Sesame Noodles With Green Onions & Crispy Wontons

Sesame Noodles With Green Onions & Crispy Wontons

I love these noodles because they’re simple, but yet complex. 

INGREDIENTS

1 Pound Soba Or Udon Noodles

1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/4 Cup Soy Sauce

1 Teaspoon Chili Garlic Paste

1 1/2 Teaspoons Rice Vinegar

2 Tablespoons Toasted Sesame Oil

1/2 Teaspoon Minced Garlic

1/4 Teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper Flakes

1 Teaspoon Minced Fresh Ginger

3 Green Onions (Sliced)

1/4 Package Wonton Wrappers (Cut Into Strips)

Canola Or Vegetable Oil For Frying

Black Sesame Seeds For Garnish

 

Add canola or vegetable oil to heavy skillet and bring heat to medium-high.  Add wonton strips and fry on both sides.  They are ready to turn when one side has bubbled up and turned a very light golden brown.  Remove from heat and place on paper towels to drain excels oil.  Store fried wontons in airtight container until ready to use. 

Bring large-size pot of water to boil.  Add 1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt.  Add noodles until done.  Reserve 2 tablespoons of noodle water.  Drain noodles and return noodles to pot. 

In small-size bowl combine soy sauce, chili garlic paste, rice vinegar, toasted sesame oil, garlic, red pepper flakes, and ginger.  Whisk to combine. 

Place pan of noodles back over a medium heat.  Add sauce and reserved noodle water.  Stir well to coat.  Continue tossing until warmed through.  Remove from heat. 

Break the fried wonton strips up a bit and toss with noodles. 

Toss in green onions and sprinkle with sesame seeds. 

Serve immediately.
