Serves 4 | Prep Time 20 | Cook Time 25

Ingredients

¼ lb Asian rice noodle (pad Thai noodles)
4 cups chicken stock or broth
2 stalks lemongrass, inner bulbs—very thinly sliced, tops crushed
1 medium garlic clove, thinly sliced
Salt and pepper, to taste
¾ lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 cup snow peas, halved crosswise
½ bunch watercress, no stems
¼ cup cilantro, finely chopped
2 scallions, thinly sliced
2 tbsp fresh lime juice


Soak the noodles in a large bowl of hot water until pliable, about 15 minutes.


Meanwhile, in a large saucepan combine the stock with sliced and crushed lemongrass and the garlic.


Cover and simmer over low heat for 20 minutes.


Season with salt and pepper and discard the large lemongrass stalks.


Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil.


Drain the noodles and cook them in the boiling water until tender, about 2 minutes.


Drain well and rinse under cool water.


Add shrimp, snow peas and watercress to the lemongrass broth and cook until the shrimp are pink and the vegetables are crisp-tender, about 2 minutes.


Stir in the cilantro, scallions, lime juice and noodles and cook just until heated through.
