Terrific Teriyaki w/ Shirataki Noodles :: Chef Mark Cleveland @ Ready.Chef.GO! ::

Microwave high for 3 mins or 450 oven or 25 to 30 mins
2 servings per bag

7 Ounces Shirataki Noodles, rinsed & drained
(Opt) 1 Tablespoon Sesame Seeds (I used black sesame for contrast)
3 Cups Mixed Fresh Vegetables (I used baby bok choy, sweet baby peppers, zucchini, shishito peppers & Chinese chives)
1/2 Cup Bean Sprouts
 (Opt) 1/3-1/2 Cup Tofu, diced (I used fried tofu)
1/3 Cup Teriyaki Sauce

Edible flowers & Japanese spice blends like furikake & shichimi for garnish.

Sprinkle the noodles w/ the sesame seeds.  Toss all the other ingredients together.  Stir in the noodles.  Load everything into the bags.  Distribute the noodles attractively.  Seal the bag. 

REHEATING INSTRUCTIONS: Microwave high for 3 mins or 450 oven or 25 to 30 mins.  Let rest for 1 min before opening the bag.  Garnish w/ edible flower and Japanese seasonings.

NOTE:  Ready.Chef.GO! bags allow for excellent texture in the microwave & fast high heat cooking in the oven.  The results are always succulent & tender.  This example is rather exotic and thus a terrific opportunity to showcase new products you’d like to introduce to your customers.  Because it is exotic in flavor & ingredients, demo this product extensively.  Once tasted, it will sell well.  You can also make more main stream versions easily.  Sub any fresh or cooked ramen, bean based, or gf noodle option for the shirataki.  Sub green beans and scallions for the shishito & Chinese chives.  Sub cooked chicken or pork for the tofu. 
Shirataki noodles are rapidly becoming very popular.  Be the first grocer in your area to actively promote them. Get to know Shirataki!

POINT OF SALE DISPLAY:  Use colorful signage to draw guests to this exciting display.  Demo expansively.  Feature the words:  Teriyaki, Japanese, Shirataki Noodles, Gluten Free, Paleo, Low Carb, World Food, Asian Flair, etc.  Load the display w/ packets of shirataki noodles of all flavors & cuts.  Have recipe print outs available.  Display all sorts of Asian flavored meats (in Ready.Chef.GO! bags).  Add Asian vegetable blends, packaged fare, nori seaweed, sauces, condiments, etc.  Siriacha flavored everything.  Lots of great green & black tea drinks, boba, Asian beers, sake, seafood poke, more.  Add green tea desserts, Japanese mochi ice creams, etc.  Use this as an opportunity to market and showcase a whole new line of world food products to your clientele.
