Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
- 2 salmon fillets
- 2 Tbsp sesame oil
- 2 Tbsp soy sauce
- 3 Tbsp maple syrup
- 1 clove garlic minced
- juice and zest of a lime
- 2 zucchini spiralised
- 1/4 pound of cooked egg noodles optional
- 2 Tbsp chopped cilantro
In a nonstick skillet over a medium heat add the sesame oil. Let the pan heat up slightly. Place the salmon in the warm pan skin side down. Gently press a spatula down on the salmon while the skin forms a contact with the pan.
In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, maple syrup, ginger and garlic. Once the salmon is
half way done, add the glaze and bring it to a gentle boil. Using a spoon, baste the salmon with the glaze, until the fish is cooked. About 5 more minutes.
When the salmon is cooked remove it to a small plate and cover with foil and leave to rest for 10 minutes. Toss the noodles in the pan to soften and toss with the remaining sauce.
Divide the noodles onto 2 plates and lay the salmon over top. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and cilantro.
