Cook’s Tip Kelp noodles will become softer and more intensely flavored the longer they marinate. If time allows, leave them in the marinade overnight for use the next day.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups rice vinegar
  • 1 cup shoyu
  • 1½ pounds kelp noodles, thoroughly washed
  • 1 cup arame
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed with a garlic press
  • 2 tablespoons crushed red pepper flakes
  • 4 scallions, trimmed and finely chopped
  • ½ pound sunflower sprouts, washed, dried, and separated
  • 4 cups finely shredded Napa cabbage (about ½ head)
  • 2 Asian pears (see Note), cored and finely diced
  • ½ pound enoki mushrooms, broken into individual strands
  • Zest and juice of 2 limes
  • ¼ cup sesame seeds

Instructions

  1. In a large nonreactive bowl, combine the vinegar and shoyu. Add the kelp noodles, separating the strands with your fingers. (If necessary, use a plate to keep the noodles submerged.) Let marinate for at least 30 minutes (see Tip).
  2. When you’re ready to proceed, use tongs to transfer the kelp noodles to a serving platter. Place the arame in the marinade and soak for 10 minutes. In a frying pan, heat the sesame oil over low heat. Add the garlic, red pepper flakes, scallions, sprouts, cabbage, pears, mushrooms, and lime zest and sauté for 3 to 5 minutes. Add ¼ cup of the reserved marinade along with the arame and cover the pan. Cook until the vegetables are wilted and fragrant, about 3 minutes more. Add the lime juice and sesame seeds and stir to combine.
  3. Top the kelp noodles with the sauteed vegetables and serve.l

Notes

Ingredient Note An Asian pear is a fruit with a texture that is very dense and watery, like a water chestnut.
