    RECIPE INTRODUCTION

    Yakisoba is a Japanese noodle stir-fry dish, which I love because I enjoy stir-fry, especially when you add some kind of seafood medley like shrimp, salmon, or even sautéed imitation crab. Try this delish dish and let me know what you think. I bet you’re going to love it, too!


    What's more, you can't really find this dish anywhere even in most Japanese restaurants. You might be able to, but NOT like the way I make it. Check this out and in advance, "Bart Appétit!"

    EQUIPMENT NEEDED

    Equipment To Make Bart's

    ❑ FOREMAN GRILL — IF you choose to have chicken thighs or chicken breasts in your yakisoba, you might grill them like I do on a Foreman Grill. If you choose to have seafood in your yakisoba dish, then skip this equipment item.

    ❑ LARGE "DEEP" FRYING PAN — We'll stir-fry our noodles and mix in other ingredients in this large, deep frying pan.

    ❑ MEDIUM -or- LARGE FRYING PAN — In one pan I'll sauté my salmon.

    ❑ MEDIUM -or- LARGE FRYING PAN — In another pan, I'll sauté my shrimp.

    ❑ CUTTING BOARD — Used to slice up some broccoli.

    ❑ SHREDDER — Used to slice up some carrots into little shredded slivers.

    ❑ SPATULA — Used to flip around your salmon in one pan and your shrimp in another pan.

    PASTA SERVING SPOON — This will be used to serve your yakisoba noodles once done.

    INGREDIENTS

    Ingredients To Make Bart's

    Yaki-Soba stir-fry noodles (NOTE: The best yakisoba noodles brand I've found are Maruchan Nama Yakisoba, which can be found at most Asian stores, such as 99 Ranch Market, Mitsuwa Marketplace, Tokyo Central, Marukai, etc. I've had a knock-off brand before found at Vons and Walmart, which wasn't too bad.

    Choose: Shrimp, salmon, imitation crab, chicken breasts, chicken thighs or just stay veggie (or toss in sautéed tofu cubes) and no meat!

    1 large carrot, peeled and thinly sliced

    4-5 stems of broccoli, slice thinly in tiny pieces

    ❑ 1 green onion, sliced (optional)

    ❑ 1 green onion, sliced (optional)

    1/4 cup of grapeseed oil

    ❑ Worcestershire sauce

    Soy sauce (2 tablespoons)

    ❑ Ponzu® (citrus-flavored) soy sauce (2 tablespoons)

    Green seaweed flakes (2 tablespoons; optional)

    Red pickled ginger (2 tablespoons; optional, but tasty)

    DIRECTIONS

    Here's how I go about whipping up this amazing yakisoba dish in a matter of minutes. EVERYONE who's ever dined with me at my house says this is the best yakisoba dish they've ever had. That's EVERYONE! All four people! ;-) I'M KIDDING! More like 400!!!! Hey, you be the judge and see what you think after you whip up this amazing Japanese noodle dish.

    STEP #1 (OPTIONAL)
    PREPARE, SLICE UP
    & SAUTÉ YOUR MEAT 

    ★ 1.1 I like sautéed shrimp and imitation crab in my yakisoba. Alternatively, you could also choose to sauté some salmon or grill up some chicken thighs or chicken breast meat to toss into your yakisoba dish. I've also sautéed tofu cubes in the past as well.

    ★ 1.2 → I also like to slice up all my meat in small bite-sized pieces for sautéing and serving in my yakisoba. 

    I get precooked shrimp and just take the tails off. If they're medium or large size shrimp, I might also cut each of them in half.

    Then, I'll  sauté the shrimp
    in grapeseed oil with a little
    Dash Southwest seasonings.

    I'll take about a 1/2 cup of
    imitation crab 
    and slice a piece
    of it into smaller pieces.

    Sauté imitation crab in a separate frying pan in with 3-4 tbsp grapeseed oil with Dash Southwest seasonings.

    STEP #2
    SLICE & GRATE
    YOUR VEGGIES

    ★ 2.1 → I like to keep my veggies simple when whipping up this yakisoba dish. Specifically, I like to taste more of the noodles, than most of the other ingredients. So, while I will have veggies in my yakisoba dish, I'll go light on them.

    ★ 2.2 → I'll only include sliced broccoli and thinly grated carrot slices in my yakisoba. I'll set them aside, until the noodles have been cooking in the frying pan for about 10 minutes. Then, when I toss in the veggies at the 10-minute mark, they'll steam up quickly and not overcook.

    ★ 2.3 → Slice up 1-2 cups of broccoli and grate one (1) peeled carrot to include in your yakisoba dish.

    STEP #3
    STIR-FRY YOUR
    YAKISOBA NOODLES

    ★ How many people are dining with you? 2-3? Use all 3 packages of noodles contained in one yakisoba noodle pack. Just one person? Then, typically one package of noodles will suffice.

    STEP #3.1

    Add oil, noodles and yakisoba dry seasonings to pan and stir for 10 minutes on MEDIUM heat.

    STEP #3.2

    Add Worcestershire sauce to noodles and stir evenly on MEDIUM heat for 10 minutes. 

    STEP #3.3

    Add veggies to noodles at 10 minute mark, mix and allow veggies to steam for 3 minutes.

    STEP #3.4

    Mix your noodles and veggies
    on MEDIUM for 3-5 minutes.

    STEP #3.5

    Mix in your meat and stir-fry it
    all on MEDIUM for 3-5 minutes.

    SERVING

    Time to serve and dine on this amazing yakisoba Asian noodle creation!

    What it looks like when you've got everything mixed in with your Yakisoba noodles. Yummm!!!

    Just serve it in a bowl, top it with red pickled ginger, a little touch of ponzu sauce and you're set!
