Once I received the complimentary noodle packets in the mail, I started my recipe creations. I couldn’t resist starting with a family favorite, Vietnamese Shrimp Summer Rolls.IMG_2237 I infused the Yakisoba noodle packet into the shrimp roll. The rolls are so cute.

You can see the shrimp, noodles and mandarin oranges showing through. I made a dipping sauce with some of the seasoning packet. So good, I promise I will post this recipe too!! Next I steps up the gourmet style and went for a special cold noodle dish for two, Mandarin Orange Lobster Yakisoba Salad. 13503035_1012839538824007_6729360137147461816_o
This cold salad is a blend of lightly poached lobster, Yakisoba noodles, mandarin oranges, chopped celery, green onions and a vinaigrette that is made with the seaoning packet. A gorgeous dish that is easy to make and can be served for an everyday meal or for a special occasion. You can only imagine how my kids are loving this recipe testing session, shrimp, lobster, and next crab meat. I will say that the next test dish does contain imitation crab chunks. This is not so much of a shock anymore because it is one of the most popular ingredients used in sushi rolls. IMG_2316This salad, Mandarin Poppy Seed Crab Yakisoba Salad is so refreshing and would be great for serving at a brunch or any backyard party. The poppy seed dressing is mixed with the seasoning packet and then tossed with the Yakisoba noodles, mandarin oragnes, imitation crab chunks, celery, green onions and sliced almonds. Check back to get all three of these recipes soon.

You can find Fortune’s ready to use noodle products in the produce isle at stores such as Fred Meyers, Safeway and local market places. I was so thrilled to find my local Roth’s was carrying the Mandarin Orange Yakisoba Stir Fry Noodle packet. Not able to stop myself, I bought more packets and headed back home, called the family and said I was doing an Indian inspired noodle salad next. This is one great way to get your adult children to come see you, simple cook and they come. 🙂 Blending the noodles with the seasoned coconut cream, cauliflower, chicken, curry paste, crunchy nuts, sweet raisins and more, was the perfect move.
One last recipe, taste buds ready and the vote was in. The Curry Chicken Mandarin Orange Yakisoba Salad is the winner for us. I hope that JSL Foods thinks so too. I would love to see this cold noodle salad be their pick!!
