Bring large pot pf water to boil. Remove from heat and add rice, stirring to separate. Soak 5-7 minutes, or until tender; then drain and rinse in cold water. Set aside.

Mix fish sauce, soy sauce, sugar and crushed red pepper in small bowl until sugar dissolves. Set aside.

Heat 1 tsp oil in wok over med-high heat. Add egg, and cook quickly, until opaque. Move to side. Add frozen shrimp to wok, cook 5-7 minutes until just cooked through. Drain excess liquid. Add garlic, stir fry 1 minute.

Add remaining oil, and then noodles. stir fry quickly until softened, about 2 minutes. Add sauce mixture. Coat noodles evenly, stirring until heated through. Stir in green onions, and bean sprouts and cook 2 more minutes. Mound on serving platter, and garnish with peanuts, lime wedges and cilantro.

Of course, you could substitute the shrimp with chicken, if you're family prefers. :) It's yummy either way.

    I googled rice sticks as I never heard of that and it says it is rice sticks noodle. The seasoning looks delicious and I will try it but I will use half the noodles and replace the other half with bean sprouts to give it the crunch I love and to save on carbs and calories. Thanks for the recipe! - 12/5/12

    Excellent recipe! I did double the sauce recipe and I cut my shrimp in half cross wise because they were bigger shrimp and I wanted bite sized pieces. I also added 1t fresh ginger from a jar. Hubby loved it. He said it is a keeper and I will be making this again and often. - 8/17/11
