Soba Noodles, Ginger And Salmon Salad Bowl
Next time you’re in need of some inspiration for a healthy lunch or dinner, make sure you have this Soba Noodles, Ginger And Salmon Salad Bowl recipe bookmarked.
This recipe is such a wonderful infusion of flavours! The ginger and lime dressing is so yummy paired with the salad, noodles and salmon. Not only does it look and taste amazing — it is really filling too!
Salmon is one of my favourite sources of protein because it can be so versatile! Making grilled salmon with a Nicoise Salad for dinner is simple and a great way to get some more serves of vegetables and protein in. Salmon is also a source of vitamin B6, which your body uses to produce serotonin — a hormone that helps to boost your mood.
I’m a huge fan of healthy recipes that don’t take long to prepare which is another reason why I love this salad bowl with soba noodles.
What are soba noodles?
Originating in Japan, soba noodles are a thin noodle that is brown in colour. You’ll often find them used in stir-fries and hot soups.
Soba noodles are made from buckwheat flour, which gives them a delicious nutty flavour. It’s not just the flavour of soba noodles that makes them really popular — they cook in just a few minutes too!
You may have already seen dried soba noodles in the Asian foods section of your grocery store but fresh soba noodles are also something you can purchase. The fresh variety may not be quite as easy to find but your local Asian food market is the best bet.
While some varieties of soba noodles are gluten-free, some do use a mixture of buckwheat and wheat flour, so make sure you check the label. Once you’ve made soba noodles and tried them, I’m sure you will want to use them in a number of different recipes!

Prep time: 10 mins

Total time: 25 mins
Dietary preferences: Pescetarian, Dairy-free
- 85g salmon fillet, skin removed
- 50g dried soba noodles
- 50g edamame beans
- ¼ medium carrot, julienned
- 1 medium radish, sliced in rounds
- 1 tsp white sesame seeds
- ½ spring onion, sliced
- 4 coriander sprigs
- oil spray
- sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
- Lime wedges, to serve
Ginger and lime dressing:
- ½ lime, juiced
- 1 tsp soy sauce
- 1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- ½ tsp finely diced coriander stalks
- ¼ tsp finely diced long red chilli.
1. Season the salmon with salt and pepper, if desired. Heat a non-stick fry pan over medium heat and spray lightly with oil spray. Add the salmon and cook for 5-6 minutes or until cooked to your liking, turning occasionally. Transfer to a plate and set aside to rest for 2 minutes.
2. To make the dressing, whisk the lime, soy sauce, ginger, sesame oil, coriander stalks and chilli together in a small bowl.
3. Fill a large saucepan with water, add a pinch of salt and bring to the boil. Add the noodles and cook for 6-8 minutes. Drain and place in a bowl of cold water. Using your hands, vigorously rub the noodles together — this will help to wash off the excess starch and separate the noodles. Refresh under cold water and drain well.
4. Transfer the noodles to a large bowl, drizzle over the dressing and toss gently to combine.
5. To serve, place the soba noodles in a serving bowl and top with the edamame beans, carrot, radish and salmon. Sprinkle over the sesame seeds, spring onions and coriander and serve with lime wedges on the side.
