Inspired by a viral cooking video, this ingenious way to prepare a dish of noodles is perfect for anyone who is short on time but enjoys Asian flavors. It’s easy on the pocket and uses mostly pantry ingredients.



Special equipment:
a deep-fry thermometer
  1. Heat the avocado oil in a small saucepan over medium heat until hot (350 degrees F), 2 to 3 minutes. Meanwhile, combine the scallions, garlic paste, ginger, red pepper flakes and salt in a heatproof bowl. Stir well.
  2. Remove the oil from the heat and carefully add to the mixture. Stir to combine and set aside. Let the flavors sit to combine for 20 minutes. (This mixture can be made ahead of time, cooled completely and stored in an airtight jar at room temperature for up to 2 days.)
  3. Cook the linguine in a large pot of salted water until al dente. Drain and add the hot noodles to a large bowl.
  4. Add the flavored oil, honey, soy sauce and sesame oil. Toss well to combine. Add more soy or salt to taste.
  5. Garnish with sliced scallions and sriracha to taste.
