From BREWERY GULCH INN
A DISTINCTIVE CRAFTSMAN-STYLE B&B

Yield:

Serves 8-10 people (as a side dish)

Ingredients

  • 1 12 oz. package somen noodles
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup toasted sesame oil
  • ¼ cup rice wine vinegar
  • ¼ cup shoyo or soy sauce
  • 1 cup chopped scallions
  • ½ cup honey
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 tbsp. sambal paste or siracha
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • ½ cup toasted sesame seeds
  • 8 oz. shiitake mushrooms

Directions

When I worked at Louie’s Backyard in Key West, we served a similar noodle salad with peanut butter. It was quite spicy, but I prefer this milder preparation – Rick Anderson

Cook somen noodles in salted water and strain. Cut shiitake mushrooms into strips (remove stems). Saute in 2 tablespoons of oil for 1 minute. Mix remaining ingredients in large bowl with a whisk. Toss noodles and shiitakes with dressing and serve at room temperature.
