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

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!

Either you collect all those peppers packets from pizza store than buy a whole bag of pepper flakes which you will not be able to use it all anyways. Open your kitchen windows so you don;t suffocate when cooking this red spicy sauce.

Soba is basically consistently eaten with chopsticks, and in Japan, it is generally viewed as respectful to gulp the noodles uproariously. This is particularly basic with hot noodles, as drawing up the noodles rapidly into the mouth demonstrations to chill them off.
