Foodie Byte: We used quick cooking angel hair pasta for this recipe; any pasta such as linguine, Chinese egg noodles or soba noodles can be used in recipe. For added nutritional value, add stir fried veggies, such as sugar peas, asparagus or broccoli, to the sweet chili shrimp mixture.

Preparation

  1. Cook angel hair pasta according to package directions.
  2. While pasta is cooking, combine green onions, 1 tablespoon sesame oil, soy sauce and sesame seeds in a large bowl and stir to blend. Add hot drained pasta and toss to evenly coat. Keep warm.
  3. Drain thawed shrimp and pat dry with a paper towel to remove excess moisture.
  4. Heat 2 tablespoons sesame oil in large skillet or wok; add shrimp and stir fry over medium heat for 3 minutes or until shrimp are pink, stirring frequently. Add Holland House White Cooking Wine and sweet chili sauce. Heat for 2 minutes or until bubbling and liquid is starting to reduce.
  5. To serve, divide pasta evenly on 4 plates; top each evenly with sweet chili shrimp mixture.
