thought i'd start a thread for noodle recipes. i looove noodles, whether it's stir fries, soupy noodles, spicy... love them all. share any good noodle recipes you know.
i'll start with this one, i posted it the other day in the 'what are you eating?' thread.
this is a dish a friend taught me to make and it's absolutely delicious:
chinese noodles - the yellow ones, not the rice ones.
boil noodles. strain.
cut salmon into small, bite-size slivers. steam or broil for very little time. salmon should be raw-ish. unless you're one of those people who like salmon totally cooked in which case, cook away.
i use the cheaper frozen salmon that comes in bags. no point in buying fresh stuff if it's just to mix with noodles anyway.
in a separate bowl, prepare noodle dressing. these aren't exact measures, i kind of vary quantities depending on how much dressing i'm making, and this is an approximation - i kinda just mix it up and add stuff until the texture and taste is right.
approx. 1tb tahina (middle eastern sesame paste)
approx 1tb. soy sauce
bit of powdered wasabi
bit of gari (sushi ginger, chopped up into tiny bits)
tablespoon rice vinegar
teaspoon or two of sesame oil (only really necessary if your sesame paste is too thick, not if you buy the more liquid stuff)
about a tablespoon of black sesame seeds
note: you can also cheat and instead of the rice vinegar and sesame oil, use that japanese salad dressing they sell in shops that's soy and sesame-based.
the dressing should be thick enough to just coat the noodles but not so thick it's impossible to mix. a bit of this dressing goes a long way and it's best if you mix it in with the noodles in little bits at a time since it's not the easiest to blend. you have to add the dressing to the noodles right when you're done straining them, otherwise they clump together and it's really hard.
put noodles in bowl. top with salmon and steamed but still crunchy broccoli.
you can use chicken instead of salmon if you like.
