Sesame Noodles with Spinach and Salmon

OK, now when I make this recipe I practically triple it but its the boys “second favorite” noodle dish and when we make it there are NEVER any leftovers.


2 tbls vegetable oil

8 oz salmon filet

black pepper/ salt

1 tbls minced garlic

4 tbls sesame seeds

1.5 lbs spinach roughly chopped

1 tbls soy sauce

1 tsp ginger (fresh or dried, depending on personal taste)

1 tsp sugar (I used brown vs white, you can use either)

1/2 tsp sesame oil

8 oz spaghetti noodles


Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add salt to it.  Add the noodles and cook until done. Drain and reserve noodles.

Put the vegetable oil in a large, deep skillet over medium high heat and cook the salmon on both sides (seasoning with salt and pepper) until nicely browned on both sides – about 6 min/side or until it flakes into bite sized pieced.   Removed salmon from skillet and place aside.

In a seperate bowl combine soy sauce, sugar, ginger and sesame oil.  Wisk well.

Reduce heat under skillet to medium.  Add the sesame seeds and garlic.  Cook stirring constantly until the sesame seeds turn golden, approx 1-2 min.  Add the soy sauce mixture and reduce the heat to low.

Add the drained/cooked noodles and spinach to the skillet, mix well.  Cover and allow the spinach to wilt, approx 5 min.  Flake cooked salmon with fork and sprinkle over the top of the sesame noodles.  Serve warm.
