Soba Noodles with Shrimp

This is a great recipe for precooked frozen shrimp. This recipe is great when served immediately or when chilled and served the next day.

4 ounces uncooked soba (buckwheat) noodles
6 cups water
1 cup shredded carrot
2 tablespoon rice vinegar
2 teaspoon dark sesame oil
2 teaspoon low-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1 cup chopped cooked shrimp (about 3 ounces)
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
2 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

Bring 6 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add noodles; cook 4 minutes. Add carrot to noodles in pan; cook 2 minutes or until noodles are done. Drain.

Combine vinegar, oil, soy sauce, garlic sauce, and sugar in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add noodle mixture, shrimp, onions, and cilantro; toss to coat. Cover and chill.
