To make the sauce, combine the Hoisin sauce, rice vinegar, sambal oelek or chili paste, sesame oil, 1/2-inch grated ginger, pineapple juice, soy sauce, lime juice, and honey, and mix well. Add the shrimp and set aside to sit for 20 minutes while you prep everything else.
In a large skillet heat the sesame oil over medium-high heat. Once shimmering, add the serrano, ginger, and garlic. Sauté for 1 to 2 minutes.
Add the peppers and radishes, and sauté for 5 to 8 minutes, until softened. Toss in the sweet potato noodles.
Add the sauce that the shrimp is marinating in, but hold the shrimp for now, and stir in the sweet chili sauce. Reduce heat to medium, cover, and cook for about five minutes, tossing once until the sweet potato noodles begin to soften.
Add in the shrimp and cook for 3 to 5 minutes longer until the shrimp is pink and cooked through.
Serve and top with chopped peanuts and fresh cilantro.
