Filipino Stir-Fried Rice Vermicelli with Shrimp and Snow Peas
There are many Filipino dishes under the umbrella category of “pancit.” This is our version of pancit bihon, a stir-fry made with rice vermicelli (bihon). Though some versions are quite sparing in ingredients, the shrimp and vegetables we’ve included make the stir-fry hearty enough to serve as a main. A combination of fish sauce and soy sauce gives the noodles an umami-rich savoriness that’s brightened at the end with lime juice. Be sure to use rice vermicelli that is thin and slightly squiggly; wide, flat rice noodles won’t work here. The vermicelli needs only to be soaked and drained, making this an easy single-skillet dish. As with all stir-fries, once cooking begins, it goes quickly, so have all ingredients ready before you start.
