Honey Soy Glazed Salmon Salad

Summer is here and that means fresh, vibrant and punchy salads for those hot days and nights and this dish delivers just that. Pack it out with herbs from your garden or mix and match your favourites, you can get a little creative with this one, the hero is the perfectly cooked soy glazed salmon.

Method

Step 1.
Prepare the soy tahini dressing by placing all ingredients into a small jar with water tight lid, shake well until dressing comes together and is smooth and creamy. Place in fridge until serving.

Step 2.
For the soy glaze, combine in a medium bowl, mixing well until a smooth paste forms. If you think it is too thick, add a little more hot water. Placing salmon on a large dish, pour glaze over salmon and using a pasty brush, brush over all the salmon fillets until coated.

Step 3.
Heat a large nonstick frypan over high heat. Cook the salmon in batches for 2-3 mins* on each side until slightly golden and evenly charred. Repeat with remaining fillets, setting aside until time to assemble.

Step 4.
Build the salad in a large serving dish layering noodles, salmon, along with veg and herbs, finally dressing with the soy tahini dressing and serving with lime wedges and a sprinkling of sesame seeds.

Notes
* You can also use skin off salmon.
* Gochujang is a fermented chili paste used in Korean cooking. As an alternative, use sambal oelek or chilli flakes.
* Use buckwheat only Green Tea Noodles to ensure meal is GF.
* Vary the salmon cooking time to suit your taste. Ideally a nice pink centre is what you are looking for.

Key tip

  1. Making dressings – balance – using soy as a seasoning / umami element
  2. Cooking fish – fish will keep cooking when it comes off the heat
  3. Kikkoman Gluten Free Soy Sauce is naturally brewed, using whole rice instead of whole wheat.
