Shrimp Garlic Noodles

Shrimp Garlic Noodles – the best garlic noodles you’ll ever make. Buttery, garlicky noodles served with juicy jumbo shrimp. It’s so good, just like the best Asian restaurants.


Shrimp Garlic Noodles are very popular now in many Asian restaurants here in Southern California. Everywhere I go, there is a garlic noodle dish on the menu.

I first published my Crustacean-inspired garlic noodles recipe back in 2008, which was 10 years ago. Sometimes I really think that these Asian restaurants copied my recipe, as it has happened many times in the past!

Anyway, garlic noodles recipe is one of the most popular recipes on my site. Over the years, I have simplified the recipe to a few versions. This Shrimp Garlic Noodles recipe is very easy but crazy delicious. You really have to try it.

Which Noodles to Use?

There are many kinds of fresh noodles in Asian stores or supermarkets; it can be overwhelming if you are not familiar. For the best results, you want to use fresh Taiwanese-style yellow noodles. Below is the picture of the noodles.

The noodles are coated in oil and yellowish in color. The noodles are packaged in a clear plastic bag. They are the best for garlic noodles.

Fresh Noodles vs. Dry Noodles

If you have an Asian store, definitely buy fresh noodles. If Asian stores are not accessible, you can always use spaghetti for this recipe. To be honest, I often use spaghetti when I make garlic noodles. It’s easy and convenient.
