Spice up your yakisoba with chili sauce

If you’d like to add a little heat to your shrimp yakisoba, you can definitely try adding chili paste or sriracha sauce. Both chili garlic and sriracha sauce is a popular hot sauce that have a moderate level of heat.

Add your sauce as garnishing, start with a small amount and add more to taste, as both chili paste and sriracha can be quite spicy for those with low tolerance to spicy food.
