If you want to make these part of a meal, then know that they go wonderfully well with salmon: just get some fillets, sear them in a hot pan, leaving the interior fleshily coral. Because they're served cold,They are the perfect, if unconventional, food to take along for a picnic.

Recipe Ingredients for Sesame Soba Noodles with veggies and shrimp

50 g sesame seeds
250 3 bundles soba noodles
2 teaspoons vinegar (I use rice vinegar or Chinese black vinegar)
5 teaspoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons honey
1 T ginger, fresh chopped
2 teaspoons sesame oil
2 red bell peppers, julienned
20 baby carrots, julienned
4 green onions
1/2 cup shrimp, cooked

Recipe Directions for Sesame Soba Noodles with veggies and shrimp

  1. Toast the sesame seeds in a dry pan over a high heat until they look golden brown, and tip them into a bowl.

  2. Bring a large pan of water to the boil and add some salt. Put in the soba noodles and cook them for about 3 minutes (or according to packet instructions) until they ALMOST al dente. Have a bowl of iced water waiting to plunge them into after draining. REMEMBER, DONT COOK THEM UNTIL THEY ARE TENDER OR THEY WILL GET GOOEY LATER. Dont boil them longer than 3 minutes or you will be sorry. (I only boil them 2.5 minutes.)

  3. In the bowl you are going to serve them in, mix the vinegar, soy sauce, honey and oil (and other optional dressing ingredients). NOTE: I often double the recipe for the dressing because I find this too dry otherwise.) Then finely slice the spring onions and put them into the bowl with the cooled, drained noodles and mix together thoroughly before adding the sesame seeds and tossing again.

  4. Leave the sesame seed noodles for about half an hour to let the flavors develop, although this is not absolutely necessary or sometimes even possible.

  5. Serves 4 as part of a meal; or 2 (HUGE PORTIONS) when eaten, gratifyingly, as they are.

  6. Great with grilled chicken, shrimp, ahi tuna, and pork ?? particularly if you use a sweet or a Asian marinade like Teriyaki.
