Fresh Salmon with Zesty Squash Noodles

Fresh Salmon with Zesty Squash Noodles

Including a healthy portion of salmon in your midweek meal plan will give you and your family an impressive dose of Omega 3- fatty acids and a good boost of protein!

Our simple dish celebrates seasonal squash and will easily make a fabulous dinner or lunchtime option. Vegetable noodles are so ‘on trend’ and super easy and quick to make.

We found the addition of grated fresh orange in this recipe, adds a perfectly tangy flavour to the noodles and the salmon.

Fresh Salmon with Zesty Squash Noodles

Course: Lunch, Main Dish, Salmon, Seafood
Servings: 4 people
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 fillets fresh salmon - uncooked
  • 1 large Squash, peeled
  • 1 medium orange, juice and zest
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Instructions:

Squash:

  1. Cut the squash in half and remove any seeds. Using a spiralizer or gently boil for a few minutes and then carefully grate or cut the squash into very fine strips.
  2. Place the noodles into a large non stick frying pan with half of the oil, squeeze in the orange juice, add the cinnamon and cook gently for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to ensure the noodles don't stick.
  3. Once the noodles have softened, grate in the orange zest, season well and leave on a very low heat. Save a little zest.

Salmon Fillets:

  1. Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper and place in a non stick frying pan with the skin facing down. Cook gently for 3 - 4 minutes until the skin starts to crisp before turning over. Cook for another two minutes
  2. To serve simply plate up the noodles and drizzle with the rest of the olive oil and place the salmon fillet on top. Sprinkle over the rest of the zest and season to taste.

Recipe Notes:

For a little kick of flavour, add some fresh chilli to the noodles and serve with a large dollop of creme fraiche.
