This is a great hearty and healthy dinner that is ready in under 30 minutes, but when you taste it you would never be able to guess. This recipe serves 1 person with some leftover for a cold lunch salad.
- 12 medium shrimp
- 10 brussel sprouts
- Small bag of frozen yellow beans (you can also use fresh yellow beans or string beans)
- 2 oz dry soba (one serving size or one bundle, depending on how it is packaged)
- 1 tablespoon teriyaki sauce
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
Marinate the shrimp with 1 tablespoon of teriyaki sauce and 2 tablespoons of soy sauce. If you like the brand of teriyaki sauce that you normally buy then just use that. I have found that most brands that I try are too sweet and have too much garlic in them so I doctor that by adding some extra soy sauce.
In a medium sauce pan boil water and cook the soba for 2 minutes less than the instructions. Usually the instructions say to cook at steady boil for 6-8 minutes, so in this case 4 minutes will be perfect. You will be cooking the soba a little more after it finishes so you want to make sure you undercook it a little bit.
Next cut the brussel sprouts into quarters and leave the beans whole and frozen. Heat the sesame oil in a large skillet and add the beans and sprouts. Cook down for a few minutes then add the shrimp with all of the sauce that it is marinating in. Allow for the shrimp to cook for about 3 minutes on each side.
At this point the soba should be done and should be strained and added to the skillet. Mix everything together and cook for two minutes and serve warm.
Make sure you save the leftover for lunch tomorrow! It is absolutely fantastic as a cold dish as well.
