Cold 'Chinese' noodles great to beat the heat / JAPANESE HOME COOKING

Bookmark and Share
A DISH OF hiyashi-chuka, cold "Chinese" noodles, is a good choice for lunch on a scorching day. "Partly due to the quality of water, chilled noodles are rarely seen in China. I would say it is a Chinese dish born in Japan," says Tomoshige Ichikawa, owner and chef of a Chinese restaurant.
The key is cooking the noodles thoroughly and cooling them quickly. Choose toppings to taste. Myoga, shiso or cooked shiitake slices will add zest. Give the sauce a twist by adding sesame paste or chili oil.

INGREDIENTS
(serves four)

For hiyashi-chuka:

* 4 servings of fresh Chinese noodles
* 4 eggs
* 40 grams loin ham
* 1/2 head of lettuce (160 grams)
* 8 mini tomatoes
* Sauce (60 cc each of rice vinegar and soy sauce, 3 Tbsp sugar, 5 grams finely-chopped ginger, 1 tsp each of mustard, lemon juice and sesame oil, 100 cc water)

For cooked shiitake mushrooms:

* 4 fresh medium shiitake mushrooms
* 1 Tbsp soy sauce
* 2 tsp each of sake, sugar and mirin sweet sake
* 1 tsp sesame oil

METHOD

For hiyashi-chuka, mix ingredients for the sauce and chill. Hard-boil and peel the eggs. Cut in fourths lengthwise. Cut ham and lettuce into thin strips. Immerse the lettuce in ice water to make it crisp. Drain. Cut mini tomatoes in half crosswise.

Bring water to a boil in a large pot, loosen the noodles and drop in pot. Add some cold water when hot water is about to boil over. Pull out a few noodles and drop them in water. Press lightly with the fingers. If they are half transparent, drain the noodles and cool under running water until manageable. Wash with hands to remove the slippery layer and soak in ice water. Drain and serve with toppings and sauce on top.

For cooked shiitake mushrooms, cut off the shiitake stems. Mix all ingredients in a plastic bag and knead lightly to keep the shape intact. Transfer to a suitable container, cover loosely with a plastic wrap and microwave on low for 4 to 5 minutes. Get an even flavor by turning over once while heating.
