SALMON SOBA BOWLS WITH MISO GINGER BROTH

 

This is a bowl of goodness, full of flavour, textures, healthy fats and green vegetables. You’ll feel better just smelling it. Can you tell I’m obsessed with salmon at the moment?!

This recipe is made to serve one but it’s super easy to double it or more, you’ll just need bigger pots, obvs. You may also only need to increase the miso by half per extra serving.

The broth is s flavoursome and by gently cooking the salmon fillet in the broth you get the lovely fragrant flavour of the broth in the salmon, and the fish is just cooked when you flake it apart with your chopsticks/fork. Amazing.

You could use any green veg you like/is in season in this. I usually have frozen edamame in the freezer so that’s why I went with it. Plus I love the pop of freshness the little beans give in each mouthful.

The pother super great addition to this dish is the toasted sesame seeds. As you eat they impart their nutty flavour into the broth, adding another of flavour to the broth as you slurp your way through.

This is the kind of deliciousness that I want to eat everyday at the moment, it’s balanced, clean and delicious. If you give it a go let me know!!

In other news, I’m really craving some new food styling things at the moment and am obsessed with all the shibori linen an pottery barn right now… might need to give myself a new financial year gift…!
