Hot Cashew Noodles *

Friday evening is very often "noodle evening" in the H&M household. Here is the version we had last week:

For 2 persons

- 1/3 cup (about 80ml) cashew nuts
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar (I used malt vinegar)
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1.5 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- a pinch of salt
- 1/2 teaspoon chili paste (or 1/2 chopped chili pepper)
- 60ml water

- fresh noodles (ramen)
- about 250gr shrimps
- salt
- about 4 tablespoons Chinese liquor (or white wine)
- green veggies like chives, negi, nira....
- optional, 1 teaspoon dried coriander (or fresh, even better)

Put the cashew in a blender together with garlic, vinegar, sesame oil, soy sauce, sugar, chili pepper or hot paste, water, salt, and blend everything (this sauce can be kept in the fridge for 1 or 2 days).

Chop the green veggies you want to use.
In a frying pan or a wok, saute' the shrimps with the Chinese liquor (or wine) and a pinch of salt. Add the veggies, then the sauce, and cook while you boil the noodles (2min).
Once the noodles are cooked mix everything well, and decorate with crushed cashew and coriander.
