Cold Sesame Noodles


12 oz. angel hair pasta

3 Tbs. dark sesame oil

2 Tbs. peanut oil

1-inch piece fresh ginger, minced

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 tsp. red chili paste, such as sambal

1 lime, juiced

2 Tbs. brown sugar

1/2 C. creamy peanut butter

3 Tbs. rice vinegar

3 Tbs. soy sauce

6 Tbs. hot water

1 Tbs. toasted sesame seeds

2 green onions, thinly sliced on the diagonal

Fresh chopped cilantro leaves, for garnish


Cook the noodles in large pot of boiling unsalted water over medium heat until barely tender and still firm. Drain immediately and rinse with cold water until cold. Drain the noodles really well and transfer to a wide bowl; toss with the sesame oil so they don't stick together. Chill. In a blender combine the peanut oil, ginger, garlic, chili paste, lime juice, brown sugar, peanut butter, vinegar, soy sauce, and hot water. Blend. Toss the noodles with the peanut sauce until well coated. Serve at room temperature or chilled; garnish with the sesame seeds, green onions, and cilantro.

Cooking with Sesame Oil

If you intend to use an oil as a means of providing flavor to a dish, then use a more flavorful oil such as extra-virgin olive oil, pumpkin seed oil, or sesame oil. They each have a significant amount of flavor but are rarely used to sauté or fry because they tend to burn at high temperatures.
