Best noodles for shrimp stir fry

There are actually a lot of different options for stir frying noodles. We switch it up many times, and here are some different ones to try:

Rice Noodles

Rice noodles are made with rice flour and can be somewhat transparent and chewy or soft depending on how long you cook it (as is with a lot of noodles). They are usually gluten free, so if you are looking for a gluten free noodle option, check the ingredients to confirm.

There are different types of rice noodles depending on their shape – some are thin and skinny, some are thick and flat, and some of them are made in to sheets to wrap things in.

If you are going to use rice noodles, you will need to presoak them in water before you cook with them. Other noodles usually require boiling them first, but if you do that with rice noodles they will become too mushy.

Wheat Noodles

This is your most basic noodles made with wheat, and the noodle most often used in Chinese and Taiwanese cooking. Wheat noodles can also have different shapes and sizes.

I usually already have DragonMall Wu-Mu – Dry Noodle at my house because I also use it for noodle soups (such as my Taiwanese Beef Noodle Soup!) so this is what I’m cooking with today.

Egg Noodles

Egg noodles are made with wheat flour and eggs. For the most part you can use them interchangeably with wheat noodle recipes.

There is a slight different in texture where the egg noodles are a little more firm and chewy than regular wheat noodles made without eggs.

As for flavor, egg noodles tend to have a slightly richer and savory taste, but in my opinion that depends on the brand.

Glass noodles

Glass noodles are also known as cellophane noodles. It’s a transparent clear noodle that is made from starch – this can be mung bean, potato, sweet potato, or tapioca, which makes it naturally gluten free.

They are sold as dried noodles, and has to be soaked in water and softened prior to cooking. Once softened, you can cook them in soups, stir fries, spring rolls or more! We always include it as an ingredient in our hot pot!

When you purchase them, they are usually in pack of 8 bundles (example on amazon). I use one bundle to make this dish.

Instant Noodles

If you can’t find any of the noodles I mentioned above you can use instant ramen noodles from the ramen packages, and discard the flavor packets also.
