  • Boil noodles according to package directions. Before draining, add snow peas and carrot. Let cook 30 seconds.

  • Brush shrimp with sesame oil, and grill over medium-hot coals 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Arrange pasta on serving plates, and top with shrimp.

  • Wine note: Spicy foods marry well with Riesling wines. Here are a few wallet-friendly bottles that balance this savory dish: Blackstone Winery 2005 Monterey County Riesling, Covey Run 2005 Columbia Valley Dry Riesling, and Hardys Stamp of Australia 2005 Riesling Gewürztraminer.
