Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Pickle the radishes and carrots

  • Thinly slice the radishes.

In a medium bowl, combine the radishes, carrots, and Asian quick-pickle brine. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal. 

2

Prep the “zoodles” and cabbage

  • Lay the zucchini flat. Trim and discard the round end. Holding the stem end secure, using a peeler, shave the zucchini lengthwise into thin ribbons. Pat dry with a paper towel.
  • Cut away any core from the cabbage; thinly slice the cabbage.

3

Prep and cook your protein

  • Steak, chicken, or pork strips: Cut a small corner from the packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer the meat to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
  • Shrimp: Rinse and drain the shrimp. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. 

In a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add your protein and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes for regular shrimp; 3 to 4 minutes for jumbo shrimp, steak, or pork; and 5 to 6 minutes for chicken. Stir in the lemongrass paste and cook until fragrant and your protein is cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate and season to taste with salt and pepper. Do not clean the pan.

4

Make the warm vinaigrette

  • Using a slotted spoon, remove the pickled vegetables from the brine, reserving the brine. 

In the same pan used for your protein, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil over low heat. Stir in the reserved brine and cook until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat. 

Serve

Transfer the “zoodles” and cabbage to individual bowls and drizzle with as much warm vinaigrette as you like. Top with your protein and as many pickled vegetables as you like. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds and serve any remaining pickled vegetables on the side.
