Prepare noodles

Meanwhile, combine the crushed red pepper and oil in a small sauce pan. Heat the oil over medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes. With a colander, strain out most of the crushed red pepper, reserving the oil. To the oil, add the honey and tamari; whisk to combine. Add shrimp to sauce while pasta finished cooking.

Combine ingredients and cook the pasta and shrimp for an additional 2-3 minutes to absorb the sauce. Remove from heat and top noodles with green onion, cilantro, and peanuts. Serve hot.

*use more or less crushed red pepper depending on your heat preference.
