Soba Noodles with Grilled Shrimp and Cilantro


1 Protein
1 Vegetable
1 Starch

1/2 cup Soba Noodles (cooked)
1/2 Tbs. Extra Light Virgin Olive Oil
Unflavored Nonstick Cooking Spray
5 Green Onions, White Onion Part only thinly sliced and separated into rings - save the top part of green onions for later
1 clove of Garlic, coarsely chopped
1 tsp. finely grated Lime zest, plus 1/2 Tbs. fresh lime juice
1 serving Large Shrimp, shelled and veins removed
Top Part of Green Onion (Scallions), finely chopped
1/4 cup chopped Cilantro
1/4 tsp. Crushed Red Pepper
Lime Wedges, for serving

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the noodles and cook, stirring, until tender, 4 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water. In a medium bowl, toss cooked soba noodles with extra light virgin olive oil.

In a skillet, spray with Unflavored Nonstick Cooking Spray. Add the white part of onions and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until golden brown and crisp, 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the shallots to paper towels. Add the garlic to the skillet and cook over low heat until golden and crisp, 2 minutes. Transfer the garlic to the paper towels.

Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. In a bowl, combine the lime zest and juice the shrimp and season with pepper. Spray pan with unflavored cooking spray and grill the shrimp over high heat, turning once, until glazed and just white throughout, 3 minutes.

Arrange the noodles on a large platter. Sprinkle with the scallions, cilantro, crushed red pepper and the fried onions and garlic. Arrange the shrimp on top and serve with lime wedges alongside.
