Tried: Aussie's Peanut-Lime Noodle Salad

TracyK's picture

Wow!! Wonderful, wonderful stuff. This is sure to be my default recipe for picnics and etc. this summer.


I used a package of rice vermicelli. The grocery store had NO hot peppers of any kind (idiots), so I added a couple dashes of half-sharp paprika and a dash of ground chipotles. Also I forgot to pick up fresh ginger (idiot!) so I had to add a 1/2 tsp of dried...still delicious!


I garnished with the chopped peanuts and red peppers, and sprinkled black sesame seeds over the top for a nice visual contrast.


Delicious! It'd make a great main dish salad with some grilled chicken.


Thanks Aussie!!

Oh, yeah!! It is delicious.  I have served it with some pulled pork mixed in too.

They have a purple cast on my screen.

Ahh crap, sorry. Maybe the effects of Wordpad.  Let me mess around with the second photo and post it as a jpeg.


Wait a minute...


Whoops, sorry, both images were already deleted in a fit of anger. 


Thanks for the heads-up, Mean. If anyone else sees the purple hue, please tell me. The picture looks normal on my computer.

Michael do you have a program to put your pix in jpeg or a gif rather than a doc file? Your picture would be a lot clearer.

Glad you like it.

Maybe I should try it again - don't eat cold noodles myself. :)

Found one of the sources for this recently - a strange little cookbook called Terrific Pacific. The other source was my head presumably.

Odd that, the things we cook but don't eat? I have entire menus I've cooked over and over, fine-tuned and repeated, all the while never having sat down to eat the meal in it's presented form.

This looks very good...hang in there with the camera, before you know it you'll be able to design those shots and put them whereever you'd like.

Noodle color looks fine to me, considering the soy and peanut butter.  The picture is kind of fuzzy though.  The larger round things on the salad (hot peppers? WOW) and the fish cakes look very red-orange.  If that is the right color, how do you make those fish cakes, and what makes them that color?  It looks like loads of paprika.

I can't tell what color your noodles are, because I am laughing so hard at you post, my eyes are leaking.

Hey Michael- when I clicked on the picture a box came up saying it was loading to my c drive. It was taking so long that I stopped it. Did the pic show 'regular' for everyone else? Or is it just me? (I'm using my home computer, therefore using Netscape, perhaps that has something to do with it?)

But, but, its SUPPOSED to taste like that!

Mine too, I let it load to my desktop, scanned it for viruses and then opened it.

Hey all. Don't even waste your time downloading it. It's not important anymore. I'm sure i'll be bothering you with more food photographs in the future.

Aussie, I hope you don't mind, but I posted this recipe over at RecipeZaar. Someone was asking about an asian-style noodle salad and it sounded like yours would fit the bill. I gave you all the credit, though!! :-)

I'm the last person in the world who wants credit for recipes under any circumstances, especially when that combo of ingredients has been around for several hundred years.      And  it's in many books.  


But, you are sweet.

This suggests an interesting tactic. Post really bad recipes and give your enemies the credit.

Hah! Of course, then you'd get the bad reviews.

Hey Gretchen
We are saying goodbye to the interns here on Friday & since it's so bloody hot AND humid here, I thought this salad would be good to bring to work. You mentioned that you used pulled pork in your version. What rub did you use & was it your oven version (marinade 8 hrs, bake 8 hrs)?

But you CAN'T import Weapons of Mass Destruction! government official in Dubai upon learning that Smoke & CO detectors have a bright RADIOACTIVE sticker on them.


 

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with parsley sauce, goat cheese garlic mashed potatoes, Galena Cellars Niagra grape wine & Pie Boss's apple crumble topped with Ruth & Phil's sour cream/cinnamon ice cream.

As I 've said several times, I began making this before rubs were de rigeur and jsut put a heavy coating of brown sugar and black pepper on it.


I truly do not think a rub makes a big difference in pulled pork because once you "pull" it, there is relatively little surface 'stuff" that gets into the actual amount of total meat. So, the answer is, just whatever you do, and/or have on hand.


I think this is good with pork and it is also great with shrimp. Add some peas, a bit of carrot jullienne, and even a bit of broccoli couldn't hurt.


Have a great time.

I found that the brown sugar and black pepper rub is just delicious on the on the pork butts.  I love it just that way.  I am sure that there are a ton of rubs that can detract from the pure flavor of the "pig", but simple and plain is always better for BBQ here in Eastern NC.

The smallest thing well done, becomes artistic.

Exactly.  The rub will rarely detract from the pig, but sauce can detract very easily.
