LIME SHRIMP with UDON NOODLE

LIME SHRIMP with UDON NOODLE

This next recipe came about after a long day on the water when all I wanted to do was pour a glass of wine and kick back a bit.  You know those days when you ask your significant other what they would like for dinner and all you get is ‘surprise me’.  So I poured that wine and thought and came up with a tasty winner.

So easy too.  Just a few ingredients: quick cooking shrimp, some udon noodles and some seasonings.  At the beginning of the boat season I make a healthy batch of Gomashio – sesame salt.  It adds that touch of something special to Asian inspired dishes, stores well and is super easy to make. (my recipe for Gomashio here).
