Salmon Ramen For One

I've been on a bit of an Asian kick lately it seems and here is another one. This is such a warming healthy soup that really is a perfectly balanced meal. I make this for myself if I happen to get a few moments for lunch without the kids.  You can spice it up as much as you like and change the vegetables to cater to your own tastes.

If you don't have ramen noodles, udon or soba will work fine, so will just plain old spaghetti!  It's very flexible! :)

  • 1 skinned fillet of salmon
  • 1 tbsp mirin
  • 1 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp chilli sauce (like sriracha)
  • 1 clove garlic, diced
  • 1 inch piece of ginger, grated
  • 1 small red onion, thinkly slived
  • 1 small carrot, julienned
  • 1-2 cups chicken stock or dashi
  • Handful mange tout, julienned
  • 1 cup of cooked ramen noodles
  • handful bean sprouts
  • handful coriander, chopped
Marinate the salmon in the mirin, soy sauce, honey, chilli sauce, garlic and ginger for half an hour or so. 

Stir-fry the carrot and onion for a minute or two until just softened. Remove from pan. Add stock and bring to a boil.  Add salmon and marinade and cook 3-5 minutes until fish is cooked. Remove from pan and set aside.  

Add noodles and vegetables to a bowl, ladle stock over them.  Top with salmon and sprinkle with coriander.

  1. I am so trying this. Yum yum!!!! i particularly like the For One aspect. Mister Husband is crap at fish and the lads probably wouldn't eat it in a famine. Ungrateful lot. I on the other hand, love fish, specially salmon.
