  • ¾ cup coarsely shredded carrot (1 large)

  • ½ cup very thinly bias-sliced celery (1 stalk)

  • cup thinly sliced green onions (3)

  • 2 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

  • ⅛ - ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Thaw shrimp, if frozen. Peel and devein shrimp, leaving tails intact if desired. Rinse shrimp; pat dry with paper towels. Set aside. Place rice noodles in a large bowl. Add enough boiling water to cover noodles by several inches. Let stand for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain; set aside.

Add the drained noodles and the marmalade mixture to shrimp mixture; toss to coat. Transfer mixture to a 2-quart square baking dish.

  3. Bake, covered, for 30 to 35 minutes or just until shrimp are opaque and noodles and vegetables are tender, stirring twice. Stir casserole before serving. Sprinkle with almonds.
