One of my favourite types of food is Asian! I just love the mix of flavours and how fresh it tastes! It can also be really quick and easy to make. This dish is something I tend to make most weeks and it only takes about 20min. I don't always use salmon, sometimes it may be sea bass, tofu, or organic chicken. So if you're a vegan or vegetarian, you can do exactly the same, but use organic tofu :-)

Serves 2

  • 2 Wild Alaskan salmon fillets

Marinade-

  • 1 tbsp tamari
  • 1 inch ginger - peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic - finely chopped
  • 1 lemon - juiced
  • 2 tsp organic sesame oil

Noodles-

  • 100g rice noodles
  • 2 spring onions - thinly sliced
  • 1 inch ginger - peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic - finely chopped
  • 1 red chilli - finely chopped
  • 1 red pepper - sliced
  • 10 florets broccoli - halved
  • 2 large handfuls spinach
  • 2 tbsp tamari
  • 1 tsp fish sauce
  • 1/2 lime - juiced
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 handful fresh coriander 
  • 1 tsp organic honey (optional)
  1. Mix all the marinade ingredients in a bowl and place the salmon in the bowl. Spoon over the marinade and then leave to sit for at least 20min.
  2. Cook the noodles (some rice noodles you just have to soak in hot water! Nice and simple!) and leave to sit in a bowl of cold water.
  3. Heat a frying pan and add a small amount of coconut oil. When hot, add the salmon fillets, skin side down. Cook for about 4 min, then flip over for about 3 min. Add the marinade and cook for a minute. Put the cooked fish to one side with foil covering it to keep warm.
  4. If you want crispy skin, put the grill on a relatively high heat. Peel the skin off the fillets, and place them on a tray. Pop it under the grill for about 3 min, then flip to the other side for 3 min.
  5. Heat a small amount of coconut oil in a wok and add the spring onion, garlic, chilli and ginger and stir fry for about 2 min. Then add the broccoli, red pepper, tamarin, fish sauce, honey (if using) and lime juice and mix. Add the cooked noodles and mix well, so all the noodles are covered.
  6. Once the broccoli is cooked (but still crunchy), add the spinach, coriander and sesame seeds. Mix until the spinach has slightly wilted.
  7. Remove from the heat. Get 2 plates or bowls and divide the noodles between the two. Place the salmon on top and sprinkle with more coriander and sesame seeds.
  8. Enjoy :-)
