I’ve posted before how much I love soba noodles. There so fast and easy to make. Toss in other ingredients and Viola! You’ve got a meal.
It was one of those weeks and I was in a rush, wanted something fast, wanted to take advantage of a sale on wild caught salmon and honestly was craving miso. Odd for me. Found this recipe from Onceachef.com and had to share as it is really good and simple to make. The longest bit is the marinade but really, come on, you can be doing prep work on the veggies, make a dessert or go popping around on Facebook while this is mingling with the marinade.
Once this was plated (and after I took the picture) I decided this needed to be sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds. Just a little something I wanted to add. It was a little crunch needed for my needs that day. I did double this recipe so that it served my family. The recipe below only serves 2. Just a heads up.
Miso Marinated Salmon and Soba Noodles.
3 Tbsp. miso paste (preferably white miso)
2 Tbsp. mirin (sweet rice cooking wine)
2 Tbsp. honey
1/2 lime, juiced
2 portions salmon (5-6 oz. each)
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 head bok choy, leaves torn and stems sliced
3/4 pound shiitake mushrooms, stems removed and julienned
6 oz. soba noodles, cooked and drained
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp. ginger, minced
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 Tbsp. sesame oil
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/4 cup green onion, minced
What you do:
Combine miso, mirin, honey and lime juice and mix together until honey is dissolved. Place salmon in a zip lock bag, add marinade, and close. Rub marinade into fish and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Meanwhile prepare the rest of the ingredients. Just before fish is done marinating turn your oven to “broil.” Line a sheet try with foil and spray with vegetable spray. Place fish, bottom side up, on try and broil for 3 minutes. Flip over and broil another 4-8 minutes depending on how you like your salmon done.
While fish is broiling, heat a large saute pan and add the vegetable oil. Add the mushrooms and saute for 1 minute. Add the garlic and ginger, cook for 30 seconds longer then add the bok choy stems. Cook for 1 minute then add the bok choy leaves, green onions and soba noodles. Cook until bok choy leaves are starting to wilt then add the remaining ingredients and cook until heated through. Divide among 2 plates and top each mound with a piece of the broiled salmon.
Till Next time!
