Sesame Salmon with Soba Noodles
6 ounces soba noodles
¼ cup low sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger, divided use
24 ounces salmon fillets, skinless
¼ cup sesame seeds
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
3 scallions, coarsely chopped
1) Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the soba noodles and cook until al dente, about 5 minutes. Drain the noodles, transfer them to
a medium bowl and keep warm.
2) Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, lemon juice and half the ginger. Lightly brush the fish on both sides with a little of the soy ginger mixture and then dredge in the sesame seeds.
3. Heat the vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet. Add the salmon to the pan, and cook over moderately high heat until the sesame seeds are golden and the fish is just cooked through, about 5 minutes per side.
4) Add the sesame oil, scallions, the remaining ginger and the remaining soy-ginger mixture to the soba noodles and toss to combine. Transfer the noodles to serving bowls, top with the salmon fillets and serve.
