Spicy Asian Salmon Noodle Salad

serves 3-4

recipe adapted from Rachael Ray Magazine

for the salmon

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce (use GF tamari if GF)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 4 salmon filets, skin on
  • salt & pepper

Preheat Broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and set aside.

Mix honey, sriracha, soy sauce and lime in a small bowl. Place salmon on foil lined baking sheet. Baste the honey sriracha on top of salmon. Season with salt and pepper and broil in oven about 10-15 minutes, making sure to baste again half way through. If you your salmon completely opaque, take out at the 15 minute mark.  Peel skin of salmon and let salmon cool.   If you like crispy salmon skin, put skin back on the baking sheet and broil until crispy. Meanwhile prepare the noodle salad.
