Noodles, Shrimps, Cashews with Sweet and Sour Sauce

Cooking something new and healthy every day can get very tedious. So, in an attempt to try a new ingredient from a different cuisine, I got these transparent Asian noodles and went for shrimp cashews with sweet and sour sauce.

It was  a HUGE success! I made a modest amount since it was my first try, but quickly ended up making more because we inhaled it! Let’s get started!
