Thai inspired salmon and noodles

Thai inspired salmon and noodles

This a really simple, light and refreshing mid-week supper for 2. Just 15-20 minutes preparation and cooking time in total.

Ingredients

Salmon:
2 x salmon fillets
2 teaspoons Thai Green Curry paste
2 tablespoons oil
lime wedges to serve

Coconut & coriander noodles:
100g rice stick noodles
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon lime juice
4 spring onions, chopped
3/4 cup of chopped fresh coriander leaves
1 long red chilli (sliced)
100ml coconut milk
1 tablespoon fish sauce

Method

  1.  Mix the oil with the curry paste and brush over the entire surface of the salmon fillets.
  2. Place the noodles in a heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Stand for 10 minutes until tender then drain and rinse.
  3. Heat grill to high. Grease a baking tray, then sit the salmon, flesh-side up, on the tray. Grill for 5 mins, until the salmon is cooked through and the edges are starting to blacken.
  4. Add sugar to lime juice until it dissolved. 
  5. Pour lime juice & sugar mixture over noodles and toss with onions, coriander, chilli, coconut milk and fish sauce until well combined.
  6. Divide the noodles between 2 plates and place salmon fillet on top.
  7. Decorate with a few fresh coriander leaves and 2 lime wedges.
  8. Serve with a fresh green salad or gently steamed mange tout.

Top tips: if you are not a fan of salmon, this would work equally well with any fish fillet or chicken breasts – just adjust cooking times to suit. You can swap the red chilis with green if you like it a little hotter: the red just look prettier in the noodle mix!
