How To Cook Salmon And Noodles?

Here are the step by step instructions for this salmon and chilli lime noodles recipe:

You may want to use a julienne slicer for the carrots and bell peppers to get long, thin strips like in the photo. If you don’t have one, you can use a regular vegetable peeler or just chop them into small pieces. Here is a good quality slicer from Amazon.

Step Five: Prepare Noodle Sauce

Begin preparing your noodle sauce. In a small bowl, combine the lime juice, fish sauce, chili garlic sauce, garlic, Truvia granulated sugar, and water. Start with one Tablespoon of fish sauce and adjust as needed to desired taste.

Step Six: Bake the Salmon

Once the salmon is finished marinating, put on the foil-lined baking sheet, pour the marinade on top of the salmon, and cover it all with foil. Bake for 12 minutes.

Step Seven: Boil the Shirataki Noodles

In a large pan, get water boiling for the noodles. Then boil the noodles as per package instructions.

Step Eight: Rinse, Drain, and Parboil Noodles

Noodles are packaged in liquid. The Instructions were to rinse, then drain, then parboil for 2-3 minutes, and drain again.

Step Nine: Broil the Salmon

Once the salmon is done baking, remove the top layer of foil and then stick it back in the oven to broil for 3-5 minutes. This will slightly char the salmon and give it a sticky sauce. All ovens are different so keep a close eye to ensure it doesn’t burn.

Variations

  • Teriyaki Salmon Noodles: If you’re looking for a different flavor, try using a teriyaki sauce on your salmon fillets and noodles.
  • Sesame Oil: Add some sesame oil as a replacement for the avocado oil.

Substitutions

  • Soba Noodles: Switch the Shirataki noodles for soba noodles or ramen noodles if you prefer.
  • Light Soy Sauce: Switch your dark soy sauce for light soy sauce to help reduce salt intake.
  • Chopped Spring Onions: Try adding chopped spring onion in place of the cilantro for additional flavor.

Storage Instructions

  • Separate Components: If possible, separate the salmon, noodles, and any accompanying vegetables or sauce before storing. This will prevent the noodles from becoming soggy and the salmon from overcooking.
  • Refrigeration: Place the components in airtight containers and store them in the refrigerator. Cooked salmon and noodles can typically be stored safely in the fridge for up to 3-4 days.

What To Serve With This Recipe?

Notes

You can use a different bell pepper if you want less carbs as red is slightly higher. Or it can be omitted entirely.

Using a garlic crusher and a julienne slicer speeds up the prep process.

When turning on broiler, it should be preheated at least 1 minute before sticking the salmon back in the oven.
