Shrimp and Vermicelle Coreen Noodles with Veggies

I’ve had this recipe up on my computer for two weeks now and I finally got around to making it. 🙂  It is a very quick and easy Shrimp with Vermicelle Coreen Noodles.  I don’t get these noodles in any markets near me that I know of and I was excited to see that Cost Plus was carrying it so I didn’t hesitate in grabbing me a bag.  I wanted to make them so after some search I found She Knows and this tasty shrimp version. I topped my bowl with Sambal Oelek, actually after I took this picture I dumped a bunch more into it for some spiciness.  This is a hit with the little ones 😉
