  • 3 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger
  • 60ml (1/4 cup) soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons dry sherry
  • 1 teaspoon caster sugar
  • 55g (1/3 cup) sesame seeds
  • 4 (about 200g each) skinless salmon fillets
  • 200g Hakubaku Organic Soba Noodles
  • 300g sugar snap peas, trimmed


  • Step 1
    Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and ginger, and cook for 30 seconds or until aromatic. Add the soy sauce, sherry and sugar. Bring to the boil and cook for 3 minutes or until the mixture reduces slightly.
  • Step 2
    Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper. Place seeds on a plate. Press top and bottom of each salmon fillet onto seeds to coat.
  • Step 3
    Heat half the remaining oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add half the salmon and cook for 1-2 minutes each side or until light golden. Transfer to the lined tray. Wipe the pan clean with paper towel. Repeat with the remaining oil and salmon.
  • Step 4
    Bake the salmon in oven for 5 minutes for medium or until cooked to your liking.
  • Step 5
    Meanwhile, bring a saucepan of water to the boil. Add the noodles and cook for 5 minutes, adding the sugar snap peas in the last 2 minutes of cooking. Drain and return to the pan. Add 1 tablespoon of the soy sauce mixture and toss to coat.
  • Step 6
    Divide the noodle mixture among serving plates. Top with the salmon and drizzle over the remaining soy sauce mixture to serve.
