Sesame-crusted Salmon with Noodles


I know I rarely post fish recipes, and that's simply because I don't eat much fish. It's not that I dislike it, but I never crave it and there's just so much food I prefer... anyway - once in a while I try to make an effort to cook fish, in part because Titus really likes it. He wasn't very fond of the sesame seeds in this dish, though...

Sesame-crusted Salmon with Noodles
serves 3

3 portions salmon fillet, skinless
1 lime, zest and juice
1 + 1 tbsp light Japanese soy sauce
fresh ginger, about 5 cm, finely grated
1 tbsp sweet chili sauce
sesame seeds
125 g egg noodles
250 g mixed veggies (I used a frozen wok mix)
100 g snow peas
oil for frying

Stir together lime zest, lime juice, 1 tbsp soy sauce, fresh ginger, and sweet chili sauce. Coat the salmon pieces in this, and then in sesame seeds. Save the marinade!

Bring a pot of water to boil, and cook the noodles according to the instructions on the packet. Don't over cook them! Add the snow peas for the last minute, then drain and rinse in cold water.

Fry the salmon in oil on medium heat, about 3-4 minutes on each side. The sesame seeds burn fairly easily, so watch the heat.

Heat more oil in a large frying pan or wok, and cook the vegetables for a few minutes. Add the noodles and snow peas and pour over the reserved marinade and the remaining tablespoon of soy sauce. Stir well for a minute or so, and then serve, with the salmon on top.
