Ebi Yakisoba (Stir-Fried Noodles with Shrimp & Vegetables)

The Japanese noodle stir-fry yakisoba is traditionally cooked on a teppanyaki griddle, but this version, from Golden Sky, part of the Mango House community in Aurora, Colorado, is made in a skillet. Look for precooked yakisoba noodles (sometimes sold as part of a kit) along with katsu and yakisoba sauces with other international ingredients at well-stocked grocery stores or Asian markets. In a pinch, you can substitute 8 ounces dry yakisoba or even ramen noodles for the precooked ones, just prepare according to package directions

Total Time:
30 mins


  • 10 - 12 ounces precooked yakisoba noodles

  • 2 tablespoons katsu sauce

  • 2 tablespoons yakisoba sauce

  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil

  • 2 tablespoons peanut or canola oil, divided

  • 8 ounces raw shrimp (31-40 per pound), peeled and deveined

  • 2 cups coarsely chopped green cabbage

  • 1 cup diced onion

  • 1 medium red or yellow bell pepper, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

  • 1 small carrot, cut into matchsticks

  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced


  1. Rinse yakisoba to separate the noodles. Mix katsu sauce, yakisoba sauce and sesame oil in a small bowl. Set both near the stove.

  2. Heat 1 tablespoon peanut (or canola) oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add shrimp and cook, undisturbed, for 30 seconds, then stir-fry until they turn pink, about 1 minute more. Transfer to a plate.

  3. Reduce heat to medium-high. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon peanut (or canola) oil to the pan. Add cabbage, onion, bell pepper and carrot and stir-fry until the vegetables are beginning to soften, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the noodles and scallions and cook until heated through, 1 minute. Add the sauce and shrimp and toss until everything is coated and heated through, about 1 minute more.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
