Method

  1. Bring the stock and shredded ginger to the boil in a large pan, add the noodles, then simmer for 4 mins until tender.
  2. Drain, then cool under cold running water. Mix together the soy, tahini and 2 tbsp water (or more if you need) to make a dressing the consistency of single cream. Toss the cooled noodles and fish with the dressing and cucumber. Scatter with the spring onions and sesame seeds, then drizzle with a little sesame oil, if using.

I used a mixture of peanut butter and Tahiti and it was great. I'm not sure the ginger really added anything, and I left out the stock - turned out to be a good call as would have been way too salty otherwise.

I have made this with both tahini and peanut butter - peanut butter was way better. Also - my family are not cucumber fans so I have added red pepper, mange tout or soy beans depending on what's in the fridge. My family love this, and I love it because it's so quick to make.

This was really quite salty and bitter, which is a shame as I really liked the idea of it. It might be better with peanut butter as I used tahini.
