DIRECTIONS

  • In a skillet, sauté the shrimp, ginger, and garlic in the oil for 3 minutes or until shrimp is cooked. Set aside.
  • Meanwhile, cook noodles according to package directions. Drain; rinse in cold water and drain again.
  • To serve, layer noodles, shrimp, cabbage, carrots, radishes, basil, and jalapeno in individual bowls. Pour dressing over top of each serving and sprinkle cashews or wasabi peas over top.
  • A Word of Caution: I highly suggest using the recommended 1 1/2 tsp of wasabi paste to start. Only add more if, after mixing it with the rest of the ingredients in the individual bowls, additional heat is desired. The sauce by itself never seemed hot to us, so we used almost an entire tube of wasabi -- and subsequently cried our way through dinner.
