One-Pan Soba Noodles with Shrimp

Another one-pan dish, baaaybaaaay.

Is it too soon to call you baaaybaaaay? Do you need to take me to dinner first? Oh! Make me this.

So, remember that one time we one-panned this coconut shrimp dish? And we really liked it. It took a less than one Laverne and Shirley, was so outrageously yummy you drop kicked your face, thus deeming you the Queen of the Universe.

How about we do it again? But this time, with soba noodles! And a super crazy beefy soy broth with brown sugar, sambal oelek, and lime juice. How about it?

Get this. I bought the prettiest shiitake mushrooms for this meal, and completely forgot to use them! h.a.s.h.t.a.g.a.l.l.t.h.e.b.a.b.i.e.s.

Couldn’t believe it. Totally noticed them in the fridge over the weekend, said, “Drat!,” got made fun of for saying drat, pouted a bit, then moved on with my life. They’re still in my fridge, come to think of it. I guess I should sauté them with my morning eggs. And toasted crusty bread! Oooo and scallions, and maybe some honey-flavored goat cheese. YES.

What was I saying?

Whatever decisions you have coming up in your life, this will be the one that makes the most sense.

One-Pan Soba Noodles with Shrimp


One Pot Soba Noodles with Shrimp:

What it took for 2:

* 1/2 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
* 2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
* 3 cloves garlic, minced
* 1 Tbs. finely minced ginger root
* 1 (15 oz) can beef stock
* 3 Tbs. soy sauce
* 1 Tbs. sambal oelek
* 2 Tbs. brown sugar
* 1 lime
* 2 bundles soba noodles
* 1 red bell pepper, diced
* 1 (5 oz) package sliced shiitake mushrooms
* 1/2 cup cilantro leaves
* salt and pepper to taste

Bring the oil to a medium-high and add the shrimp. Sear on both sides until you see a little color, two minutes total. Season with a little salt and pepper. Remove from pan and set aside.

Back in the pan, add a little more oil if needed, and the garlic and ginger. Sauté for 30 seconds, then add the beef stock, soy sauce, sambal oelek, brown sugar, and the juice from the lime. Stir and simmer a minute or two, then add the soba noodles, red bell pepper and mushrooms. Let the noodles soften, then add the cilantro and shrimp back to the pan.

Toss to coat everything. The sauce will thicken, so taste it and add a little water if needed. Or lime juice! And a little salt if needed.

    I L.O.V.E. soba noodles but have always cooked them separately and then added them to whatever sauce I made. I have to try this!

    I actually made the Thai noodle coconut shrimp bowl last night. It was delicious and so easy. Can't wait to try this one. But where do we get sambal olek? Is there a substitution, just in case?

    I may not skinny dip in this, but I'll definitely take a fork to the entire pan! No need to dish it out as it's all for me!! I love soba noodles and all the flavors that are in this dish :)

    How many ounces of soba noodles, Bev? Packages I've bought are sized differently. Love this idea, which can be adapted for chicken, too.

      I totally suck because I don't know! I buy big bags of soba noodles, then put them in a big glass jar, so I'm not even sure on the ounces. But I leave them bundled because usually, one bundle works per person. I'm so sorry I don't have actual measurements!

    If this is the only good decision that I'll be making, then make it a double!
  16. Katie August 15, 2014 at 1:37 am #
    I try to make all my meals one pan meals (out of sheer laziness) so I'll have to add this one to the rotation!
  17. Sarah @ People,Places&Plates August 15, 2014 at 2:28 pm #
    Really need to start with more of these 1 pan meals...looks delicious!

    This is so awesome! I've been wanting to make my own food with soba noodles and this also has shrimp. It's perfect. Thank you for sharing!

    this was so good! i wouldn't put so much beef stock next time tho. i would dilute it with water, as it was really salty. other than that, great flavour tho!

    This is an amazing dish...however all of our soba noodles stuck together and created a big gross mess. We ended up throwing the entire dish out. Soba noodles tend to be super testy - they need a lot of water to move around in so as not to stick to each other and they need to be drained and rinsed in cold water to get them to stop cooking (which is what I think they kept doing in the pan). This dish would be amazing if we had cooked the noodles on the side then added in.

      Oh no! I'm so sorry! That bums me out. But thanks for letting me know!
