Salmon in Nori with Noodles

A recipe from the Good Food collection.


Salmon in Nori With Noodles
Salmon in Nori With Noodles
4 salmon cutlets, cut from the centre of the fish (ask your fishmonger)
1 sheet of nori (dried seaweed)
2 teaspoons oil
250 g (9 oz) somen noodles
2 spring onions (scallions), cut into long thin strips 
½–¾ teaspoon wasabi paste
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons mirin
1 tablespoon lime juice
2 teaspoons soft brown sugar
1 tablespoon oil
2 teaspoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons black sesame seeds, plus some extra, for garnish 
Fish substitution
Ocean trout



  1. Remove the skin and bones from the salmon, keeping the cutlets in one piece. Cut the nori into strips, the same width as the salmon, and wrap a strip tightly around each cutlet to form a neat circle. Seal the edges with a little water. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the salmon for 2–3 minutes on each side, or until cooked to your liking (ideally, it should be a little pink in the centre).
  3. While the salmon is cooking, prepare the noodles and dressing. Put the noodles in a large bowl, cover with boiling water and stand for 5 minutes, or until softened. Drain well. Combine the dressing ingredients in a jug and mix well.
  4. Divide the noodles among serving plates, top with a salmon cutlet and drizzle with the dressing. Add the spring onion, then sprinkle with sesame seeds.


Note: Several of the ingredients in this recipe are Japanese, so you may need to source them from an Asian grocery store.
