This picture and recipe was sent to me by my dear Paco Herrero who is an avid follower of my cooking. He took the trouble to write out the recipe in spanish for me and also send me a pic. He uses japanese yakisoba sauce for this dish…If you cant get yakisoba sauce i shall tell you how to make it (ive just researched it on the internet….so it might not be that authentic.
200 grams udon noodles (if you dont get you can use rameen noodles)
chicken strips marinated in ginger garlic and a bit of soya sauce (optional)
vegetables of you choice like shredded cabbage, chopped asparagus, carrots , bell peppers (capsicum) etc
a few shitake mushrooms soaked in hot water for 30 minutes or till soft
a pinch of salt and white pepper and a pinch of sesame seeds
cooking oil to stir fry
heat the oil in a wok and stir fry the marinated chicken strips and keep aside when done (do not over cook ) then in the same wok add the vegetables acording to cooking time and stir fry till just about done. Add the sesame seeds and the seasoning and add the udon noodles (soften them in hot water to loosen them) . Add the shitake mushrooms and also a bit of the water they were soaked in. Lastly add in the yakisoba sauce and serve hot!
YAKISOBA SAUCE. it is a japanese stir fry sauce available in most asian supermarkets. If you cant get it just combine some light soya sauce, some rice wine, some rice vinegar and sugar…mix till well dissolved.
Thank you soo much Paco !!!
