Once we have the noodles ready, we combine them with chicken, shrimp, and vegetables in a creamy sauce made from coconut milk and a sweet chili paste. Finally, we top each bowl off with fresh basil leaves, peanuts, and lime juice.

Authentic Vietnamese Spring Rolls
Vietnamese spring rolls are a little different from your traditional Chinese rolls. Made with different ingredients and cooking processes, they are perfect for filling with anything, especially chicken and/or shrimp!
In our version, we use a combination of ground beef and pork to get the right meatiness and flavor. However, we’ve tried this chicken and shrimp rendition too, and it’s amazing!
You prepare the filling by mixing everything and forming it into small balls. Once formed, the meatballs are deep-fried until crispy and then placed inside of the spring roll wrapper, covered and sealed.
Finally, you steam the rolls to give them more of a restaurant-style presentation. If you prefer, however, you can skip the steaming entirely and serve them as they are. Just make sure to let the rolls cool completely before you slice them open.
Cajun Chicken & Shrimp Alfredo
Whether you call it alfredo or fettuccine alfredo, this classic Italian pasta sauce has been enjoyed since the late 1800s. It usually contains cream, butter, Parmesan cheese, and Romano cheese. However, the typical Americanized version uses heavy cream and lots of butter.
This recipe takes the traditional recipe and swaps out some of the ingredients. In place of the heavy cream, they’ve opted for coconut milk, which gives a lighter and healthier take on the dish. Additionally, they added in some garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and oregano to spice things up a bit.
