Asian Baked Salmon, Stir fry and Noodles

As Today is Good Friday, and being Irish, a good ole faithful salmon recipe is called for. After all, I recently heard that salmon, haddock and cod are the most consumed fish on our shores. We are being recommended to eat 3 portions of fish each week, so why not give a different take on the humble salmon fillet.

Serves 2


2 salmon fillets
5-6 tbsp of teriyaki marinade
1 lemon
Grated thumb size of ginger
Grated clove of garlic
Diced red chili
Soy Sauce
Mangtout, and green beans, sliced
red onion, sliced
Red pepper, sliced
Noodles to serve
Chopped coriander


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees
  2. Place the salmon fillets in a bowl and marinate with the teriyaki sauce and half the ginger and half the garlic
  3. Season with pepper and leave for 10-15 mins to infuse.
  4. Place in the oven for 20-25 mins until wonderfully moist and soft 
  5. Meanwhile, add the oil to a wok on a high heat and add the ginger, garlic and chili
  6. Stir fry for a couple of minutes and add the vegetables, and stir fry for 5 more mins. You want the vegetables to maintain their crunch, add soy sauce and chopped coriander.
  7. Add noodles to a saucepan of boiling water and simmer according to packet instructions
  8. To serve, place the noodles in the centre of a plate
  9. Place the stir fry vegetables on top and top it all off with the fillet of salmon
  10. Serve with a slice of lemon and more soy sauce to taste.
  11. If noodles aren'y your thing, then rice or baby potatoes go equally as well.
Tip: If you on a diet, try eating with chopsticks, this prolongs the eating ritual, meaning that you'll feel fuller before the end of the meal, rather than eating faster with a knife and fork... Well it works for me and its fun to do!
