Ginger Scallion Noodles adapted from Momofuku

After I made the ginger scallion sauce, I was thinking what I would do with it? The closest sauce I had eaten to this sauce is the shredded ginger condiment usually served with steamed chicken in Malaysia. And honestly, I could not really visualise Momofuku's delicious Ginger Scallion "Noodles".

I was a skeptic. I did not believe that the ginger scallion sauce would taste good on noodles. But I was not going to steam a whole chicken just to go with that sauce, way too much trouble. So, I took a leap of faith and decided to go the Momofuku way. Ginger Scallion Noodles.

Simple ingredients
1. Ginger Scallion sauce. Click HERE for my last posting on the recipe.
2. 2 dry egg noodles or you can use Japanese udon noodles
3. Pot of water
4. 1 whole cucumber
5. 1 tsp sugar
6. 1 tsp salt

Simple Steps :

1. Pickled cucumber (this is served as a side dish with the noodles) - slice cucumber as thin as possible and placed in a big bowl. Add 1 tsp sugar and 1 tsp salt. Rest for 10 mins before serve.

2. In a pot of boiling water, put in the dry egg noodles. Once the dry noodles breaks open scoop up noodles in a strainer and let the noodle run under cold water. Put the noodles back into the boiling water and after 3 minutes, scoop the noodles up to serving platter.

3. Mix in the Ginger scallion sauce and toss together till well blended. I added 1tsp of oyster sauce on the noodles for additional taste.

4. Add in the pickled cucumber and we are in momofuku business :)

Verdict : Momofuku's ginger scallion noodles are famous for a reason and I guess it's because it taste real good. My Hubby-D gave his 2 thumbs up and look at how fast he slurpped the noodles up.
