- 1/2 cup chicken broth (preferably low-sodium)
- 2 teaspoon cornstarch

Start by making sauce: Whisk together ginger, rice vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, chicken broth, cornstarch, and chili garlic sauce. Set aside
Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in wok or large saute pan. Season shrimp with salt and pepper, then add to heated oil. Cook until shrimp turns pink, about 1 minute per side. Remove cooked shrimp to plate and squeeze on the lime juice. Keep warm.
Add the other 1 tablespoon of oil to pan and add vegetables. Saute on medium-high heat until crisp tender, about 3-4 minutes. Pour in sauce and let simmer with vegetables for 1 minutes. Add cooked noodles and toss to combine. Top with shrimp and serve.
