Spicy Salmon Noodles

Spicy Salmon Noodles



These noodles take mere minutes to throw together, and you can pad them out with veg to make them go further and ramp up their nutritional value – you can sometimes add a cupful of those small, diced, mixed frozen vegetables and some extra peas, too. Don’t be put off by the jar of salmon paste suggestion; it is a surprisingly versatile ingredient in speedy budget cookery, and it works well here.

  1. Measure your onion into a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan.
  2. Add the ginger and garlic, and pour over the coconut milk.
  3. Crumble in the stock cube and add the curry powder, chilli and pepper.
  4. Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer.
  5. Drain the salmon and tip into the saucepan, or stir in the salmon paste.
  6. Stir well to combine, then cover and cook on a vigorous simmer for 4 minutes.
  7. Add the noodles and the edamame or peas and replace the lid.
  8. Continue to cook for 6 minutes at a slightly less vigorous simmer, then turn off the heat.
  9. Allow to stand for a few minutes for the sauce to thicken as it cools and the noodles continue to cook in the residual steam.
  10. Serve with a dash of lemon or lime juice and extra black pepper, to taste.
