Sherry's Spicy Shrimp Noodle Bowl

Sherry Blizzard


This is a hearty rich, spicy soup, perfect for a cold winter's evening. This recipe came about by accident. My mom gave me a recipe for a spicy shrimp noodle bowl, but when I started making it, I realized I had the wrong recipe. I combined both her recipe and another calling for bell peppers and ginger and this wonderfully rich shrimp broth made from the shells was born. A true marriage of flavors was created between the shrimp, the chicken broth, the cabbage, rice sticks, peppers and especially the chili garlic paste with a splash of sriracha sauce. I hope you'll give this a whirl.

How to Make Sherry's Spicy Shrimp Noodle Bowl


  1. Peel the shrimp, putting the shrimp casings and tails in a large saucepan. Set the cleaned, deveined shrimp aside to add later.
  2. To the casings add 2 cups chicken broth, clam juice, water and ginger.
  3. Bring to a boil, lower the temperature and just simmer for 10 minutes. Strain the broth through a fine sieve. You now have a very rich broth.
  4. To a large soup pot heat the olive oil and lightly sauté the peppers, onion and garlic.
  5. Add the rich shrimp broth, the other 2 cups of chicken broth, and everything else EXCEPT the shrimp, rice noodles, cilantro and lime slices.
  6. Simmer for 5 minutes. Add the shrimp and broken up rice sticks/noodles (my mom prefers to use 2 packages of Ramen Noodles-broken up).
  7. **NOTE: If using raw shrimp, cook just until it turns pink and noodles are soft. If using cooked shrimp, just heat through a few minutes.
  8. Garnish bowls of soup with chopped cilantro and lime wedges.
