3/4 cup peanut oil

Soba Noodles With Shrimp Instructions:
Prepare pesto: Mix all the pesto sauce ingredients together in a glass bowl with a whisk.
In a glass bowl, put the cleaned shrimp and cover with 3/4 cup prepared pesto sauce, mixing lightly; set aside.
Cook noodles according to package directions, then drain and set aside and then preheat broiler or grill.
You can string marinated shrimp on metal skewers, put in grilling basket, or on broiler pan.
Broil or grill shrimp until they turn pink, turning or stirring. This will take about 4 to 6 minutes, depending on the size of the shrimp.
In a large serving bowl, put the cooked soba noodles, add the remaining Asian pesto sauce, and toss together, then top with hot cooked shrimp.
* You should always wear rubber gloves when handling serrano peppers and not touch your eyes. Make sure you wash hands immediately after handling the peppers.
