Salmon Teriyaki

I really do love Asian food.  Especially Chinese and Thai.  I have longed to perfect a handful of Asian dishes and think I’ve got this one pretty much down.  I’m a big fan of Ching He-Haung as I think she cooks wonderful Chinese food in a naturally healthy manner.  My recipes are very often based on hers, but of course I look to cut down on oil wherever possible to save valuable WeightWatchers ProPoints and up the veg content making it Slimming World friendly.

This teriyaki marinade works well not just with salmon but also with chicken, beef or prawns.  Marinade for a couple of hours if you can.  Tonight I had, er all of 5 minutes but the dish was still tasty. 

You’ll need for 2:
  • 2 salmon fillets, each 110g
  • 1 teaspoon Sesame or Groundnut oil
  • 1 pack of baby corn and mangetout, sliced
  • 1 pak Choi, sliced
  • Handful of chestnut mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 tbsp dark soy
  • 1 tbsp light soy
  • Squeeze of lemon or few drops of concentrated lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp Mirin (or you could use honey)
  • 1 tsp lazy chopped garlic
  • 1 tsp lazy chopped ginger
  • Pinch chilli flakes (optional)
  • 2 portions dried egg noodles, medium (60g each)

What to do:
Make up the marinade by combining the dark soy, mirin, garlic, lemon, ginger, chilli flakes.  Marinade the salmon for an hour or so if you can

The next few steps all happen simultaneously so get all your pans ready!

Simmer the egg noodles according to the packet instructions, drain and rinse in cold water until required.

Heat the sesame oil in a wok or large frying pan and fry the veggies on a high heat.

Heat a griddle pan and shake off any excess marinade and griddle for 3-4 minutes on each side depending on the thickness of the salmon.  You can also bake the salmon on a foil lined tray or grill.

Add any excess marinade to the veggies along with 1 tbsp light soy sauce.

Add the noodles to the veggies and toss to coat evenly.

Plate up with the noodles / veggies first, then top with the cooked salmon.
