The trick to Shirataki is to not be put off by the smell when you open the package….there is a fishy-ness to it. Just dump it into a strainer and rinse immediately which takes care of it.
Prep time for this meal is about 2 minutes, which makes it a fabulous lunch when you are totally famished. AND, the Shirataki has a pretty long shelf life, so when it comes on sale you can stock up. Besides being low carb, the noodles are also low calorie when compared to pasta. Only 20 per serving !
