Soba Noodles with Shrimp, Vegetables and Spicy Red Pepper Sauce

  • Prep Time 0:10
  • Cook Time 0:10
  • Estimated Cost $19.50

Last week at the farmers market I lingered near the cool Afghan specialty foods stand, tasting the different samples of breads with special chutneys and yogurts. Finally, I decided to buy the jalapeno-red pepper jelly, knowing it would be delicious with cream cheese and crackers or as a glaze over chicken or fish. As a bonus, it also made the perfect simple sauce for this fresh, healthy stir fry. Substitute chicken, tofu or even salmon for the shrimp if you are so inclined.

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil Pantry
  • about 10 large raw shrimp, deveined and tails removed $5
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced Pantry

  • 4 cups spinach $1.50
  • 2 carrots, sliced on the bias $1

  • 1 small piece ginger, peeled and minced $0.50

  • 1 small bunch cilantro, chopped $1

I’m always a sucker for a shrimp & noodles dish. I’m not one to play the cynic, but does that little bit of jelly make a substantial-enough sauce for this noodle bowl?

I was excited to see this recipe because I had bought the same jelly from a farmers market, but could not think of what to do with it so it sat in my fridge for some time. It does go well with shrimp, which I would have never thought of on my own. I used frozen spinach rather then fresh spinach, which I think was a mistake, if you don’t have fresh spinach I would skip it. Thanks so much for this recipe!
