Recipe of the Week: Minty Fresh Atlantic Bowl

 

Fresh, zesty, nutritious and fulfilling – everything you want on a hot summer day, right?

This recipe is one for the books, my friends! Rich in protein, omega-3 fatty acids, packed with fibre and loaded with flavour, this meal surely packs a punch.

Nutrition tip: including oily fish 2x per week is an excellent way to nourish your brain and heart! Oily fish such as salmon, trout, sardines or tuna are rich in omega-3 fatty acids – where this funky name denotes it’s chemical composition.

Notably, DHA and EPA types of omega-3s have been extensively studied and found to have anti-inflammatory properties, are important in maintaining the integrity of our blood vessels, warding off ‘bad’ cholesterol, optimise cognitive processes, mood regulation AND memory.

Here is a recipe that will give you all the feels!

INGREDIENTS

  • 100g salmon, pan-fried  (or you may wish to purchase pre-poached salmon filets)
  • 1 shallot, sliced
  • 100g soba noodles, cooked
  • ¼ of Cucumber, sliced julienne
  • 1 small carrot, shredded

DRESSING

  • 1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 1 tsp soya sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • Fresh mint and coriander
  • Pepper and salt to taste
  • Red chillies to garnish (optional – if you’re feeling spicy!)

METHOD

  1. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Spray the salmon with olive oil spray. Season. 
  2. Cook the salmon for 2-3 mins each side for medium or until cooked to your liking (approximately 8-10 minutes depending on the thickness of salmon).
  3. While salmon is cooking, place soba noodles in large mixing bowl. Cover noodles with boiling water and let sit for 2-3 minutes (or until softened). Drain and set aside.
  4. In a bowl, add the cooked soba noodles, julienne cucumber, shredded carrot.
  5. For the dressing, mix together sweet chilli sauce, soya sauce and sesame oil well. Add to noodle mix.
  6. Place salmon on top and garnish with mint, coriander and fresh chili
Keep cool these days, stay hydrated and enjoy!
