Sesame Shrimp and Noodles

Source: Everyday Food, October 2005


  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 ounces thin spaghetti
  • 2 tablespoons orange marmalade
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon red-wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 6 ounces medium shrimp
  • 1 small yellow bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch strips
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced


  1. In a medium pot of boiling salted water, cook spaghetti until al dente, according to package instructions. Drain; return to pot.

  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together marmalade, soy sauce, oil, vinegar, and ginger. Season with salt and pepper. Add shrimp, bell pepper, and scallions; toss to combine. Transfer to a rimmed (or toaster-oven) baking sheet, and spread in a single layer.

    This was a super easy and fabulous meal - my Italian husband loved it! I added scallops also and was awesome! Will definitely make this again.

    This was delicious. I used 4oz of large shrimp and sobo noodles and the whole thing only comes to about 500 calories

    I made this for my husband one night. He absolutely loved it. This is an easy meal that is a little different from the usual meals we eat.

    I used fresh chopped ginger and udon noodles instead, but this is a quick and easy recipe and I will definitely make it again.
