Rice noodles with sesame seeds

This was modified from a soba  noodle recipe. (Nigella Lawson)  it turned out very well as a cold dish considering you don’t stir fry it. I made 1/2 the recipe, it served 2 as a light meal in hot weather. You probably could serve it as a hot dish.

  • 75 grams sesame seed
  • salt
  • 250 grams noodle, soba, (or rice noodle)
  • 2 teaspoon rice wine vinegar, (red wine vinegar)
  • 5 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 5 spring onions
  • optional sauteed mushrooms

Toast the sesame seeds in a pan over high heat till golden brown. If you use toasted sesame seeds often they can be toasted in advance, during cooler weather to reduce the heat in the kitchen. Store them stove side in a airtight jar.

Prepare the noodle with salted water as directed by the type, the rice noodle is soaked in cold water,  then  bring to a boil. Like pasta, watch over it and avoid mushy texture. Brake the cooking with drain and rinse with (ice) cold water.

Mix the other liquid ingredients like a dressing, and toss with the cooled noodle along with the thinly sliced green (spring) onion. Toss and add the toasted sesame seed.

If possible, let the dish marinade for some time. I put the dish in the fridge and served later for supper, a cool noodle, suprisingly  savory for a no stir fry dish.

I did taste the sauce and added more honey as I use double black soy sauce and dark sesame seed oil. I could see adding more components to the dish like pea pods or green peas. We like mushrooms so some sauteed  shitake and brown beech mushrooms were added as an ingredient. Broiled beef strips would also be a  good addition.

Ginger marinated chicken skewers

Ginger marinated chicken skewers.
Adapted from http://lauralovinglife.org/2013/03/08/sesame-ginger-marinated-chicken-scewers/
Marinade for chicken
Add to a covered container big enough to hold the amount of chicken, in this recipe, 2 breasts, ginger to taste, I have dried and sifted available other than fresh, sesame seeds, soy sauce, about one quarter cup, cider (or rice wine) vinegar about equal amount to the soy sauce, sesame oil and an amount or garlic, ( sliced and mashed), to your taste. Grind in some pepper and as an addition , some brown sugar.

The chicken breast can be pounded thin, but this time I opted to slice the breast horizontally to fillets as the breast are very large and thick and it also keeps the noise level low from using a rolling pin or meat tenderizer mallet or pounding weight.
Add the sliced chicken to the marinade, cover and shake to distribute the marinade and refrigerate at least 8 hours.

Arrange by threading the sliced chicken on wooden skewers, at this time I didn’t soak them in water. On a grate over a foil covered broiler pan, place the skewered chicken slices. Place close to under a broiler set to high heat for quick cooking.
Watch out for the skewers! It may be necessary to cover the ends with foil to prevent ignition, but then again, that’s what smoke detectors are for, ( just kidding). You can omit the skewers, or use metal ones, but the wooden ones we have are easier to handle and are shorter than the metal ones. Broil and flip till done.
Served over spinach.
