This Asian salmon and noodles have always been my top weeknight meal pick for years. Not only that this is so easy and quick to make, but this also makes an awesome choice for people like me who enjoys fish. This dish is an all-in-one meal with perfectly broiled salmon, noodles, mushrooms, and snow peas with a simple Sriracha flavoured honey-sesame sauce.
5 green onions chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
¼ c. soy sauce
1 tbsp sesame seeds
10 button mushrooms, sliced, or 1 Portobello mushroom, sliced
¼ c. honey
¼ c. chicken stock
2 c. snow peas end trimmed (about 60 snow peas)
1 tsp Sriracha sauce, substitute with any other hot sauce if you don’t have Sriracha
½ pound pasta preferably Fettuccine (half a pound)
2 tbsp sesame oil
1 lb salmon
2 tbsp cooking oil
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp honey
salt & pepper
How to make Asian salmon and noodles
Step 1: In a large frying pan, heat the cooking oil over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add the chopped green onions and sesame seeds to the pan and saute for about 2 to 3 minutes. Then, add the sliced mushrooms and continue to cook for 2 minutes more. Take the pan off the heat when done and add the soy sauce, honey, chicken stock, sesame oil, Sriracha. Stir well.
Step 2: Boil the snow peas in another pan for about 3 to 5 minutes or until tender but still crispy. Drain when done.
Step 3: Following the package directions, cook the pasta in a large pot with boiling water until al dente. Drain the pasta when done.
Step 4: To the vegetables and sauce, add the drained snow peas and pasta. Toss and cook over medium-low heat until heated through.
Step 5: Start heating a large skillet over high heat. Generously season the salmon on the non-skin side with salt and pepper. Drizzle oil into the hot skillet. Add the salmon, skin-side up, and sear for about 4 minutes, undisturbed.
Step 6: Flip the salmon after 4 minutes and continue to cook the other side over high heat for about 3 minutes.
Step 7: Whisk the honey with soy sauce. To soften the honey, slightly heat in the microwave or stovetop. Brush the salmon with it and broil for about 3 minutes. Midway through broiling, brush the salmon with more sauce if desired. Broil the salmon until it is a bit charred.
Step 8: Tent the salmon if the middle is a little undercooked for a couple of minutes before serving.
