Shirataki noodles

November 26th, 2011 at 12:46 pm

I finally got around to fixing the Shirataki noodles I got from Amazon. I wanted to do something simple the first time to make sure I like the taste of the noodles and don't need to cover them up. I made a simple butter and garlic sauce and sautes some shrimp in that. I seasoned the shrimp with salt and pepper and a touch of red pepper flakes. Then I rinsed the noodles and boiled them for a minute in hot water like the package said. I tasted them before I added them to the butter and shrimp and they basically had no taste. After adding them to the shrimp mixture, they tasted like butter and garlic. It was good, it had a pasta feel if not necessarily exactly the same. I can see using them for spagetti or chicken noodle soup, so I plan to use these in the future when I feel like a pasta meal, but want to keep low carb.

They did have a faint fishy smell when you first opened the pack, but it wasn't bad.

It's freezing today and the wind is blowing hard. Mom and I didn't want to walk at Walmart today so we went to Home Depot instead and walked thru it twice. It was interesting because we at least got to see different things than we usually do on our walks and it wasn't too busy.

I finished reading the library book Night Lost by Lynn Viehl. Paranormal - very good.
