shiratakishirataki
SHIRATAKISHIRATAKI

Ingredients

3 packs shirataki noodles

80g shiitake mushrooms

80g oyster mushrooms (shimeji, enoki, porcini etc.)

2 slice bacon or 60g pancetta, diced; 2 spring onions

2 cloves garlic; 2 tbsp cooking sake

2 tbsp Japanese traditional dark soy sauce

Black pepper;

Olive oil (to stir-fry)

Grated parmesan cheese

Nori seaweed, cut into thin strips

Shirataki noodles (also called konjac noodles) are very low in calories and almost zero fat. They are great for Japanese hotpot, stews or stir fries.

  • Rinse the shirataki noodles in clean water a few times and cut them up into more easily served lengths.
  • Boil the shirataki for 3 minutes in a salted water in a saucepan, then drain well.
  • Remove the stems of the mushrooms and slice finely. Cut the bacon into thin strips. Chop the garlic. Thinly slice the spring onion diagonally.
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan and stir-fry the the pancetta. When the pancetta becomes crispy, add the mushrooms and garlic then stir-fry until cooked. Season with pepper.
  • Put the shirataki into the pan and mix with the ingredients, then add the sake, soy sauce and stir-fry lightly to season.
  • Garnish with spring onion, nori seaweed and parmesan cheese when serving.
  • Ti​p: Shirataki come packaged in liquid and are ready to be used, but it is recommended to rinse them in clean water to remove the slightly “interesting” smell that accompanies the liquid.

10 reviews for Yutaka White Shirataki Noodles 375 g (Pack of 12)

  1. Louise

    Firstly, be SUPER careful opening the box with a box cutter!! The box is packed tightly so if you’re not careful, you’ll cut the packets (which I suspect is what happened to those complaining the packs were not intact).They arrived the next day (prime) and have until June 2022 before expiration.They do have a vaguely fishyesq smell out of the packet, but a good rinse in a sieve and boiled for 5 mins, gets rid of that completely.I have a vomiting illness that makes me pretty sensitive to bad smells and they didn’t come close to triggering it. Those claiming it’s overwhelming are either extremely sensitive to smells or just being overly dramatic. I know which one I’m leaning towards! I dry fried them after boiling then added them to chicken noodle soup. They were really good 😊👌The texture is slightly different to standard noodles, but not unpleasant.All in all, I can say very honestly, these are absolutely amazing as a virtually zero calorie noodle substitute. However, all the flavour comes from what you pair it with, so if you’re a bit of a rubbish cook, you’re not going to be impressed 😂

    Love this seller I’ll buy for him in the future for sure

    I’ve been on a LCHF (Low Carb High Fat) diet for 3 years now and have lost a ton of weight on it, which has stayed off (when I behave). The health benefits have been phenomenal.However, every now and again I have a hankering for some delicious noodles/pasta etc., which I fortunately manage to avoid most of the time.A web-forum (dietdoctor.com) recommended that I try shirataki noodles, as they are virtually carb free and you could eat as much as you wanted etc.The Yutaka deal looked pretty good and the general reviews were good, so we ordered the 12 pack to experiment a bit. Parcel arrived well packed (each sachet of noodles is in it’s own bag of liquid) and there were no leaks.I had read about the “bad smell” of fresh shirataki noodles so was prepared. To be honest, the smell was not as bad as I was expecting. If you’ve ever dealt with raw seafood etc., shirataki noodles are not going to be off-putting, but some people might not like it.Anyway, followed the advice and rinsed them really well in fresh water for 3-4 minutes then strained them in a colander. For my first attempt just to get a sense of the flavour/texture, I stir fried them in a non-stick wok on medium heat with no ingredients for about 5 minutes to drive off some of the water (as is recommended). After this, I stirred in about 30 grammes of butter (high fat diet, remember?) and some delicious grindy seasoning I get from Makro with salt, black pepper, chilli & garlic flakes. I stir fried the noodles on a gentle heat for about 4 minutes in this butter and seasoning and then served them up in a heated bowl.Shirataki noodles don’t carry much flavour themselves but seem to pick up most of their flavour from what they are cooked in. I found the butter seasoning mix with the noodles to be very tasty. A little of the cooked noodle flavour came through and it was pleasant, nothing like the earlier smell. The biggest thing for me was that I was getting that lovely noodle “bite” feel with the butter, garlic, salt and chilli. But zero carbs. My mind couldn’t quite put the two together properly so I still felt some “carb guilt”!!! The noodles are very filling. If you want to get a lot of fat in you with a nice “filler” that has zero nutritional value, I don’t think you can do much better than shirataki noodles at <0.1g of carbs per 100g of noodles!My next experiment was a quick-and-dirty vietnamese style pho soup, made with a beef stock tub. Once again, the shirataki noodles tasted great cooked in the pho (faux?) soup and the texture of the noodles was just right for me. However, I'll spend some more time on the stock next time and do it better with a proper recipe as I overspiced the broth and my wife DID NOT like that (yeah, I don't think Pho is meant to have 1/8th of a bottle of tabasco in it....!)I am pretty sure that these would double up reasonably well as a substitute for spaghetti in a bolognaise, with a little bit of imagination. We have used sliced mushrooms or julienne courgettes gently fried in butter as a pasta substitute in the past, and I am sure the shirataki noodles will be just as good, if not more "pasta like". One of the key ingredients to a good pasta sauce is good fatty beef mince and bacon lardons.... we usually get 70/30 beef (30% fat) from our local butcher who knows us well enough now - "those skinny people who eat lots of fat". The fat, seasoning and tomato/garlic sauce coating the noodles should be more than enough to flavour them nicely.Anyway - recommended. We will be buying these again.

    I swap these for pasta (think spaghetti) and rice (chop with scissors), not just noodles.They have zero flavour unless you mix them into your sauce, but they have practically zero carbs: technically 0.2g for a bag weighing 170g. (If you’re bothered, they also have almost no fat/protein hence 12 kcals per bag.) Basically they’re a way to fill you up. The nutrition label doesn’t mention fibre content, but similar products state 4.5g per 100g (the Konjac vegetable is known to be high fibre, but processing it into noodles will affect this).Unless you rinse THOROUGHLY, they have a distinct fishy smell from the preservative. I rinse then dry fry in a non-stick pan for a few minutes to heat/remove excess moisture; then mix into bolognaise, etc.

  5. Aliya Tokpayeva

    The best I’ve ever had. Was perfect, I ordered 30 packs & stored in a fridge. So quickly & convenient for soups & pan fry. Amazing!!! Great value

  6. Pavel

    You get good value for your money noddles taste ok and have a long shelf life time. Will be good idea if in the box will be another shape option not only noddles but rice or different thickness noddles so it will be even more versatile.

  7. Hayder I.

    These are perfect for keto diet – you need to rinse the noodles once or twice in a bowl of fresh water and then dump it into a boiling pot for 5mins or less, and they are perfect.

  8. Sylvia

    It is a great substitute to regular pasta

  9. George W

    As others have said, these are a good, filling, low-calorie food which I suspect are highly versatile. There are a few things you should know before ordering:Yes, the package and the water inside do smell a little fishy. As a lifelong vegetarian, fish is something I’ve always hated the smell of, however, the fishy smell from these noodles is not the horrible pungent smell that you get from slightly old fish, it’s definitely on the more pleasant end of the spectrum. In any case, if you drain and rinse the noodles in a sieve for a minute most of the fishy taste/smell will go. The noodles themselves (once rinsed) have quite a neutral taste and the texture when cooked (instructions below) is quite similar to those “straight to wok” noodles you buy from the supermarket (these also come in a pouch with liquid).I would say that the noodles do have a slightly fishy taste to them but it’s by no means unpleasant and if you’re going to be cooking them in a flavourful sauce or stock then you can probably mask this quite effectively.My recipe:1 Pack Yutaka Shirataki noodles10g of  JustIngredients Essential Mixed Vegetables 1/2 teaspoon of  MONOSODIUM GLUTAMATE  (Yes I know some people have an aversion to MSG, but it’s a fantastic ingredient to add some umami “oomph” – you can leave it out if you like.5g of  Marigold Swiss Vegetable Bouillon A sprinkle of dried chilli flakes.Drain and rinse noodles, add all ingredients into a small saucepan and top up with ~200ml of boiling water. I didn’t measure precisely, just used enough to cover most of the noodles. If you’re a fan of more of a “noodle soup” with lots of broth then you could of course add more water, or cook as per my instructions and then add more boiling water back in at the end.Simmer for around 5 minutes. Liquid should have reduced somewhat.Heat a small, non-stick frying pan on a medium-high heat.Pour noodles into frying pan (with no oil) and fry until water has reduced to your desired consistency.That’s it!The end result is quite similar to a  Nong Shim Shin Instant Noodle Cup , but only has about 50kcals total (~30kcal of which is from the dried veg). All of this is at a total cost of about £1.35 too so not that much more than the instant noodle cups but loads healthier because of the low-cal noodles. You could of course experiment with flavourings, add more spices etc. but I wanted to keep it really simple initially so that I can quickly and easily prepare them to take to work with me for lunch.

    I am absolutely in love with this. Yes it has a different smell when you first open the pack but all gone once you drain and wash. There’s plenty in one pack- enough for one meal (once you bulk it up with a choice of your protein and vegetables like you would with any type of noodles) and keeps you full for a very long time. I replaced it with my dry egg noodles and will never look back. I’ve just placed another order.
