Notes

TIPS: To toast sesame seeds, toss them in a small non-stick frying pan over high heat until golden. Cook an extra 45g noodles in Step 4 to make Asian salmon & noodle salad for tomorrow’s lunch. Cover and place in fridge. The next day, toss noodles with 50g thinly sliced smoked salmon, 1 cucumber (thinly sliced), 1 carrot (cut into matchsticks), 1 tablespoon finely shredded fresh mint leaves, ½ teaspoon sesame oil and 1 teaspoon lime juice.
