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

Wash produce before use


Marinate the seafood

Heat the oven to 400°F.

  • Grate or peel and finely chop the ginger.
  • Finely chop, press, or grate the garlic.
  • Pat the seafood dry with a paper towel (if using shrimp or scallops, rinse and drain, then pat dry); season the seafood lightly with salt and pepper.

In a large bowl, stir together the lo soi base, ginger, and garlic. Add the seafood and toss to coat. Let stand while you prepare the romanesco and the soba noodles.


Prep and roast the romanesco

Bring a medium sauce pot of water to a boil for the soba noodles.

  • Cut the romanesco into 1-inch florets, discarding any leaves or thick stalks.

On a sheet pan, toss the romanesco with 1 to 2 tablespoons oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Spread in an even layer and roast, stirring halfway through, until the romanesco is tender and lightly browned, 16 to 20 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the soba noodles and the seafood.


Cook the soba noodles

To the pot of boiling water, add the soba noodles and cook until just tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Return to the pot, add the lemon-tahini dressing, and toss to coat; season to taste with salt and pepper.


Prep the garnish; cook the seafood

  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions for garnish.

On a 2nd sheet pan, place the seafood (skin side down for the barramundi). Drizzle 1 to 2 teaspoons marinade from the bowl over the seafood. Roast until the tuna is lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes for medium; the shrimp or scallops are firm and opaque, 3 to 5 minutes; or the barramundi is opaque and flaky, 10 to 12 minutes. 


Transfer the soba noodles to individual bowls and top with the romanesco and seafood. Garnish with the scallions and as much garlicky sesame seed blend as you like and serve any remaining blend on the side.
