I love this because you feel pretty pleased with yourself that you’ve managed to knock out a Wagamama style dinner full of healthiness in less time than it takes to go to the Chinese for takeaway!
I make my own sweet chilli sauce to go with it.
Boil a large saucepan of water, ready to cook the noodles.
Start frying the salmon in a heavy frying pan or just bake it in a 200 degree oven for 15 mins. Mean time heat the oil in a really large shallow pan or wok and fry the spring onion, chilli and garlic for a couple of minutes before adding the nuts, peppers, greens and edamame beans. Cook for 3-4 minutes so the beans thaw and cook and the peppers soften a little bit but everything retains its bright colour.
While that’s cooking the water should be boiling so add the noodles and cook for about 4 mins, then drain.
Add the fish sauce and the vinegar to the vegetable pan and give it all a good stir before tipping in the noodles and using two forks to combine everything.
Serve in bowls with the salmon on top, with ketjap manis and sweet chilli sauce and a sprinkle of the coriander.
Salmon (and its peer, sea trout) is very high in Vitamin B12, which is important for red blood cell production. A deficiency in B12 can result in a form of anaemia. B12 also helps to regulate production of a hormone called Homocysteine, an excess of which can lead to heart and blood vessel disease and stroke. Salmon is also a good source of Vitamin D, whose functions include bone health, blood sugar control and immunity. Many people are Vitamin D deficient – our bodies largely get it from sunlight with food being a secondary source.
Always buy good salmon, responsibly produced and organic. Salmon farming is riddled with issues, not just for the fish themselves, and us as consumers, but for the environment.
Peanuts are also a rich source of manganese which also helps with having fantastic bones and skin as well as helping to control blood sugar. And in these days of diabetes epidemics that’s a huge bonus.Nuts for the win!
