1 tb Soy sauce
1/4 ts MSG (optional)

Chinese Shrimp Fried Rice Instructions:
Pan-fry the eggs into thin sheets in a frying pan. Remove and cut into small strips. Heat peanut oil over high heat. Stir-fry shrimp and chicken. When done, sizzle in 1 tsp. wine. Add the cooked rice. Stir until well-mixed. Add 1 tbsp. soy sauce, 1/4 tsp. MSG and the diced green onion. Add 1 tsp. salt (or more).
Stir-fry for at least 10 minutes over medium heat. Add egg strips. Serve hot. Note: The cooked rice should not be sticky. It might even be better to use day-old rice.

1 lb raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
12 ounces uncooked soba noodles

3/4 cup peanut oil
3 cups fresh basil
3 cups fresh cilantro
3 cups fresh mint
1 tbsp sugar

2 to 3 tbsp lime juice

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.
