I tried the noodles with the Thai Peanut sauce and it was great.
When you first open the noodles they have a slight fishy smell... the instructions say to drain them and rinse under cold water for about 3 - 4 minutes. Then boil for 1 minute and dry them.
I put the noodles in a colander and rinsed them, etc... I used San-J Thai Peanut sauce, chunky natural peanut butter with a little coconut oil and stir-fried, green onions, shiitake mushrooms, broccoli crowns & red & green sliced bell peppers.
I just ordered more noodles from the Miracle Noodles site and this is a response I received from them:
" You will be getting your noodles very soon and I wanted to give you basic instructions on how
to prepare the noodles.
1. Open the bag into a strainer or colander.
2. Rinse actively 3-5 minutes and boil lightly for 1 minute.
3. Hand dry the noodles with a paper towel or regular bath towel until dry.
4. Add to finished sauce or dish and that is it!!
** NOTE: Any retained moisture is referred to in Japanese as aku or bitterness, so drying the noodles is essential. There is another way to dry the noodles that also removes the translucency of the noodles that is by dry-roasting them. More information on dry roasting can be found at www.miraclenoodle.com/dry-roast-shirataki.
The most common question we have received after the above instructions is why not cook with the noodles instead of adding them at the end of the cooking process. The reason is that the noodles change texture and can become chewy if they are heated up too much.
So, remember for delectable, delicious noodles, add them to your dish right before eating!!
