Super Simple Garlic and Ginger Shrimp Soba Noodles

Kelly Mike - Tuesday, December 02, 2014


  • 12 ounces soba noodles
  • 1/4 cup sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 large shallot, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 8 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
  • 1 pound large shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • Zest and juice of one large lime
  • Salt to taste
  • 3 scallions, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • Lime wedges, for serving


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the soba noodles and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender; 4 minutes. Drain and rinse noodles under cold water. Transfer noodles to a large serving bowl.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of the sesame oil with the soy sauce. Add sauce to the noodles and toss.
  3. In a skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil. Add the shallots and ginger cook over medium heat, stirring, until golden brown and crisp, about 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the shallot mix to a paper towel lined plate. Add the garlic to the skillet and cook over very low heat until golden; 2 minutes. Transfer the garlic to the same paper towel line plate.
  4. In a bowl, combine the lime zest and juice with the remaining oil; stir in the shrimp and season with salt. Add shrimp to the skillet and cook on each side for about 1 minute; just until they're pink.
  5. Sprinkle the noodles with the scallions, cilantro, crushed red pepper, ginger fried shallots, garlic, and shrimp. Serve at once, or chill until needed.
