Teriyaki Rice and Noodle Mix

When it comes to flavor in a meal it's all about balance. A stir fry with a flavorful sauce pairs perfectly with plain rice, while broiled fish needs something with a little more kick. I am getting a little tired of potatoes with my fish so I needed to come up with a rice that goes nicely with mild tasting fish and seafood.

This dish is very similar to the packaged Lipton Sidekick 'Teriyaki Rice' but without all of the chemicals.

Teriyaki rice and noodle mix

2/3 cup uncooked rice
1/3 cup very thin noodles (spaghettini or angel hair) broken in 1 inch pieces
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon garlic flakes
1/2 teaspoon onion flakes
1/2 teaspoon chives
1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon ginger powder
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes

What else you'll need

2 cups water
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce

Bring water to a boil in a saucepan and stir in mix. Add oil and soy sauce and simmer with the lid covered, stirring occasionally until rice and noodles are tender.

Fluff with a work when done.

I served this rice the other night with steamed broccoli and my tempura battered shrimp mix. It was an especially big hit with our daughter, who loves all forms of rice (and noodles).

This rice goes well with any type of broiled or fried seafood as well as with grilled chicken or pork. You can also add bits of chicken, pork or shrimp and vegetables to make it a complete meal.
