Soba Noodles with Shrimp

Randy Mayor; Cindy Barr
Yield 1 serving (serving size: 2 cups)
Cooking the soba takes about 6 minutes, and you can chop and assemble the remaining ingredients while the noodles cook. Purchase peeled and deveined cooked shrimp, or buy raw shrimp and add them to the boiling water a couple of minutes after adding the noodles. This recipe is easily doubled if you need more than one serving.

  • 4 cups water
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dark sesame oil

  • 1/8 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped cooked shrimp (about 3 ounces)
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
