   Place rice noodles in a large bowl.  Cover with water; soak 45 minutes. Cut
   chicken into 1 1/2 by 1/3 strips.  Cut shrimp in half lengthwise; set
   aside.  Combine water, fish sauce, sugar, lime juice, paprika, and red
   pepper in a small bowl; set aside.  Reserve 1/4 of bean sprouts for
   topping; combine remaining bean sprouts and green onions.  Drain noodles.
   Heat a wok over medium-high heat.  Add oil and heat.  Add garlic; fry until
   garlic starts to brown.  Increase heat.  Add chicken; stir-fry until almost
   cooked, about 2 minutes.  Push chicken to one side. Break egg into wok.
   Stir quickly to break up yolk and scramble egg. When egg is set, mix with
   chicken.  Add drained noodles, shrimp, fish-sauce mixture and 3 tablespoons
   peanuts.  Cook and stir over high heat 2 to 3 minutes or until noodles are
   soft and most of liquid is absorbed. Add green-onion mixture; cook,
   stirring, 1 more minute. Spoon onto a heated platter. Sprinkle with
   reserved bean sprouts, then with remaining peanuts.
