- Marinate the shrimp. Combine tequila through orange juice in a small bowl, whisking together. Place shrimp in a small ziplock bag and pour in marinade. Place in refrigerator and marinate for 30 minutes.

- Make the miso sauce. To prepare the miso sauce, mix all ingredients but sesame oil in a small bowl until blended. Add sesame oil and whisk until combined.
- Cook the wonton strips. Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a medium saucepan. Drop as many wonton strips as will fit into the pan; cook for about 20 seconds until strips begin to brown. Remove from oil with thongs and place on a plate lined with a paper towel to drain. Repeat with remaining wonton strips.
- Toss the noodles. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a medium sauté pan over medium heat. Add noodles and miso sauce. Using tongs to mix, sauté for 2 minutes. Keep warm.
- Cook the shrimp. Remove the shrimp from the refrigerator and skewer, discarding any excess marinade. Place skewers on the preheated grill. Grill 3 minutes per side.
