Mill City Cooks: Cold Soba Noodle Ramen with Sesame, Trout and & Greens

For the July 22 Mill City Cooks demo, Chef Jenny Breen created a Cold Soba Noodle Ramen with Sesame Sauce, Salmon & Greens.  In lieu of salmon, Jenny used fresh trout from Star Prairie Trout Farm (since Matt and his boys from Wild Run Salmon are currently fishing for salmon to bring to the Market later in the season).

To start, Jenny cooked the noodles - which only takes a few minutes because they are super fresh from Dumpling & Strand.

Next, the trout gets poached for 2 to 3 minutes, and then it's skinned, flaked and set aside to cool.

The recipe calls for mixed baby greens, baby bok choy, cucumber, tomato and scallions. Jenny demonstrated how to chop the veggies so they're not only pleasing to look at, but easy to eat.

Next, the sauce. It's made with creamy peanut butter, orange juice, rice vinegar, lime juice, grated orange peel, soy sauce (or tamari, if you prefer), fresh ginger, garlic, dried crushed red pepper and sunflower or pumpkin seed oil.
