This week's French Fridays with Dorie challenge is for Shrimp and Cellophane Noodles. According to Dorie, it's fusion cuisine, but based on feedback from several of our fellow Doristas, we opted to leave out the pureed tomatoes. To keep the flavor, we tossed in a diced, seeded tomato instead.

Food should smell and look appealing to stimulate our appetites. The shrimp smelled and tasted great, but we couldn't get past the look and texture of the noodles. These noodles were clear and sticky and reminded me of jellyfish tentacles.
We loved the Chinese Five Spice mix and we would like to try a variation of this with Lo Mein noodles instead.
Win some; lose some.
