Ginger Poached Salmon With Udon Noodles

What You Need…
– 4 cups chicken stock
– 1/4 cup soy sauce
– 1/4 cup mirin (Mirin is a low-alcohol, slightly sweet Japanese rice wine used for cooking. You can find it in the Asian food aisle of the supermarket)
– 5 cm piece of fresh ginger, thinly sliced.
–  1 long red chilli, thinly sliced.
– 4 x 150 gram skinless salmon fillets.
– 1 bunch broccolini, trimmed, roughly chopped.
– 440 gram packet of fresh udon noodles.
– 2 small carrots.
– 1/2 cup of fresh coriander leaves.
What You Need To Do…
Step 1:
Combine stock, soy sauce, mirin, ginger and half the chilli in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Add salmon. Cook, covered, for 5 to 7 minutes or until just cooked through. Using a slotted spoon, carefully transfer salmon fillets to a plate. Cover loosely with foil to keep warm.
Step 2:
Add broccolini to poaching liquid. Cook, covered, for 1 to 2 minutes or until just tender. Transfer to a plate. Add noodles to liquid. Cook, uncovered, for 2 to 3 minutes or until separated. Drain noodles, reserving 1½ cups poaching liquid.
Step 3:
Return reserved liquid to pan over high heat. Bring to the boil. Boil for 2 to 3 minutes or until reduced slightly. Ginger-poached salmon with udon noodles
Step 4:
Meanwhile, using a vegetable peeler, cut carrots into thin ribbons. Divide noodles among serving bowls. Top with broccolini, carrot and salmon. Drizzle with reduced poaching liquid. Serve topped with coriander and remaining chilli.
Step 5:
PSThis will make enough for roughly 4 normal people or 2 very hungry people. If you want/need more you can always make a double batch by simply using double of all ingredients 🙂
PPSIt’s always a good idea to cook a little bit extra than you need, this way you will have some left over for lunch or dinner the next day 🙂Let me know what you think in the comments below!
