Author Notes

These noodles are my lightened-up version of a David Chang dish. This sauce would probably make tree bark taste good, and would be a great addition to almost anything: rice, salad, fish -- whatever! I chose to pair it with some tofu and fresh yakisoba noodles. —Alexandra V. Jones

Test Kitchen Notes

This is a solid, versatile base recipe that I think you can expand on in a lot of different directions. I like a bit of heat, so I added chopped jalapeño and additional lime juice to the sauce -- and Sriracha on top for good measure. The flavors are fresh, vibrant, and balanced, and the entire process is far too simple for something so delicious. The more I ate, the more I was hooked. I literally licked the bowl. I wish I was kidding. —meredithbw
