Sweet Ginger Soba Noodles with Shrimp
Shrimp, soba noodles and a delectable sauce. Quick, simple and absolutely packed with flavors. When I first read over the recipe, I had my reservations about the amount of scallions compared to the amount of liquid in the sauce. In the end it came together beautifully.

for the sauce:
1 1/2 cup scallions, diced
2 Tbsp ginger, minced
1/4 cilantro, chopped
1 Tbsp sesame oil
2 Tbsp grapeseed oil
1 Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
2 Tbsp honey
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp crushed red pepper
for the pasta
12-16 large shrimp, raw and thawed if frozen
1 large broccoli stalked, juilienned
1 carrot, juilienned
9 oz soba noodles
2 Tbsp sesame seeds
Whisk together all of the sauce ingredients in a medium bowl. Adjust soy sauce, honey and pepper flakes to taste. Cover and set aside for 10-15 minutes.
Cook the soba noodles according to package directions. Set aside.
Heat about 2 Tbsp sesame oil a large skillet set over high heat. Add the shrimp and sear until browned and opaque, 2-3 minutes per side. Set aside.
In a small skillet, dry roast the sesame seeds until toasted.
In a large bowl, toss together the noodles, juilienned vegetables and sesame seeds. Top with shrimp. Serve warm or cold.
