Salmon with Ginger Noodles

0 from 0 votes

Ginger noodles add Asian flavor to this salmon dish.

Salmon, one of our favorite superfoods due to its high level of omega-3 fatty acids, lends itself very well to the flavors of Asian cuisine. In this recipe, we pair our salmon filets with ginger noodles. Using brown rice noodles will amp up your fiber content, and, when combined with protein-rich salmon, will make for a satisfying dinner. And this dish certainly does not lack flavor, with its use of ginger, mint, mustard oil, and radish. Ginger is another superfood powerhouse, with its antioxidants, digestive benefits, and anti-inflammatory properties.

  1. OK, this was totally awesome, so full of flavor and I used canned wild-caught salmon and powdered ginger. Thank goodness I had fresh mint. I also used a teaspoon hot mustard in place of the mustard oil. What a winner! I never comment on recipes, so I am telling you this was amazing! Thanks for posting!
