I know this time of year is all about indulging in plenty of comfort food and Christmassy goodness but already we’re dreaming of taking a break from all the heaviness and eating something like this simple salmon recipe.

It’s ridiculously easy to make which means that I can serve it up on a weeknight when I’m desperate for a quick meal that’s healthy and tastes incredible but it’s also fancy enough to serve at a dinner party and can easily be multiplied for bigger crowds.

Once you’ve made it for dinner you can save the leftovers for lunch the next day as everything tastes great cold too. The pickled cucumber also makes a welcome addition with a hint of tangy sweetness.

Why we love this honey soy salmon…

It’s a super easy recipe which comes together in no time. Once the salmon is marinated then popped in the oven everything else can happen while it cooks.

This recipe is also really healthy especially if you use wholewheat noodles so it’s ideal for when you’re after something a bit lighter.

It’s great hot or cold which makes it a dream for meal prep. You can keep any leftovers to take for a desk lunch everyone will be jealous of the next day!

Honey Glazed Salmon Ingredients

Salmon Fillets: You can get these frozen pretty cheaply.

Salmon Marinade: This is a delicious combination of lime juice, honey, sriracha, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and sesame oil and it gets all sticky and tasty when it’s baked in the oven.

Noodles: We used wholewheat noodles which are really delicious and make everything even healthier but you could use whatever you like.

Noodle Dressing: Garlic, ginger, sesame oil and soy sauce are tossed with the noodles straight after draining.

Sesame Seeds & Coriander: To serve.

How to make salmon noodles

Marinate the salmon: Whisk together all of the marinade ingredients and pour over the salmon fillets then leave to sit for 15 minutes.

Cook the salmon: Place the marinated salmon pieces on a baking sheet and put in the oven for 7-10 minutes until it flakes easily.

Pickle the cucumber: Thinly slice the cucumber and place in a colander sprinkled with salt, sit for 15 minutes. Mix the vinegar, sugar and coriander seeds and toss with the cucumber.

Make the noodles: Whisk together the dressing ingredients. Cook the noodles according to packet instructions then toss with the dressing and served topped with the salmon.
