I made up a batch of sesame noodles. I saved out a 1/4C of the sauce to marinate some shrimp. I'll cook them up to top the noodles.

I have lost all enthusiasm for cooking tonight. At least at the moment.
It's so muggy outside, coupled with eating a couple cold hot dogs and a handful of chips for lunch, that my appetite went out the window...

I am needing some inspiration. When are those dinners going to start rolling in?

What exactly is that, Andy?
I have shrimp. I have noodles. I have toasted sesame seeds and some sesame oil. Can I make sesame noodles?

Great idea Andy!! It's definitely Sesame Noodle time again isn't it!
I'm going to a big barbeque potluck on the 4th, and I bet out of the dozens of Potato Salads, I'll be the only one with Sesame Noodles. By the way, I've been adding grated carrot for color lately.

Good grief Pac!! You were never on the Sesame Noodle bandwagon?
Here's the recipe in case Andy is in the kitchen.

Sesame Noodles
1 Lb Chinese Noodles

C Soy Sauce
C Sesame Oil
C Rice Wine Vinegar
C Sugar
2 TB Chili Oil
2 Tb Toasted Sesame Seeds
3-4 Ea Scallions, finely chopped

************************************************** **********

8-9 Oz Chinese Noodles
C Soy Sauce
C Sesame Oil
2 Tb Rice Wine Vinegar
2 Tb Sugar
1 Tb Chili Oil
1 Tb Toasted Sesame Seeds
2 Ea Scallions, finely chopped

Cook the noodles according to package directions.

While the water is coming to a boil, combine the soy sauce, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, sugar and chili oil in a medium bowl. Whisk together and set aside.

When the noodles are cooked to your liking, drain the noodles in a colander, but do NOT rinse. Shake out excess water completely.

Transfer noodles to a low flat pan or tray*. Pour sauce mixture over hot noodles. Toss to coat evenly and continue to toss about every 5 minutes, until completely cool and all the sauce is absorbed by the noodles.

Transfer to a platter or bowl. Garnish with sesame seeds and green onions.

Serve at room temperature, or cover and refrigerate to serve cold.

*Note: tossing the noodles in a low wide dish will allow the noodles to absorb all the sauce much faster and easier.

The hot chili oil gives this dish a "subtle zippiness." For spicier palates, offer Srirachi Hot Chili Sauce on the side.


From: Dragon Lady Blog (Mary Foster)

You can use thin spaghetti with good results too. I use honey instead of sugar, and more sesame seeds

That's them. They are addictive! Make them at your own risk.
