¼ pound steamed or dry Chinese noodles
1 ripe medium mango, cubed (1 cup)
1 cup sliced onion
1 cup sliced red bell pepper
¾ pound peeled shrimp

3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons chopped fresh ginger or 2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 teaspoons cornstarch
Several drops hot sauce
4 teaspoons sesame oil, divided use
1. Place water for noodles on to boil. Cut mango into cubes. Place onion, red pepper, shrimp, snow peas, mango and cashew nuts on a cutting board in order of use. Mix soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, ginger, garlic, cornstarch and hot sauce together in a small bowl.
2. When water comes to a boil, add noodles. Boil two minutes, drain and rinse under cold water. Set aside. Heat 2 teaspoons sesame oil in a wok or skillet over high heat. When oil is smoking, add the onion and red pepper. Stir-fry two minutes. Add the shrimp and snow peas and stir-fry one minute. Add the mango, cashews and sauce and stir-fry, tossing all of the ingredients together for one minute. Remove to a plate. Add remaining 2 teaspoons oil and the noodles. Toss for one minute. Divide noodles in half and place on dinner plates. Spoon shrimp, mango and vegetables over noodles.
