Shrimp, Baby Bok Choy and Noodles

I got these fresh noodles in my local Asian store (Banh pho Tuoi ) recently I simply adore fresh wide noodles,  I added shrimp and baby bok choy and seasoned. In no time at all a wonderful one pot meal was created. Bok Choy is a nutritional powerhouse being a rich source of calcium, vitamin A and iron and vitamin C.

Love this style of cooking :-)

  • 3 small baby Bok Choys 
  • one teaspoon ginger/garlic paste 
  • about one cup of shrimp
  • about 10 leaves of fresh Thai Basil
  • 2 tablespoon of oyster sauce
  • a dash of sugar
  • one - two tablespoons of soy sauce 
  • a dash of sesame oil
  • 1/2 a thinly chopped onion

  1. heat a little canola oil in a pan add the sesame oil and ginger/garlic paste and onion and stir for a few minutes
  2. then add the bok choy with sugar and cover let it reduce down for 3 minutes
  3. add the oyster sauce and soy, shrimp and stir until cooked
  4. meanwhile cook the noodles in boiling water for about 5 minutes drain 
  5. mix with fresh Thai Basil 
  6. enjoy :-)

What are your favorite ways to cook with Thai Basil?
