  2. Mix teriyaki, soy, maple syrup, rice vinegar, and sriracha together to create the sauce.

  8. Return the meat and vegetables to the skillet and mix thoroughly.

Recipe Notes

  • You can use any type of noodle you want for these shrimp teriyaki noodles. I like to use rice noodles, but spaghetti noodles or even ramen noodles would also work well.
  • If you don’t have sesame oil, you can substitute olive oil or vegetable oil. However, the flavor will not be as distinctly Asian as if you used sesame oil [1].
  • I like to use sriracha sauce to add a little bit of spice to these teriyaki steak noodles, but you can leave it out if you prefer. Alternatively, you can add a little chili powder or hot pepper sauce if you want to heat things up a bit.
  • You can substitute white onion with green onion. You can also trade out chicken or pork for the shrimp.

What to Serve With Shrimp and Steak Teriyaki Noodles

One of the best things about this dinner is that it goes well with a variety of sides.

The most common side to serve with teriyaki is rice. You can use white rice, brown rice, or even cauliflower rice. Another option is coconut rice which goes great with the Asian seasoning in this dish. You can add coconut flakes or milk to achieve a deeper flavor.

Of course, since you already have teriyaki noodles or pasta in the recipe, you may not want to serve them with another starch. In that case, you can opt for a salad or cooked vegetables.

A simple green salad with a light dressing is always a good choice, or you could get a little fancier and make an Asian-style salad with Mandarin oranges and sesame seeds.

For vegetables, broccoli, green beans, and snow peas would all be good options. Or, if you’re looking for something a little heartier, you could serve it with roasted Brussels sprouts and sauté of onion.

You could also add a pineapple or mango side to this meal for a touch of sweetness. If you are looking for a good dessert to complete this meal, try a simple fruit sorbet or some almond cookies.

If you want to keep things simple, you could just serve the shrimp and steak teriyaki noodles as is. They’re so flavorful and satisfying that they don’t really need anything else.
