Soba With Sesame Peanut Sauce

"A nice Asian side dish that goes very well with seafood skewers. I personally add a little more peanut butter because I like the taste and to thicken the sauce a little more."

    The perfect side for coconut tilapia. I didn't rinse the noodles, just drained and mixed with the sauce, so they were still warm. Lots of nice flavors in this sauce.

    Yummy! I used tomoshiraga somen noodles that I already had (the last time I tried to buy buckwheat noodles this was the closest I could find). I forgot the extra tsp sesame oil on the noodles because I made the sauce first and just tossed in the noodles when they were done cooking. For my taste, I thought the proportions of sauce ingredients were just right as written. Thanks for the recipe!
