~Suki’s Singapore Noodles~

My friend Suki makes an amazing noodle bowl. She’s from Singapore and when she moved to the U.S. she brought this delicious, authentic recipe with her. I’ve watched her chop vegetables like a Samurai, assemble spring rolls like she was competing in an Olympic sport…and then there’s this noodle bowl. Well, you’ll just have to try it and see.

~The Shrimp~

Marinade 1 lb. raw shrimp in the following concoction for 2-8 hours:

1/4 cup olive or peanut oil

2 teaspoons sea salt

2 teaspoons freshly ground pepper

2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves

3 cloves fresh garlic, minced

Juice of one lemon, throw the peel in too

When the shrimp is finished marinating, grill on a charcoal grill.

(when done, wrap in heavy foil to keep warm)

~The Veggies~

In a skillet, heat 3 teaspoons olive or peanut oil

Stir fry:

1 peeled, sliced onion

3 large carrots, peeled and sliced on extreme diagonal

~The Noodles~

Cook 8 oz. Udon noodles or whole wheat vermacelli according to package.

Toss with a little olive or peanut oil in a large bowl.

(Cover to keep warm)

    this is a good one. I am so sorry you have allergies. I would love it if you sent me a list of the foods you need to avoid so I could post a “Kimber Friendly” recipe every once in awhile 🙂

    That’s so sweet!! You’ve posted a few I have on my i to try and a few I have tried. You’re doing good!! (but I’ll send you a list since you like experimenting) I usually hit the recipe websites to find what I need because I hate spending time looking through cookbook and analyzing everything. I might enjoy it more if I had time, but that’s why I love your blog so much – because I can find so many helpful and fun ideas without spending tons of time looking elsewhere!! 😉
