Salmon with miso noodle salad recipe

Cold noodle salads are delightfully refreshing on a warm day and this salmon with miso noodle salad is the perfect combination for a healthy meal.

Serving Size:

Serves 4



  • 1 tbsp miso paste
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 270g soba noodles
  • 1 carrot, julienned
  • 4 shallots, finely sliced
  • 1/3 cup coriander leaves
  • 50g baby spinach, shredded
  • 2 tsp olive oil, extra
  • 4 salmon fillets (approx. 125g each)


In a bowl, whisk miso, oils, vinegar and water.

Cook noodles according to packet instructions. Drain and rinse in cold water. Place noodles in a large bowl with carrot, shallots, coriander and spinach. Pour over three-quarters of miso dressing and toss well.

Heat extra olive oil in a non-stick frypan over medium heat. Cook salmon fillets, skin-side down, for three minutes. Turn and cook for a further minute.

Divide noodle salad between serving plates. Top with salmon fillets. Drizzle over remaining miso dressing.


  • For an even bigger miso punch, try coating fillets with miso paste and baking them.
  • Use whatever vegetables you like in the salad - shredded red capsicum, blanched broccoli or green beans would also be delicious.
