Cold Sesame Noodles are so versatile because it goes with so many different proteins. Sesame Noodles are served on their own or as a side dish alongside crispy chicken thighs or sliced pork loin. My personal favorite is to serve sesame noodles with poached shrimp and 7 minute soft boiled eggs. Because I used the hearts of palm noodles I reduce the carb count significantly compared to using traditional rice noodles. Calories are also lower so I can add extra protein to my meals. You Can also make this recipe with Zucchini noodles or any other low carb pasta alternatives.
This recipe is meant to be served cold so you can make a lot of it in a short amount of time. I will make a double batch of sesame noodles along with shrimp, chicken and pork then portion them out into Reusable Meal Prep Containers. Each meal has a different protein to give me variety throughout the week. I mentioned above that I love to make 7 minute soft boiled eggs with sesame noodles. They’re easy to make and that jammy yolk porn goodness adds flavor and healthy fats.
The Peanut sauce dressing for the cold sesame noodles can be used for all kinds of recipes. It can be a dipping sauce for chicken or shrimp as well as fantastic Thai peanut wing sauce. When preparing this recipe I like to toss the peanut sauce with my other ingredients so they can absorb the flavors. Before serving toss the noodles again to coat them for maximum deliciousness.whether you enjoy these noodles on their own or alongside your favorite proteins this low carb recipe is a keeper for sure.
