Salmon and Soba Noodle Salad – LEAH ITSINES

Salmon and Soba Noodle Salad

Have you tried Soba noodles before? They're a delicious buckwheat noodle and go amazingly in salads and in 'pho' type broths! They're a Japanese noodle that has a mild nutty flavour. 

Serves 1
Prep time: 10 minutes 
Cook time: 10 minutes 
Ingredients:
115g salmon fillet, uncooked 
⅔ cup soba noodles, uncooked

⅓ cup edamame beans, deshelled 
½ small red capsicum, sliced thinly 
2 spring onion stalks, sliced thinly
1 small carrot, julienne 
3-4 mint leaves (optional)

Directions:

  1. Flavour the salmon with a pinch of salt and pepper. 
  2. Cook noodles according to packet instructions & set aside. 
  3. On a hot pan, heat a small splash of olive oil and cook salmon to your liking (I like mine super cooked for a salad like this!) 
  4. Add all ingredients under "dressing" into a bowl and mix well. 
  5. In a large serving bowl, mix the cooked noodles, snow peas, carrots, edamame beans, capsicums, spring onion, carrot, mint and coriander. Pour over dressing and mix well.
