  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
  • 1 pound of peeled and deveined shrimp
  • 2 packages of refrigerated yakisoba noodles (approximately 11 ounces total)
  • 1/4 cup of sliced green onion tops (only the dark green part)
  • 1/2 cup julienned carrots
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced white or yellow onion
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced celery
  • 1 cup shredded green cabbage
  • 1/4 cup of soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
  • 2 teaspoons of toasted sesame oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Heat half of the oil in a large pan over high heat. Add the white onion and cook for 3 minutes or until onion has started to brown and soften.
  • Add the carrots and celery, cook for 3-4 minutes until vegetables have started to soften. Add the cabbage along with 2 tablespoon of water. Cook, stirring constantly, until cabbage is wilted and cooked through, about 2-3 minutes. Season the vegetables with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Remove the vegetables from the pan and plate onto a plate.
  • Heat up the remaining oil in the pan and add the shrimp. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 2-3 minutes per side or until pink and opaque.
  • Add the vegetables back into the pan with the shrimp.
  • Remove the packets of yakisoba noodles from their package and run under hot water until you're able to break up the noodles, 1-2 minutes. Add the noodles to the pan with the shrimp and vegetables.
  • In a small bowl mix together the soy sauce, honey, ginger, garlic and sesame oil.
  • Pour the sauce over the noodle mixture, tossing to coat evenly. Add the green onions and cook for 1-2 minutes more.
  • Serve immediately.
