Salmon, vegetables & noodles
Salmon, vegetables & noodles in sweet chilli & soy sauce
1. Start by boiling the kettle and putting your egg noodles (1 sheet from pack of dried noodles) and your vegetables in a pan. You can have whichever vegetables you have/want and you can have as many as you want, if you’re having a lot it might be easier to cook them separately from the noodles, but it’s personal preference.
2. Add the boiling water to the pan so that the veg & noodles are mostly covered and bring to a rapid simmer over a medium/high heat until the vegetables are tender (test with a fork) and the noodles are cooked through. Check your noodle packet instruction to give you an idea of time, but it’s usually 4-6 mins. While they’re cooking make sure that your noodles aren’t sticking together, you can use a fork or tongs to break them up.
3. While the noodles are cooking add your oil to a pan, start with 1 tbsp, you can always add more if you need it. While this is heating sprinkle you salmon all over with salt and pepper and put it in the pan skin side up.
4. Once it’s in the pan shake it a little just to stop it from sticking to the bottom.
5. As the salmon cooks you’ll be able to see a horizontal line forming as the fish turns opaque and becomes a lighter pink. Once this line is roughly half way flip the fish over and shake the pan slightly, you may need to add more oil to stop the fish sticking. The thickness of your fillet depends upon how long it’ll take to cook, but you want the fish to be light pink and just opaque all the way through.
6. Once the salmon is done transfer it onto your plate. Once they’re done, drain your noodles and put them back into the pan they cooked in, gradually add small amounts of soy sauce and sweet chilli sauce and keep mixing it through and tasting the noodles until you’re happy with the flavour. Soy can be salty so this is the best way to ensure it’s to your liking, once you’re happy transfer the veg and noodles onto the plate with your salmon and enjoy!
7. You may wish to add soy or sweet chilli (or both!) to your salmon for more flavour, but this is optional.
8. If you want to serve this for more people you just need more vegetables and noodles and a salmon fillet per person.
