Atlantic Salmon with Wasabi Soy Dressing

IMG_8532

I cannot believe I have only been eating salmon for 2 years, what have I been missing out on!?!I love asian flavours with salmon,  it keeps the flavour fresh and lets the salmon shine. The soba noodle salad can be served warm or cold and you could use  salmon with the skin on. This dish would also work well with brown rice or quinoa.



Wasabi Salmon with Noodles



Ingredients


2 spring onions
4 x pieces of salmon
2 tsp oil
250 g somen or soba noodles, cooked per packet instructions

asian greens, steamed

Dressing
1/2 to 3/4 tsp of wasabi paste
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar or sake
2 tbsp mirin
1 tbsp lime juice
2 tsp brown sugar
1 tbsp oil
2 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp black  and white sesame seeds


Method

  1. Finely slice your spring onion length ways and place in a bowl of cold iced water and set aside.
  2. Place all dressing ingredients in a jar and shake to combine.
  3. Heat the oil in a fry pan and cook salmon to your liking.
  4. To serve, place noodles on a plate, top with salmon, pour over dressing, sprinkle with sesame seeds and garnish with the curled spring onion.

*Limes can be quite expensive, I try to buy mine in bulk whenever possible and then freeze. Just microwave 30 secs and slice in half till ready to use.
