Sanukiya udon noodles with shrimp and vegetables

Huge fan of thick noodles, I recently found these frozen ones which are really easy to prepare, their texture is chewy which I love and compared with this recipe form another word for comfort food in my "easy and delish" taste room.

Sanukiya udon with shrimp and vegetables

3 packets of sanukiya udon noodles (package contains 5)
150-200 gr shrimp
medley of peppers, sliced
half onion, sliced
1 zucchini, cut in cubes
3-4 spring onions
1/2 cup cashews
4 tbs soy sauce
1 tbs honey
1 tbs red wine
1 tbs white wine vinegar or rice vinegar
olive oil or sesame oil
1 Jalapeno sliced, optional

Heat a non-stick pan (even better a wok pan) with oil and throw the zucchini cubes, onion and pepper slices in. Cook until they soften. Meanwhile boil water in another pan and throw the noodles in. They only need a minute or two. Add the shrimp in with the cooked vegetables and another minute or two till they become pink. Add the soy sauce, honey, red wine, vinegar and cashews and let it simmer for a bit. Finally add the noodles and give it a good toss. You want the noodles to be covered with this yummy sauce it's now created. Serve in small bowls, top it off with some sliced spring onions and dig in!

For those on the spicy side, add sliced jalapenos on top for an extra kick! Enjoy!
