Need a quick, super healthy dinner that packs a flavour punch? This is it.
2 pieces of salmon (skin off) sprinkled with sesame seeds
bunch of bok choy
500mls water with one chicken stock cube
small knob of grated ginger
1 carrot, finely sliced
1 stick of celery, finely sliced
2 heaped teaspoons of white miso paste
soba or udon noodles
1 teaspoon sugar
soy sauce to taste
coriander to garnish
Put water, stock cube, grated ginger and miso paste in a large saucepan and simmer gently until miso has dissolved. Add sugar and soy sauce and taste until you achieve the balance of flavours you like. Add carrot, celery and noodles.
Meanwhile pan fry your salmon, until just cooked. Be careful not to overcook as the salmon will continue to cook in the broth when you serve. Once cooked and cooled slightly, break salmon apart into chunks.
Divide your fresh bok choy into two bowls, pour over the broth with the noodles and add your salmon, garnishing with coriander.
You could also add fresh bean sprouts or mushrooms or garnish with fresh red chilli.
I think this dish may become a firm favourite in our house. Happy days!
