I have been looking into using sesame oil recently into a handful of my dishes but I have been curious about the Paldo Sesame Noodles. I have been trying to look for it recently in the supermarkets but haven’t found any. Copycat recipes of it didn’t bring me anything. And no, I don’t want the peanut based sesame sauce that comes up whenever I search for sesame noodles. No. I want the simple clean taste of sesame oil on my noodles. And so I gave it a try.
So instead of waiting around, I decided to just experiment. I used instant ramen noodles, boiled it, and drained it. In a plate, I put some sesame oil, and used half of the chicken flavored seasoning (since there was no soup) only. I added some pepper as an afterthought. I then added the newly cooked and drained noodles to it and mixed it. Ta-dah. My version of sesame noodles.
The sesame oil flavor was a bit lacking. I am not sure how to strengthen this taste without resorting to peanuts or some kind version of it. 🙂 Hmmmm. Any ideas? Maybe change to pasta? And add crushed sesame seeds?
