Salmon with orange-ginger miso noodles

salmon with orange-miso-ginger noodles

I’ve made this salmon noodle bowl several times this summer. It’s a versatile dish – equally good served hot or cold.

The orange-ginger miso sauce is the star of the show, adding richness and depth to an otherwise simple meal.

Lately, I’ve been steaming my salmon, which makes it wonderfully moist.

Orange-ginger miso sauce is also excellent with chicken, grilled vegetables, or dressing a salad, on the off-chance there is any left over.

Salmon with orange-ginger miso noodles
(serves 4)

For the dressing:

  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp ginger, minced
  • juice and zest of a large orange (about 1/3 cup)
  • 1 Tb sesame oil
  • 1 Tb tahini
  • 1 Tb light miso
  • 1 Tb rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp soya sauce
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup sunflower oil

For the rest of the dish:

  • 100g green beans
  • 50g mange tout, shredded
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 4 vermicelli noodle nests
  • 3 green onions, sliced finely crosswise
  • a small bunch of coriander, chopped roughly
  • 4 salmon fillets
  1. In a food processor, whizz together all the dressing ingredients until smooth and creamy. Set aside.
  2. Bring a saucepan of water to the boil. Add the beans and cook for a minute, then add the mange tout and peas. Cook for a couple of minutes more, then drain, reserving the water.
  3. Bring the water to a boil again. Add the vermicelli noodles and cook for five minutes, or until tender.
  4. Drain the noodles very well. Transfer to a mixing bowl and toss with the coriander, green onions and half the dressing.
  5. Cook the salmon fillets. Arrange a portion noodles and green vegetables in individual bowls, topped with the cooked salmon.
  6. Drizzle with extra sauce and garnish with orange zest.

    I think Adam is a little biased on the like button, he gets to taste all your offerings and we just see the pics 😦 I have a lot of faith in his likes!

      Very true, and he is a great supporter of my cooking and the blog. He gets a fair few misses as well, like today’s failed attempt to make pizza rolls using crispy duck pancakes!
