In large bowl, soak noodles in warm water until flexible, about 15 minutes; drain and place in large dry bowl. Set aside.

Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix together chili sauce, fish sauce, lime juice, 1/2 cup (125 mL) water and chili paste; set aside.

In wok, heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil over medium-high heat; stir-fry garlic, shallots and green and red peppers until softened, about 4 minutes. Add to noodles.

Add remaining oil to wok; stir-fry shrimp until pink, about 2 minutes. Add fish sauce mixture and bring to boil; reduce heat to medium. Stir in egg; cook, stirring, until sauce is thickened, about 1 minute.
