Ingredients

SALMON

10 boned salmon fillet portions

60ml CHEF Shellfish Stock  

2 tablespoons sesame oil

2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger

2 tablespoons Jasmine Green tea

Wood chips

 

NOODLES

10 portions soba noodles

3 tablespoons sesame oil

3 Spring onions, sliced on the angle

2 carrots, sliced into fine julienne strips  

3-4 Bok choy, trimmed and leaves separated

2 cups edamame beans

15ml CHEF Vegetable Liquid Concentrate + 2 cups hot water

GARNISHING IDEAS

Black sesame seeds and/or seaweed  

Method

Marinate salmon portions in combined CHEF Shellfish Stock, sesame oil and ginger for at least 2 hours.

 

Place wood chips in the base of a large wok or similar and sprinkle with tea leaves. Fit a wire rack just above the wood chips and arrange the salmon on the rack skin side down.

 

Cover the top of the wok tightly with a lid or foil and cook for 10-12 minutes over a medium heat until smoky and salmon has just set. Allow to cool for 10 minutes and let the smoke settle.

 

For the noodles, simmer in boiling water for a few minutes until tender then drain. Heat sesame oil in a large pan and sauté spring onion, julienne carrot, bok choy leaves and edamame beans for a few minutes then toss in noodles and CHEF Vegetable Liquid Concentrate mixture.

 

Serve smoked salmon on noodles then spoon over pan juices and garnish with seaweed and black sesame seeds.

Chef's Tips

  • The salmon could also be oven roasted or pan seared
  • Substitute the soba noodles with pasta or vegetable noodles
  • Add fresh chilli, lime zest and toasted sesame as extra garnishes
  • Add extra CHEF Shellfish Stock stock to make it more like a soup or Vietnamese Pho style dish
