These Shrimp Shiitake Noodles are loaded with earthy shiitake mushrooms, juicy, plump shrimp and oodles of noodles in a yummy soy sauce and butter sauce. Get your slurp on!
Cook your noodles or pasta according to package instructions. Reserve 1 1/2 cup of the pasta water before draining.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp to the skillet and lightly season with salt and pepper. Cook on both sides for about 1 to 2 minutes or until the shrimp is pink and starts to get golden brown. Transfer shrimp to a plate and set aside.
Add the butter and sesame oil to the same skillet. Once the butter has melted, add the shallots and garlic and saute for about 2 to 3 minutes, until the shallots have softened and the garlic is aromatic.
Add the shiitake mushrooms and stir so that the mushrooms get coated in the butter. Turn the heat down to medium and cook the mushrooms until they start to lightly brown. Should take about 5 minutes.
Deglaze the skillet with the white wine, stirring to get all the brown bits at the bottom. Cook for about 1 minute, the mushrooms should soak all the wine.
Stir in the dark soy sauce, regular soy sauce, brown sugar, red pepper flakes and the reserved pasta water. Continue cooking for another 3 minutes.
Add the noodles to the skillet and toss. Add the shrimp back to the skillet and garnish with the green onions.
Serve while warm.
I used Italian Bucatini pasta in this dish which is basically a thick spaghetti-like pasta with a hole running through the center. You can use any type of pasta or noodle you like with this dish, such as udon noodles, ramen noodles, spaghetti, fettuccine, etc.
Shiitake mushrooms can be replaced with regular white mushrooms or cremini mushrooms.
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
