Soba noodles 100% buckwheat

180 g

Snow peas

200 g, thinly sliced

Sunflower oil

1 tbs

Miso paste

1½ tbs

Tamari

2 tbs

Mirin seasoning

Smoked salmon

50 g, (hot smoked), skin off, flaked

Fresh coriander

¼ cup(s), leaves

Baby spinach leaves

5 cup(s), (100g)

Sesame seeds

2 tsp, lightly toasted

Instructions

  1. Cook noodles in a large saucepan of boiling salted water following packet instructions, or until just tender. Add snow peas for the last minute of cooking. Drain, refresh under cold water, then drain again. Transfer noodles to a large serving bowl.
  2. Combine oil, miso, tamari and mirin in a small bowl. Add carrot, salmon, coriander and spinach to noodles. Drizzle miso dressing over noodles, tossing to combine. Serve soba salad sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds.

Notes

TIP: Miso (a thick paste made from fermented soybean), tamari (a dark soy sauce) and mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine) are all available from the Asian aisle of major supermarkets and Asian grocers. You can use thinly sliced smoked salmon instead of hot smoked salmon. Transport this salad in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator until ready to eat.
