Every once in a while I crave these flavors and must have them, nothing else will suffice. It’s different things for different people…some must have chocolate, some must have a big juicy steak with potatoes, but for me, I crave Asian flavors. Maybe it’s because when I was growing in my momma’s belly that’s what she ate. There are two reasons I love this dish: 1. It’s very refreshing and light, and 2. The dish comes together in 10-15 minutes, which I think is pretty awesome. All you have to do is boil the noodles, make the dressing while you’re waiting, thaw out some frozen shrimp and julienne a cucumber. Here’s how to do it:
1/2 lb glass noodles
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tsp sriracha
2 tbsp sesame oil
1 tsp honey
1 tbsp walnut oil or vegetable oil
1 tbsp sesame seeds
1/2 lb shrimp, cooked
1 english cucumber, julienned
Boil the noodles in heavily salted water, until al dente, about 10-12 minutes.
In the meantime julienne a cucumber:
Make the dressing by whisking to combine the soy sauce, rice vinegar, sriracha, sesame oil, honey, walnut oil, and sesame seeds. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired.
