A simple and delicious way of eating without cranking up the oven.
- 4 ounces soba noodles
- 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- ½ teaspoon sesame oil
- ½ teaspoon white granulated sugar
- ½ tablespoon Sriracha
- ½ cup carrots, julienned (matchstick size)
- ½ cup sugar snap peas sliced diagonally
- ¼ cup radish sliced thin in half circles
- 1 stalk celery, thinly sliced
- ¼ cup English cucumbers sliced thin in half circles
- 1 tablespoon neutral oil (like avocado)
- 10 peeled, deveined tail-on shrimp (I used 16/20’s in this recipe)
- Kosher salt
- Sesame seeds
- Thinly sliced green onions and chopped cilantro for garnish
- Cook noodles according to package directions - do not overcook, drain, rinse well with cold water, drain again and transfer to a bowl
- While noodles are cooking, in a small bowl combine vinegar, soy, sesame oil, sugar and sriracha - stir well and set aside
- To the noodles add carrots, peas, radishes, celery and cucumber - mix and add a little sauce (adding more sauce as needed)
- Heat a pan over medium/high, add oil and justvwhen it’s about to smoke add the shrimp and cook about 1 minute - season with Kosher salt, add splash of ½ tablespoon soy and 1 tablespoon Sriracha; mix well and cook until done, remove shrimp from heat
- Place the noodles/vegetables on serving plate, top with shrimp and garnish with green onions, cilantro and sesame seeds
Making your own dressings is the best - and I love this one.
- ¼ cup light miso paste
- 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- ½ cup neutral oil (I used avocado oil for this one, canola or vegetable works well too)
- 2-3 tablespoons of water
- Honey (optional)
- Fresh ground pepper to taste
- Combine first 5 ingredients in a bowl, mix into a thick paste
- Slowly whisk in oil until the dressing is emulsified
- Add 1 tablespoon water at a time to thin dressing to your liking - at this point you can add a little honey if you want on the sweeter side
- Add pepper to taste
- Use the dressing on your favorite salad, grilled vegetables or even fish.
Exactly what you think, but more delicious and the tomatoes are roasted.

I like to make this and keep it in the fridge. Then when I need a snack, it's not only filling & delicious, but it's super healthy for you. Low in fat and calories but high in protein.
