The Japanese have so many interesting noodles. And for me, the noodle fiend, I could eat some every day. Today, after a busy time of visiting neighbors, attending the flea market and working out some things with my husband, I decided to go with somen noodles for dinner. I had some shrimp and sliced pork belly(thick slice unsmoked bacon). This is not really a recipe but a putting together of ingredients in order to eat noodles.
You will need to make the broth from here: http://atomic-temporary-17826715.wpcomstaging.com/2011/05/26/soba-noodle-soup/
After that, chop some red bell pepper, celery and onion. Cut in half some snow peas. Boil the pepper, celery, onion and snow peas in the broth for about 3 minutes. Remove and set aside.
In the same broth, boil 1 1/2 cups of cleaned shrimp for about 2-3 minutes. Remove and set aside.
Grill about 1/2 pound of thick sliced, unsmoked bacon, cut into strips and set aside.
Cook 2 bunches of somen noodles in the broth for 2 minutes. Add the vegetables, shrimp and pork belly and toss until well mixed. Serve with soy sauce. Enjoy.
