Serve these noodle bowls warm, at room temperature, or even chilled. Harissa, a North African spice paste, is available at well-stocked grocery stores, but if you can't find it, use hot sauce.
Serves 4


+ Add To Shopping List
2 pkgs. (8 oz. each) soba noodles*
2 tablespoons canola or olive oil, divided
1 pound medium shrimp (36 to 42 per lb.), peeled and deveined
1 1/2 teaspoons harissa* or your favorite hot sauce
3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup toasted sesame oil
1 cup thinly sliced radishes
2 green onions, trimmed and thinly sliced diagonally
1 tablespoon black sesame seeds


Total: 25 Minutes

1. Cook soba according to package instructions. Drain in a colander and rinse with cold running water until noodles are cold. Drizzle with 1 tbsp. canola oil, tossing to coat so noodles don't clump together.

2. Meanwhile, heat remaining 1 tbsp. canola oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add shrimp and cook just until pink and cooked through, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat.

3. Whisk together harissa, soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until just warmed through, about 2 minutes.

4. Transfer drained noodles to pan of shrimp and toss with dressing. Divide among 4 bowls, then top with radishes, green onions, and sesame seeds.

*Find soba noodles and harissa at well-stocked grocery stores.
