    DRESSING

    OPTIONAL GARNISHES

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cook noodles in large pot of boiling unsalted water over medium heat until barely tender and still firm. Drain immediately and rinse with cold water until cold. Drain well and toss noodles with (2 Tbsp) dark sesame oil so they don't stick together.
    2. 2
      FOR DRESSING:
    3. 3
      Combine all ingredients except hot water in a blender or food processor fitted with steel blade and blend until smooth. Thin with hot water to consistency of whipping cream.
    4. 4
      For carrot curls: peel flesh of carrot in short shavings about 4" long. Place in ice water for 15 minutes to curl.
    5. 5
      Just before serving, toss noodles with sauce. Garnish with cucumber, peanuts, green onion, and carrot curls. Serve at room temperature.
    6. 6
      * HOT PEPPER OIL: the amount you use depends on how hot you like it. 2 tablespoons.
    7. 7
      will give it a nice "bite." If your tastes run to the very hot, you might want to use 3TB.
    8. 8
      If you want to make your own oil:
    9. 9
      1/4 cup hot red pepper flakes, 1 cup oil. Combine in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to boil, and immediately turn off heat. Let cool. Strain in small glass container that can be sealed. Refrigerate.
    10. 10
      Lasts indefinitely.

      Followed the recipe to the letter, and it turned out perfectly! I love this kind of peanut-sesame sauce, and this is the first recipe that matches exactly the flavour I was looking for. Actually I use it for meat and vegetables, too, not only for pasta. Also it's very popular with french fries in this region. This will be a keeper. Thanks for posting!
      Made for Chinese / Vietnamese New Year Tag Game of the Asia Forum.

      Very good! I topped it with a little bit of microwaved chicken and cucumber shreds. I think the cucumber is really necessary; the contract is great. My only change would be to put in less soy sauce; it seemed a little heavy on it to me. My husband, who can take or leave Asian dishes, liked it. ZWT6

      I only had time to make one noodle recipe for ZWT6 and I'm glad I picked this one. Lots of flavor in the sauce. I used soba noodles and they took more sauce than written but that was no problem. Thanks from a Looney Sppon Phoodie.
