Servings 4

Ingredients
  

  • 4-5 Angel Hair Nests - JGP item 04108
  • 2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 2 Tbsp Sesame Oil
  • 1 Tbsp Honey
  • 1 Tbsp Rice Vinegar
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • 1" Piece Fresh Ginger
  • 2 Tbsp Sesame Seeds
  • 2 Tbsp Scallions
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Crushed Red Pepper (optional)

Instructions
 

  • Chop the greens of the scallions into ¼ inch slices. Finely chop or grate the garlic and ginger. About 1 Tbsp each.
  • Cut each nest of Angel Hair pasta in half once into 2 equal halves. This makes the noodles shorter and easier to eat as a cold salad.
  • Make the sauce: Combine sesame oil, soy sauce, rice vinegar, honey, garlic, ginger.
  • Cook Angel Hair pasta according to directions: Bring 4 quarts of water to a rolling boil, add pasta nests and cook until internal temperature reaches 165° F or approx. 1 ½ - 2 minutes. Quickly cool under cold running water, drain and set aside.
  • Fold together the pasta, sauce, scallions and sesame seeds. Optional: Add as much or as little crushed red pepper depending on desired heat level.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour for best results.
  • Before serving, add salt and pepper to taste.

Notes

  • This dish works great as a simple side to your favorite sushi, grab and eat on the go, or can be turned into a full main plate.
  • Other ingredients that can be added: Bean sprouts, snow peas, shredded carrot, cucumber, bok choy, chicken, shrimp, scallops or crispy breaded pork.
  • Black sesame seeds would give a nice pop of contrast and look really high end.
