VARIATIONS
Serious vegetarians can replace the shrimps with fried tofu cubes and the fish sauce with light soy sauce. Add these together with the mushrooms.
The shiitake mushrooms can be replaced with other musrooms like chantarelles.
The pak choi and carrot can be wholly or partially replced with other crunchy vegetables like chinese cabbage, pepper or fennel. French beans or sugar peas are also tasteful in this dish. When you this you have to adapt the cooking times.

DORUS TIPS
Use a tasteful noodle for this dish. I prefer japanese soba noodles.
Don't overcook the vegetables. The paksoi has to stay crunchy.
