Cold Spicy Asian Noodles

One of my favorite summer dishes. Add cold marinated chicken, fish, imitation crab or shrimp to make it a main dish, or serve as a side.


Cold Asian Noodles

1/2 box of spaghetti noodles
1-2 carrots, sliced very thinly on bias
1/2 English cucumber, medium dice
1/4 red onion, thinly sliced and no longer than 1/2 inch
1/2 bunch of cilantro, roughly chopped
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon honey
1-1 1/2 teaspoon siracha
1 pinch garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
Cook pasta according to directions on box. Rinse thoroughly with cold water to stop cooking process.

Combine sauce ingredients, adjust according to taste. Toss sauce, vegetables and noodles and chill until service.

Note: I made this recipe up, so I’m still working on sauce/pasta ratio, so more sauce may be needed.
