  • 1 bag - Birds Eye Vegetable Medly (White Corn, Carrots, Mini Cob Corn, Snow Peas)
  • 1 pkg - Raman Shrimp Flavored Noodles
  • 1 dash - Tabasco Sauce
  • 1 dash - Soy Sauce
  • 3 - 4 dashes - Worchestershire Sauce
  • 1 - 2 dashes - Garlic Powder (depending on taste)
  • 1 - 2 shakes - McCormicks All Spice
  • 1 tbs - Olive Oil
  • 1 small - Onion

Dice Onion, set aside.

Pour frozen shrimp into a bowl, add cold water to thaw and loosen. Drain.

Add olive oil to large frying pan and heat - Do Not over heat !

Touch one shrimp to oil to see if it sizzles.

Add veggies, onion, all sauces, garlic powder, all spice. Cook on low to medium heat, stirring occasionally with lid on frying pan for 10 - 12 minutes.

Add shrimp, stir thoroughly, place lid back on pan. Cook, in a seperate pot, Raman Noodles according to package directions. Drain excess water off Noodles when done.

Turn off  frying pan, add Noodles, stir and Enjoy!!


Any frozen veggie combo can be substituted or just a pepper /onion stir fry can be used with the shrimp. This is a simple recipe that is really quick and easy to make. You can play with the ingredients to suite your taste! My husband eats it right out of the frying pan when I'm not looking!

I'm pretty sure, reading the instructions, that the shrimp was supposed to be there, and she just forgot to put them in the ingrediant list.

This recipe sounds great. My sister moved away after Katrina and really misses New Orleans cooking. When I see recipes she can use with frozen shrimp, I pass them along. This also sounds like an economic way of cooking. I love it! Thanks Cindy ;)

I think this would be great with a half pound or so of decent sized shrimp thrown in.
