I was so excited to be invited to take part in the Fortune Asian Noodle Blogger Recipe Challenge for a chance to win one of three cash prizes. I selected Fortune's Yakisoba Noodles for my entry. They’re restaurant-quality pre-cooked, fresh refrigerated noodles, and they taste great! This handy product makes it a snap to prepare quick, healthy meals! Fortune Yakisoba Noodles are ready to eat in less than 3 minutes(!) and come in four delicious flavors: Mandarin Orange, Hot & Spicy, Teriyaki, and Soy Ginger. Simply add protein, vegetables, and toppings – and you’ve got a fabulous meal in no time! Fortune Yakisoba Noodles are also 100% natural – with no MSG, cholesterol, or trans fats.
For our contest entry, we could choose between two categories: cold noodle salads or stir fry using a Fortune Asian Noodle product. I used the Mandarin Orange Yakisoba Noodles to create my Tropic-Asian Shrimp and Mandarin Orange Noodle Salad. My contest entry combines select tropical and Asian-inspired ingredients to make a refreshing main dish salad that’s perfect for warm evenings. It's a snap to make, and it tastes great! The dressing is sweet-tart, with a bit of nuttiness from the addition of almond butter. I loved this salad…and I hope it's a winner.
