Heat an enameled cast iron soup pot over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil. Cook garlic and chili for 15 seconds while stirring, then add the shrimp and cook just until it turns pink. Add the bok choy and toss a few times to coat with oil. Cover the pot with the lid for 1 minute to wilt the greens. Remove the lid and continue to cook while tossing, until the shrimp is cooked through and the moisture is cooked off. Remove everything to a plate.
Heat remaining tablespoon of oil in the pot over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the eggs and scramble quickly. Add the noodles and cook for 1 minute, tossing to separate the strands. Return bok choy and shrimp to the pot.
Pour in the sauce and stir to combine. Continue cooking until all ingredients are hot and evently coated with sauce. Serve with lime wedges and chopped coriander.
