Teriyaki Salmon
with broccoli / soba noodles

Active: 40 min Total: 40 min
Sweet and savory teriyaki sauce is always popular in our community kitchens, and we love the balance of flavors it brings to roasted salmon. Soba noodle saute is a quick and filling side dish.
Smarts: Roasting salmon in the teriyaki sauce cooks it more slowly and evenly than searing it in a pan. You can tell the salmon is cooked through when it flakes easily with a fork.

  • Salmon - 1 lb

  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C.
  2. Place salmon into a parchment-lined baking dish and coat with 1/4 cup / 60 mL (for 4 servings; adjust if customized) teriyaki sauce. Top salmon with sesame seeds and green onions (green and white parts). Bake until salmon flakes easily with a fork, 15 to 25 minutes, depending on thickness of the salmon (1 1/2” / 3.75cm thick salmon takes about 20 minutes).
  3. While salmon cooks, bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add broccoli and noodles together. Cook until noodles and broccoli are tender. (Soba noodles don’t take long to cook, so keep an eye out; broccoli should still have some crunch.) Drain.
  4. Toss soba noodles and broccoli with 1/4 cup / 60 mL (for 4 servings; adjust if customized) teriyaki sauce. Stir in cashews.
  5. Serve salmon with broccoli soba noodles and lime wedges for squeezing over the entire dish. Enjoy.
