Happy New Years everyone! To start off the new year, I’m doing this post a little differently today. Yesterday for New Year’s Eve, I catered a small party for about 15 people. The menu was centered around Middle Eastern foods and the clients loved spicy food so the menu was as such:
 
Hors D’oeuvres: 
Caprese skewers with Mozzarella pearls

Corn fritters with cilantro lime aioli (these are always a hit!)

Main course:

Spicy Thai noodles

Tilapia with a spicy mint chutney

And of course for dessert, ricotta creme cannolis with pistachios

Everything came out wonderfully but I think one of the dishes that got the most comments was the spicy Thai noodles. Now if you love spicy, than this is the perfect dish for you! And when I mean spicy, I mean SPICY! It was such a hit that I decided to share the recipe with you today.

**Helpful tips and common mistakes

When preparing this dish, you can change how spicy you want the sauce according to how much chili flakes you add to the oil. 2 tbsp will make your lips burn and is very spicy (even the clients who love spice said it was extremely spicy!) Try 1 tbsp or less if you can’t handle the heat as well. 
 
You can also make this dish cold if you prefer. Simply toss the noodles in the sauce and refrigerate. Serve the next day.
 
Although this recipe is originally vegetarian, you can add some chicken, tofu, seafood, beef, pork, really the limits are endless!

I personally also quite enjoyed this dish. I took it one step further and added spiced peanuts instead of regular. Even though the noodles are spicy, there is still a sweet element from the honey and a balance of seasoning from the soy sauce. Easy to prepare and delicious!
