Zesty chilli salmon with courgette and ginger noodles

A delicious and healthy way to enjoy Norwegian salmon- the salmon is glazed in an orange and sweet chilli dressing which bursts with flavour, placed on ginger noodles and a bed of fresh lemony courgette this is a delicious and simple way to enjoy fresh salmon.

I’ve always loved the combination of salmon and noodles, and when the Norwegian Seafood Council asked me to create an easy supper using their salmon from Norway, I wanted to create something served with noodles, but with a real burst of flavour to complement the salmon. I chose an orange and chilli glaze, as it turns beautifully sticky when it’s baked in the oven, and the orange zest really packs in extra flavour.

When it’s baked like this, salmon really comes out with the most beautiful consistency- it’s very tender and falls apart perfectly. I’ve made a very simple ginger and soy dressing to give the noodles a little flavour of their own, and the freshness of the lemony courgette complements the flavour packed salmon and adds a little crunch into the whole dish.

You can watch the step-by-step video below to see how easy this is to throw together (if you are having any problems watching it you can click here to view it on YouTube (and don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube Channel!). The full recipe is detailed below.

I bought my Norwegian salmon in Tesco, but it is available in most major supermarkets.
