Chef's tip

"Add a little sesame oil to the dressing to give it a different flavour."


Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Add the noodles and cook for 3 minutes. Drain and wash under cold water.

Chop the coriander leaves, ginger, chilli and garlic. Finely slice the spring onions.

Heat a frying pan and add a little oil. Place the salmon in the pan and cook for a couple of minutes on each side. Remove from the pan.

For the dressing: Zest and juice the lime. Mix the soy sauce , coriander, ginger, chilli, garlic, peanut oil and sugar with the lime zest and juice.

Add the dressing to the noodles and stir through the spring onions.

Plate the noodles and place the salmon on top. Finish with a final drizzle of the soy-lime dressing.

Hi Clive. This recipe works best when made with raw garlic, chilli and ginger as it gives the dressing the freshest flavour. Cooking the ingredients will tone down the flavours to give a milder dish. Adjust the ratio of soy to peanut oil and lime juice according to taste.

Comment from CLIVE

i notice that you have still not corrected the recipe. The garlic, ginger and chili are fried before being put in the liquid

2. Most important the quantities of peanut oil and soy are wrong. The recipe says 10cl of soy to 5cl of oil, but in the demo it was 3 units of oil to 1 of soy and the same amount of lime etc

Comment from CLIVE

are you sure this recipe is right? it sounds like you serve the garlic, chile and ginger raw. Also the quantities don't seem right for six people.
