In college I got a big ol' wok for Christmas along with fun things like garlic oil, chopsticks, etc. It was so fun experimenting with new recipes even if it was on a tight college budget. This One Pan Simple Asian Shrimp Noodles is inspired by that big ol' wok.

Prepare rice noodles by following the instructions on the package, setting it in water to soften. Set aside.
In a wok or frying pan over medium high heat, heat the oil or butter and cook the garlic for 1 minute, or until golden, stirring often.
Add the peppers and continue to cook for another 2 minutes.
Add the shrimp and toss for about 2-3 minutes, until almost cooked through, just turning pink. Quickly add the egg and stir for a couple seconds until egg starts to set.
Add zests, soy sauce, and sugar and stir for a minute or so until the sauce is bubbling.
Add the rice noodles and toss until noodles are hot through, evenly coating everything well.
Turn off the heat and add fresh basil. Toss and serve immediately.
