This weekend, I had one of my favorite shrimp recipes, and I have always wanted to try cooking some soy sauce inspired asian noodles, so I picked up some udon noodles to go with the shrimp. They paired really well together!
Here’s the shrimp recipe:
1 bunch Cilantro
3 – 4 cloves garlic
1 ginger root
1 cup olive oil
2/3 cup soy sauce
Uncooked Tail on Shrimp
1 – Remove the shell from the uncooked shrimp and skewer the shrimp. Place the shrimp skewers in a marinating dish.
2 – Marinade – In a blender or food processor combine the cilantro, jalapenos, garlic, ginger root, juice of the limes, olive oil and soy sauce. (I usually put 1-1/2 jalapenos in the blender with the seeds in them and take the seeds out of the other 1-1/2 jalapenos. This can be adjusted to satisfy the degree of “spicy hot” you like)
3 – Pour marinade over the skewered shrimp and place in refrigerator overnight. Place shrimp skewers on grille over a medium – medium hot flame. Cook on each side 3 – 5 minutes or until shrimp is done.
4 – Can be served as an appetizer with or without cocktail sauce or as a main dish over rice.
And here’s the udon noodle recipe I used. It made a LOT of extra sauce and it was pretty oily, so I think the ingredients could even be cut in half! I only made the sauce portion of the recipe without the veggies (minus the hot pepper part because I’m not a spicy food fan).
