Servings:  2

Ready in: 30 minutes 


Teriyaki Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon grated garlic
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce (tamari if gluten free)
  • 1.5 tablespoons maple syrup/honey
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil

Optional: 1 tsp sriracha or ½ tsp dried chilli flakes

The Bowls:

2 small skinless salmon fillets (about 200 g)

75 g dry soba noodles

1 head broccoli, cut into florets

2 medium carrots, sliced into thin coins on the diagonal

1 capsicum, deseeded and cut into strips

1 bundle bok choy, sliced

1/2 cup shelled edamame, thawed

4 spring onions, thinly sliced

1 lemon

    Place all sauce ingredients in a small jar, close the lid and shake to combine.

    Place salmon fillets in a shallow dish and use half the sauce to coat it, set aside for 5 mins.

    Cook soba noodles according to packet instructions, rinse and drain, then set aside.

    Spray a large non stick frying pan with oil and set over medium heat, add the salmon and cook for 2-3 mins each side for medium. Remove salmon from pan, and cover loosely with foil.

    Spray pan or wok with oil again, and stir fry the broccoli for 1-2 mins until bright green, then add carrots and capsicum. Stir fry for another 2-3 mins before adding bok choy, edamame and noodles into the pan.

    Add the remaining sauce and toss to heat through.

    Use a fork to flake the salmon into pieces then toss through the dish. Serve with a squeeze of lemon


    For a salad variation, follow instructions up to cooking salmon. Replace the vegetables with the following: 2 medium carrots, thinly sliced;  1 medium cucumber, thinly sliced; 1 capsicum, deseeded and cut into thin strips; 1 cup shelled edamame, thawed; 4 spring onions, thinly sliced. Combine the noodles and vegetables in a large bowl with enough sauce to coat lightly, before topping with salmon and a squeeze of lemon. You can also cook the sauce over a gentle heat for 2-3 mins and let cool before using as a dressing.
