Salmon teriyaki with noodles and pak choi

Pak choi is such a delicious versatile vegetable, add it to stir fry’s, broths or just simply steam it! It’s the perfect vegetable for week nights as it’s bursting with nutrients and quick to prepare! This meal can be ready in under 30 minutes if you prepare your sauce ahead of time, I advise making the sauce Sunday evening as it will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.

Ingredients

Serves 4

4 salmon fillets

4 heads of pak choi

4 nests of noodles

Teriyaki sauce (see recipe below)

2 garlic cloves

Olive oil for cooking

Sea salt

 

Method:

1. Prepare the teriyaki sauce and leave to cool.

2. Preheat oven at 180 c and line a try with baking parchment.

3. Place the salmon fillets on tray and spoon two tables spoons of teriyaki sauce over each fillet (reserve a little sauce to stir through the noodles), place in oven and cook for 20 minutes.

4. Put the noodles on to boil, cook according to packet instructions, usually 7-9 minutes.

5. Peel and grate garlic and prepare the pak choi , finely chopping the stems and leaves. Add the garlic to a frying pan with a little oil and a pinch of salt, fry for 2-3 minutes, then add the pak choi stems, frying for a further 3-4 minutes. Add the pak choi leaves once the stems have softened, cook for 2-3 minutes.

6. Drain off the noodles and stir 3-4 tablespoons through the noodles before plating.
