Shrimp “Pho-like”

I made shrimp pho (pronounced fuh) for the first time and it was YUMMY, thanks to a few (yes, a few) recipes I found on Pinterest!  I had a couple of friends ask me to share the recipe, so I decided to share it on the blog.

Let’s get started…

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb large shrimp, uncooked
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 cup button mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon jalapeno
  • 2 tablespoons green onion
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice, fresh
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 4 oz. rice noodles
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce

I know it seems like a lot, but I had most of these ingredients already, hence the reason I combined a few recipes! All I needed was the shrimp and produce. And let’s be honest, the only ingredients I measured was the sesame oil and fish oil because a little goes a long way!

Instructions:

  • Cook rice noodles (aldente) according to package instructions and set aside. (You probably won’t need the entire pack. Use your discretion).
  • Heat olive oil in a dutch oven or large pot.
  • Add garlic, green onions, and jalapeno. Saute one to two minutes, enough to sweat and wake up the flavors.
  • Next, add the chicken stock, fish sauce and sesame oil. Bring to a slight boil.
  • Stir in shrimp and mushrooms. Simmer until shrimp done and mushrooms tender.
  • Lastly, add your last few ingredients – pepper and lime juice.

Don’t forget to taste along the way and season to your liking! I added fresh ginger and ground coriander…

Now comes the fun part… building your bowl!

  • First, add noodles to the bowl.
  • Ladle in your soup. (That’s why it’s important to cook your noodles aldente)!
  • Finally, add your veggies, garnishes, and sauces (cilantro, bean sprouts, basil, mint, lime wedges, sriracha, garlic chili sauce… whatever floats your pho)! Endless possibilities guys!

Bon Appetit!
