This dish is all about the peanut sauce! I think it would be just as great with chicken or tofu.
It seems complicated, but it was super easy!
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup water
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 1/2 tbsp rice vinegar
2 tsp chili paste with garlic *I like "Lee Kum Kee Chili Garlic Paste") it comes in a jar in the Asian section of the grocery store
1/2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 lb shrimp (peeled and deveined) *Trader Joes has 1lb frozen shrimp uncooked in a bag, very convenient!
1/4 tsp salt
8 oz uncooked udon noodles (you can use linguine if you can't find udon)
1 red bell pepper, cut into thin julienne strips
3/4 cup chopped cucumber (peeled and seeded)
1/4 up chopped green onions
3 tbsp chopped peanuts
2 tbsp chopped cilantro
1. Combine all sauce ingredients in a small bowl and stir with a whisk. Set aside
(add more water if sauce seems too think..it should be the consistency of cream)
2. Start noodles according to package directions omitting salt and fat.
3. Coat nonstick skillet in cooking spray. Toss Shrimp with 1/4 tsp salt and Saute over medium high heat about 3 min on each side or until done. Add red bell pepper and green onions saute for another minute then remove from heat.
4. As soon as noodles are done, combine noodles, peanut sauce, shrimp mixture, and cucumber into a large bowl and toss well. Sprinkle with peanuts and cilantro.
