Crab and snow pea Somen

Presenting what i have been eating the entire weekend...crab somen!
Various reasons...the top one being that i cooked too much....and was too busy/ stressed with assignments to ask friends over to share it..
it's great for bringing to potlucks i reckon...cos it's a cold dish and very easy to make...takes less than 30 minutes in total, including washing up!

400g somen
175 g canned crab meat, brine reserved
150 g snow pea sprouts, trimmed
6 green onions, chopped finely
1 tbs toasted white sesame seeds
1 can corn kernels (optional)
handful bonito flakes (optional)

1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup rice vinegar
3 tbs soy sauce
3 tbs sugar
1 tbs sesame oil
brine from crab

combine in screw top jar and shake well until sugar dissolves.

serves 6

1. cook somen in large saucepan of boiling water until just tender, drain and rinse noodles under cold water. Cut noodles with scissors to make them more manageable.

2. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl. Add dressing. Toss. Serve chilled and garnish with bonito flakes.
