Lunar New Year Noodles

Preparation & Cooking time: 20 min


Ingredients:

200g egg noodle

½ cup cooked Urimi steak cut into slices

1 cup of cooked spinach

½ cup of cooked shrimp

½ cup of caviar


Dressing ingredients:

2 tbsp tahini or peanut butter

2½ tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp honey

2 tbsp sesame oil

100ml water

½ tbsp minced garlic

chilli paste (optional)

Mix all these ingredients above to form the dressing.


Method:

#1 Cook noodles in boiling water according to the package directions (I usually cook for

1 minute less, as I'm not too fond of soft noodles). Drain and rinse the noodles with cold

water and add one tablespoon of sesame oil and mix. Place on a large plate.

#2 Place the cooked steak, spinach, shrimp and caviar on top of the noodles.

#3 Pour the dressing over all the ingredients, let your guests grab some chopsticks and

serve themselves.



TIP:

You can use any egg noodle. Using fresh spaghetti is a good alternative.
