Rice Noodles with Snow Peas, Scallops and Sweet Coconut-Miso Sauce

Thin strips of carrot add noodle-like interest to this Asian-inspired dish.

Serves 4

1 can coconut milk, in BPA-free can
2 tsp. fish oil
1 small garlic clove, minced
1 tsp. honey
3 Tbs. grated ginger
2 tsp. sweet white miso
10 oz. dried rice noodles
1 Tbs. coconut oil
1 medium carrot, peeled
2 cups snow peas, cut 1/4-inch thick on a strong diagonal
1 pound bay scallops
1 tsp. tamari
4 tsp. black sesame seeds
2 Tbs. minced cilantro

1. In a medium pot, whisk together coconut milk, fish oil, garlic and honey. Holding grated ginger over pot, squeeze ginger to extract juices into pot. Discard solids. Cook coconut mixture over medium-low, uncovered, until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in miso.

2. While sauce is cooking, in a medium pan, bring water to a boil. Add rice noodles and cook according to package directions. Drain well.

3. While noodles are cooking melt coconut oil in a medium pan over medium heat. Holding carrot over pan, and using a vegetable peeler, shave off thin strips of carrot, rotating carrot as you shave.

4. Add snow peas and toss to coat. Cook for 2 minutes, until carrot is just tender. Add scallops, toss to coat with oil, and sprinkle with tamari. Cook, stirring frequently, for 2 to 3 minutes, until just done.

5. Drain noodles well and divide between four serving dishes. Top with scallop mixture and coconut cream. Sprinkle with black sesame seeds and cilantro, and serve immediately.
