A little Asian fusion for a change? What did you think? Leave your links here.

Couldn’t bring myself to add the tomato puree and I am so happy I didn’t…delicious. http://www.simplelivingeating.com/2013/01/french-fridays-with-dorie-shrimp-and.html
We enjoyed…but won’t repeat! I seem to be in the minority!!! I used diced tomatoes instead of the puree:
And by that I mean it didn’t work. It wasn’t BAD but it was weird.
Not a repeat….
What is that saying? If you can’t say something good, don’t say anything at all?
I made this once before, but couldn’t remember much about it. The angry black X in permanent marker in the corner of the page, in conjunction with me running around like a crazy person trying to get food ready for my son’s birthday party tomorrow was enough to put me off of making it again. I checked the backfiles of my old blog to try to refresh my memory of it, so this post is from May, 2011 (you remember, when the Rapture was supposed to happen. Thus the references to it.)
Sorry I’ve been lousy for the past several weeks. I’ll be back on board full time next week!
My heart was ready to fall in love, but somehow love never came…
This was a weird one. We agreed that we liked the shrimp and mushrooms. Could have done without the noodles, though.
Just couldn’t get on board with this one. It makes me wonder — have any of you ever attended a dinner party where “orange” was the theme for the color of the food? White, maybe. Brown? A steak, pommes frites and brownies. But, orange?
I would say orange should be reserved for the Dali Lama only.
Seems like everyone else kinda disliked this one but I thought it was pretty good…
Not so much…
Thanks to all for the tip to leave out the tomato puree-with a few tweaks this was a nice dinner for us;-)
I agree with Mardi, just plain weird.
It looks great in the bowl- but it was all wrong. I am happy with my photos though! Looking forward to next week. http://kitchenconundrum.com/2013/01/shrimp-and-cellophane-noodles-french-fridays-with-dorie/
Used the same ingredients less the tomato but went rouge–Dorie’s method did not click for me
Left out the tomato purée and used some Sriracha sauce instead…
Can’t love em all.
I ended up liking this one, but used suggestions from the group and used way less tomato puree.
I thought this was good, actually, albeit decidedly not French. :)
SORRY! Not a keeper!!
I made something a bit more interesting with it ….
5 Spice Powder rocks! Noodles, shrimp and sesame oil – yummy! Tomato…no thanks.
better than I thought, but not a real keeper…..
No tomato and a big hit:
Looked like not many were keen on this recipe. I must’ve changed it too much that it didn’t actually taste all that bad! Mine was vegan, naturally.
We liked it! Don’t think I will make it again…but it was o.k.

[...] I’m glad I tried this but this is certainly not going on my “make-again” list. It was full of flavor and surprise but just not amazing – and the tomato sauce with the sesame oil flavored noodles wasn’t weird at all either, I was actually pretty thrilled with it! This didn’t go over too well with the other Doristas, but to see how it went over for them, click here. [...]
