Ingredients
  • 14 ounces flat rice noodles
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/3 cup fish sauce
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons Asian chili sauce (such as Sriracha)
  • 1 pound medium-large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 medium bunch asparagus, trimmed
  • 5 ounces shiitake mushrooms, trimmed
  • 1 medium carrot, shredded
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
Directions
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the noodles and cook as the label directs; drain and rinse with cold water.

  • Meanwhile, whisk the lime juice, fish sauce, brown sugar, garlic, chili sauce and 1/3 cup water in a medium bowl. Transfer 1/4 cup of the marinade to another bowl and toss with the shrimp. Toss another 1/4 cup marinade with the asparagus and mushrooms in a third bowl. Let the shrimp and vegetables marinate 10 minutes at room temperature. Toss the noodles with the remaining marinade.

  • Heat a grill or grill pan to medium-high. Grill the shrimp, asparagus and mushrooms until the shrimp is just cooked through and the asparagus is slightly tender, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Halve the mushrooms and cut the asparagus into pieces.

  • Divide the noodles among bowls and top with the shrimp, asparagus, mushrooms, carrot and cilantro.
