Ingredients

  • 2 x 225 gram portions/ 2 x 0.5 lb. portions Fresh Salmon
  • 3 tablespoons Light Soy
  • 2 teaspoons Black Sesame Seeds
  • 1 tablespoon White Sesame Seeds
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon Mild chilli paste
  • 1 teaspoon crushed garlic
  • 2 Fresh shallot
  • 200 grams / 7 oz. wholemeal ready made wok noodles (I use Wokka brand)
  • Dried Shallots to garnish

Instructions

  • Heat frypan on medium heat and pat salmon dry with paper towel
  • Place salmon flat side down in frypan with a lid over and cook for about 10 minutes
  • Make the chilli soy glaze: in a small measuring cup, place 2 tablespoons of light soy, 1 teaspoon chilli paste, 1 teaspoon of garlic paste, 1 teaspoon each of white and black sesame seeds. Stir to combine.
  • Turn salmon over and cook the other side. On flat side up of salmon, using a glazing brush (I have a silicone one), brush on the glaze. Also brush on the sides
  • Leave salmon to cook on the second side for about 6 to 7 minutes, depending on how well done you like it.
  • Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, add the noodles, 1 tablespoon of light soy and 1 teaspoon each of the black and white sesame seeds. Heat through and stir until all combined. Ad in some chopped shallots at the end for colour.
  • Once salmon is done, remove from heat. Place noodles in bottom of bowl and lay salmon on top with some more fresh shallot, and dried shallot if you have it.
