Oodles of Noodles

Now playing: Herbie Mann - Oodles of Noodles
via FoxyTunes

The stir-fry come salad type dish I created the other day turned out a treat. The shrimp were marinaded in honey, ginger, garlic, tamari, fish sauce, tahini and dijon mustard. Then stir-fried with scallions. The layers are raw spinach, raw dikon radish (mouli), toasted noodles, and then the shrimp mixture. Drizzle the layers with:

Papaya Almond Vinaigrette

1/2 c. papaya puree
1/2 c. toasted almonds
2 tbsp. mirin
2 tbsp. honey
1 tbsp. tamari
1/4 c. rice wine vinegar
3 tbsp. canola oil

Grind, pulp and emulsify this down and strain.

Garnish with ice cold scallion green curls.

All the layers come together in flavour and nutrition.

Papaya, almonds and spinach are good for a heart healthy diet. If you want to take it one step further, marinaded tofu for the shrimp.

Stop! Don't throw them out just yet! Papaya seeds are great to use in the event of a tummy-ache.
