This Asian Noodle Salad Recipe was created by my friend Karlen Poma from Monterrey, California. Karlen works as a private chef, and her dishes are always as beautiful as they are creative. I traded some Eastern Shore Honey for this amazing Asian Noodle Salad recipe. It was a sweet deal.
Adapting our Asian Noodle Salad Recipe made with Honey
Modify this dish in any number of ways to suit your taste. Change up the protein if chicken isn’t your thing. This recipe would be delicious with grilled rockfish for example, or, consider serving this as a side dish to another asian inspired main course.
We always encourage you to play with your food! Here are some ideas on how to modify this Asian Noodle Salad recipe:
- Julienne some carrots, scallions, red pepper, green pepper, snow peas, bean sprouts or any of your favorite veggies in season, simply stir fry in a little of the extra oil mixture and toss them in!
- Add salted peanuts or cashews into the mix
- Swap out for your favorite protein, instead of chicken, try using seared blackened rare tuna, salmon or try these noodles with grilled shrimp.
- Sprinkle fresh chopped green onion or sesame seeds on top
This is delicious with all the extras or by itself.
As a side note: In this recipe, Karlen used soba noodles, there are many options of noodles for asian inspired dishes. Asian noodles vary in ingredients, size and length and shape based on region of production. Decide which noodle you like best, choose from buckwheat soba noodles, ramen noodles or udon noodles.
