Boil the noodles & bok choy
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Remove the root ends of the bok choy; cut into 2-inch pieces. Add the noodles to the pot of boiling water; stir gently to separate. Boil, 5 to 7 min., until al dente. In the final 2 min., add the bok choy. Reserving ¼ cup cooking water, drain and toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking.

Mise en place
Meanwhile, roughly chop the cilantro leaves and stems. Pat the shrimp dry with paper towel (remove the shells from the tails if desired); season with S&P.

Cook the shrimp
In a large, high-sided pan (non-stick if possible), heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Add the garlic and sauté, 30 sec. to 1 min., until fragrant. Add the shrimp* and ½ the spices. Cook, 1 to 2 min. per side, until opaque and cooked through.

Combine the noodles & serve
To the pan of shrimp, add the noodles and bok choy, the hoisin, vinegar, ⅔ of the cilantro, ½ the reserved cooking water and the remaining spices. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 min., until combined. If the sauce seems dry, gradually add the remaining cooking water until you achieve your desired consistency. Divide the noodles between your bowls. Garnish with the remaining cilantro. Bon appétit!
