Shirataki Spaghetti Stir-fry with Shrimp | © 2014 |

Shirataki (shee-rah-TAH-kee) noodles are made from Konjac flour, which comes from the roots of the yam-like Konjac plant grown in Japan and China. They are mostly composed of a dietary fiber called glucomannan and contain very few calories and carbohydrates. ( or even carb-free). Some shirataki noodles are made out of tofu, which have a small amount of carbs.
Shirataki are typically sold in wet form -- the noodles are bagged in liquid. All it requires is rinse and drain them before using for the recipe. They do not have much flavour by themselves, but absorb flavors well from other ingredients you can combine them with. You can easily find shirataki noodles at Asian stores or online.

  • 200 g Shirataki spaghetti, drained
  • 200 g Shrimp, shelled
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 tsp Ginger root, shredded
  • 1 tsp Garlic, chopped
  • 150 g Chinese cabbage, shredded
  • 100 g Carrot, shredded
  • 100 g Leek, shredded
  • 50 g Radicchio, shredded
  • 3 tbsp Sweet chilli sauce
  1. Drain and rinse shirataki noodles very well. Set aside. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil into a skillet over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add in seasoned shrimp and cook until they turn pink. Remove and place them in a bowl.
  2. Add the remaining olive oil into the skillet, then garlic and ginger. Cook for a few seconds, then add in all the shredded vegetables. Cook for a minute. Add shirataki spaghetti, stir-fry 2 minutes. Stir in sweet chilli sauce and shrimp, heat through. Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed. Serve immediately. | © 2014 | | © 2014 |

I love the sound of these noodles, Angie...AND the gorgeous dish you made with them! Scrumptious!

Jessica @ Jessiker Bakes 22/2/14 19:23

I love this dish! It looks so delicious, and the colours are so vibrant!

Sam Hoffer / My Carolina Kitchen 22/2/14 20:07

How pretty. I don't think I've ever seen a more beautiful presentation of spaghetti.

chow and chatter 22/2/14 20:45

looks tasty and new to me love learning about new food to try

motherrimmy 22/2/14 21:15

I have everything but the noodles. Since a trip to the store is planned anyway for today, I'll be sure and pick them up. The asparagus I have in the frig will be terrific in this dish.

Eva Taylor 22/2/14 22:18

I discovered these noodles a few years ago and although they do have quite an odour when first opened the strong flavours of this beautiful stir fry would certainly enhance these unusual noodles. My husband can't stand the texture, but I don't mind it particularly if I know it is not a carb and it has very few calories, I can be very forgiving!

Alex 22/2/14 22:43

What a beautiful dish, Angie. My mouth is watering!

Rosita Vargas 22/2/14 23:08

Te ha quedado exquisito esta pasta me encanta sobremanera,abrazos.

Tricia @ Saving room for dessert 23/2/14 01:17

The noodles are wonderfully interesting. I will look for them and give it a go. The ginger and shrimp combination is perfect. The colors in this dish are amazing. Very pretty!

Ann Jones 23/2/14 03:02

Great looking dish, yum! I bet my family would really enjoy this!

Monica 23/2/14 03:19

I love this! I buy yam noodles for hot-spot (shabu-shabu)..not sure it's the same thing but I totally want to look for this. I've heard of the tofu version but never seen it in stores. Time to look harder.

Gina 23/2/14 04:56

Healthy, inexpensive, tasty and beautiful. What more could one ask?

Medeja- CranberryJam 23/2/14 05:39

I have never heard of Shirataki noodles before but the salad looks amazing. I think it is actually great that they don't have much flavor but rather absorbs flavors of other ingredients.

Hasna 23/2/14 09:02

something similar to wat i was luking for.. lovely colors too

Shobha 23/2/14 09:42

Yummy and exotic dish.. would love to make it .. but we sometimes don't find the ingredients where I live.. Thanks for your comment on Beetroot Raita ..
Angie Raita means some veggies or fruits added to the churned yogurt..In South India it is known as pachadi and they add tempering to it.

This is such a gorgeous dish Angie! Love how colorful and pretty it looks! I have seen shirataki noodles at our local asian market but have never tried cooking with them - they sound awesome and can't wait to give them a try next time :)

Vicki Bensinger 23/2/14 13:45

I've never heard of Shirataki noodles before but can't wait now to get some to try with some of my favorite stir fry recipes. From what they're made from you'd think they would have some flavor. Very intriguing. I may have to run out today and find them so I can use them with this evenings dinner. Thanks for sharing this.

Unknown 23/2/14 14:34

Absolutely brilliant! Not only I love the flavours, but I always love your beautiful presentation... and the noodles on the silver platter looks gorgeous.

Susan 23/2/14 16:12

I love being challenged when I come to your blog with new ingredients. I must find an Asian market to look up these noodles. Hubby would love this dish, but I'm vegetarian so I would add the shrimp last for him! XOXO

I used to eat shirataki noodles all the time in college! Love this tasty stir fry using them...all that flavor in the sauce makes up for the noodles not having much flavor!

I am a big fan of stir fries and this one is a total winner...bursting with colors and flavors. Great post Angie.

Elisabeth 24/2/14 16:09

Hi Angie, thank you for your sweet and caring comment. I adore your shirataki spaghetti, and shrimp has to be my most favorite crusted versatile!

Ana Regalado 25/2/14 10:29

Angie , I never thought that you could use Shirataki for stir-frying ! We use it when we have a hot pot :D I called it konnyaku , it is the same , right ?

Jeanette | Jeanette's Healthy Living 25/2/14 14:15

Such a pretty dish Angie - I've tried both regular shirataki and tofu shirataki - different in texture, but both nice and light.

[Reply] 25/2/14 15:45

I love me any good stir-fry :-) This looks delicious and your bowls look terrific. I need to buy me some of those!
