The first menu has an oriental twist. It is as good when you substitute grilled scallops, tuna, swordfish, or fresh crab for the shrimp. At our fish market and super market you can have your sea food steamed for free. The cooked seafood can then be packed in ice; by the time you arrive home, it will be cold.
1 pound (480 g) medium or large shrimp, shelled and cleaned
2 teaspoons (10 ml) dark sesame oil
2 tablespoons (30 ml) low sodium soy sauce
3 tablespoons (45 ml) rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon (15 ml) grated fresh ginger
1/8 teaspoon (0.6 ml) sugar substitute
1/8 teaspoon (0.6ml) garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon (0.6 ml) dried red pepper flakes
8 ounces (240 g) capellini or angel hair pasta
1 pound (480 g) English cucumber, cut in half lengthwise and slice very thin
2 scallions, white part only, sliced very thin
3 tablespoons (12 g) chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon (15 ml) toasted sesame seeds
If your market will not steam your shrimp, place them in simmering water until they turn pink. Drain, cool and shell and clean. Refrigerate until ready to use.
In a small bowl combine the oil, soy sauce, vinegar, ginger, sugar substitute, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes. Set aside.
Cook the pasta as per package directions till hard. Drain under cold water and place in a large bowl.
Toss the noodles with shrimp, cucumber and dressing. Add the scallions and cilantro. Garnish with sesame seeds and serve.
