Miso Fish with Soba Noodles.

Soba noodles are made of buckwheat and may need some getting used to. They are healthy and nutritious. Japanese cuisine often showcases them well.

This is a healthy meal served family style, enough to serve 4.

Step 1

4 pieces of salmon fish, 10 cm/ 4-inch squares; marinated for 30 minutes or overnight. Bring it to room temperature before cooking. 

Remove the marinade and grill or pan fry the fish until cooked.

1 tsp finely chopped fresh ginger or 1 tbsp ginger syrup
1 tsp Nanami Togarashi (Japanese chilli powder with sesame seeds)
3 tbsp white miso paste
1 tsp horseradish paste or wasabi
3 tbsp rice wine vinegar
3 tbsp sake
3 tbsp soya sauce
1 tbsp honey
A pinch of salt

Step 2

350 g/12 oz packet soba noodles, cooked for 8 minutes in an open pot of boiling water, salt, and a tsp of oil, and drained well.

Step 3

Choose five of your favourite vegetables and cut them all evenly on the diagonal. Stir fry them in 1 tbsp of oil in a large wok for 5 minutes. Do not overcook. 

I used 1 carrot, 1 celery stick, 5 mushrooms, 1 courgette/zucchini, 1 baby eggplant, 12 green beans, 3 green onions, 3 florets broccoli, 3 florets cauliflower, and 6 small bok choy slit in half 

1  long red chilli pepper

1  long yellow chilli pepper
3 finely chopped garlic cloves


Toss the vegetables in the stir fry, add the cooked noodles to the stir fry, toss the remainder of the marinade all over Stir well and then divide it into 4 bowls. Top each bowl with one piece of fish and serve immediately. 

An alternate pasta/noodle that taste  just as good and are healthy is one made up of rice and spinach and is available in supermarkets.
