Remove shrimp from skillet; cover with foil set aside. Meanwhile, drain and rinse the noodle substitute; pat dry with paper towels.

  • Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon canola oil in the skillet. Add vegetables to hot oil; stir-fry 3 to 4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add noodle substitute and hoisin sauce mixture to the vegetables in skillet; stir to coat. Return shrimp to skillet; toss together until heated through. Divide among four bowls. If desired, sprinkle with sliced green onions. Drizzle with sesame oil. Serve immediately (sauce will thin as it stands).
