delicious, I can tell you that!

Finding Bot Gao Loc Noodles

If you do want to be as crazy as me, well then, hello there. We must be kindred spirits, and you MUST leave a comment so I can tell you thank you. The key to finding the Bot Gao Loc noodles is that they are in the refrigerated or freezer section of the Asian grocery store. If you’re in the dry, dehydrated noodle aisles, you’re never going to find them (I learned this the hard way, after looking at 4 stores).

Also, on my fourth stop at an Asian grocery store, I asked the cashier where he thought I could get them, and he sent me to the Thai grocery store 20 minutes down the road. This is where I ultimately found the noodles.

Thailand and Cambodia are neighbors, so it makes sense that this Thai grocery store would have different noodles than say… the Japanese or Chinese market.I actually didn’t even know that the Thai market existed near my house, so this was a great find for future reference!
