  • 2 tbsp miso paste 
  • 1 ½ tbsp soft brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 4 x 200 g salmon fillets, boned
  • 250 g Japanese soba noodles
  • 150 g mangetout, trimmed 
  • 150 g shelled edamame beans 
  • 1 handful mixed leaves

For the wasabi dressing

  • 2 tbsp olive oil 
  • 1 ½ tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp mirin
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp wasabi paste 
  • 1 tsp caster sugar 
  • 1 tsp sesame oil 
  • Black and white sesame seeds, and chive flowers, to serve



  1. Combine the miso paste, soy sauce and sugar with
    2 tablespoons boiling water and stir well until smooth. Pour over the salmon fillets, keeping some for later,
    and set aside.
  2. Cook the noodles in a pan of lightly salted, boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain, refresh under cold water and shake dry, then place in a bowl. Finely shred the mangetout and add to the noodles with the edamame beans and salad leaves. 
  3. Preheat the grill to high, line a grill pan with foil.
    Place the salmon on the grill rack, skin side down, and grill for 6 – 8 minutes, basting halfway through, until the salmon is cooked. Rest for 5 minutes. 
  4. Stir the ingredients for the wasabi dressing together until the sugar is dissolved. Stir the dressing through
    the noodle salad and serve the salmon garnished with the sesame seeds and a few chive flowers, if available.
