‘Liang Mein’, Mandarin for ‘cool noodle salad’, is enjoyed all over the Far East from Japan, China, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Burma, Laos, Indonesia, the Philippines and more. It can be eaten as a main course and is rather refreshing in hot summers. Liang Mein can have different toppings and ingredients ranging from meats to seafood medleys or be kept vegetarian. This recipe fuses Japanese soba (buckwheat) noodles and green tea noodles with a wasabi, lemon and light soy dressing and juicy tiger shrimp, topped with a generous sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds.
