Top each bowl of this Asian-inspired dinner recipe with fresh cilantro and a squeeze of lime juice to make the flavors pop.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Soak noodles in enough hot water to cover (about 2 quarts) 10 minutes or until just soft; drain. Rinse with cold water; drain. Meanwhile, in a large bowl whisk together vinegar, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Add noodles; stir to coat.

  • Add shrimp, tofu, celery, cabbage, and chile pepper to noodle mixture; toss gently. Season to taste with salt. Serve with cilantro sprigs and a big squeeze of lime.


Cover and refrigerate any leftovers for up to 24 hours.


Bean thread noodles (also called glass noodles, cellophane noodles, or Chinese vermicelli) can be found in the ethnic section of many grocery stores or at Asian markets. Cooked rice noodles work, too.

Very odd dish. The flavor was OK. But I wasn¿t expecting a cold dish. Plus the ingredients didn¿t meld well. Will not make again.
