From the Test Kitchen

Hearty, delightfully chewy udon noodles are a comfort food staple perfect for pairing with umami-rich sauces, like the combo of black bean sauce, soy glaze, and sesame oil that we’re using in this dish. For a final kick, we’re stirring in fresh lime zest and juice.

1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

Remove the noodles from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Peel the carrots; thinly slice on an angle. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate the lime to get 1 teaspoon. Halve the lime crosswise; squeeze the juice into a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the soy glaze, sesame oil, black bean sauce, and 1/4 cup of warm water. Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels; remove the tails if desired.
