Honey-seared salmon with coriander noodles

Personally, Emily and I LOVE noodle dishes and we also love salmon, and so when we found a recipe for a salmon noodle dish in one of Donna Hay’s cookbooks, we knew we had to give it a go!

For how yummy it is, this dish is actually surprisingly easy! It also isn’t very time-consuming which is another reason why it is an amazing dish!! We made this meal for dinner for our family and since we all like to eat a lot in our house, we made 1 and a half times what the recipe said, but I will just post the recipe that serves four people. We also doubled the amount of sauce to go with the noodles because after making the recommended portion, we decided it wasn’t enough – and this was defiantly the right decision.

This dish is called Honey-seared salmon with coriander noodles and is will definitely be made again in our house!!

Honey-seared salmon with coriander noodles
Serves: 4

550g salmon fillet
2 tbs honey
Cracked black pepper (optional)

Coriander noodles
200g egg noodles
½ cup coriander leaves
1/3 cup shredded mint leaves
1/3 cup basil leaves, halved
2 zucchini, shredded
1 tbs lime juice
2 tbs soy sauce
2 tbs honey

1. To make the coriander noodles, cook the noodles in boiling water for 3-5 minutes or until soft. Drain and rinse under cold running water until cool. Drain again.
2. Combine the noodles with the coriander, mint, basil, zucchini, lime juice, soy and honey.
3. Cut the salmon into 2cm wide strips and toss with the honey and the pepper. Be very careful not to break apart the salmon in this step.
4. Heat a non-stick frying pan over high heat. Cook the salmon for 1 minute on each side or until the honey is golden.
5. To serve, place the noodles on serving plates, top with the salmon and enjoy!!!

This recipe is soooooooooooooooo good and would have to be in my top 10!! We had leftovers and both Emily and I have been unable to stop ourselves from going back to the fridge to get some more!! We would highly recommend it to anyone who loves a good meal.

Keep cooking, Twins in the Kitchen.
