As you may have noticed, I love spicy food. I can handle hot dishes better than some people (*cough* my boyfriend *cough*), but I won’t enjoy a meal that is so spicy, you end up tasting nothing but the hotness. Where’s the fun in that?
We came up this meal with my boyfriend for our weekday dinners. It’s fast and easy to prepare, so it works perfectly on those evenings when you just want to relax and enjoy a tasty meal without spending ages in the kitchen. It’s not real Teriyaki at all, but in lack of a better word, that’s what I use.
Spicy Honey “Teriyaki” Salmon with Noodles
2 Salmon fillets
6 tablespoons of soy sauce
1 tablespoon of grated ginger
1 clove of grated garlic
1 tablespoon of running honey
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
4-6 dried chillies / 1-2 chillies (depends on how hot of a dish can you handle) chopped
About 150g of wholewheat noodles
Mangetout and babycorn
Make the marinade for the salmon by adding the soy sauce, ginger, honey, garlic, chillies and lemon juice together in a bowl. Place the salmon in a dish (I use Chinese take-away rice boxes for this) and pour some of the marinade into it so that the fillets are covered. Let the salmon marinade in the fridge for half an hour to an hour.
Prepare the noodles as the packaging says and set aside.
After the salmon has been in the fridge for the required time, remove the salmon from the marinade. Heat up some oil in a pan and cook the salmon fillets on each side until they are cooked through. The marinade will cause the fillets to turn rather burned looking from the top, but that’s completely fine.
Use another pan to warm up the baby corn and mangetout. Add in the noodles and give them a quick stir. Add in the leftover marinade.
Serve the salmon in a bed of noodles and vegetables.
There you go, I hope you enjoy it!!
