Thai Noodles with Shrimp

Spicy, Salty Sour, Sweet, gimme something good to eat! This delicious dish, inspired by sea salt with food will dazzle your tastebuds with its various flavors: spicy peppers, sour lime, and sweet fish sauce. I couldn’t get over how simple this was to make, and how good it tasted. I’m already looking forward to leftovers for lunch. I think I’ll eat them at room temp.
