Cold Noodles, Cool With Comfort

by | Jul 17, 2012 | Food, Noodles

Cold sesame noodles offer relief on a hot summer day. I used to buy them at a Chinese take out when I worked the line in a fancy French place.  

Here is how I made them in my own kitchen the other day, craving them amid infernal heat!   IMG_7109

Simple garnish; cucumber, scallion, cilantro, bean sprouts and chicken. The dressing; peanut butter, sriracha or some hot sauce you like. Sesame oil, soy,honey,  minced garlic, rice wine vinegar and water to smooth it all out.


I used chicken thighs poached with five spice, as well as scallion tops with garlic and spice. Breast would of been a better choice, but I like dark meat, too.


Sprouts are blanched and shocked in ice water for crispness.


I didn't have lo mein noodles..Udon store bought were fine, boiled about five minutes and rinsed to remove starch, were mixed in sesame oil to coat and seperate from sticking. Dress noodles with garnish as you like, topped with some either whole leaves or chopped cilantro.

Better then take out!
