Serves 4

  • 1 tablespoon dashi powder*
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons pickled ginger liquid, plus pickled ginger to serve
  • Cracked black pepper
  • 800g skinless salmon fillets, cut into 2cm slices
  • 400g green tea soba noodles*

*Dashi powder and green tea soba noodles are from Asian supermarkets.


  • Place the dashi, sesame oil, pickled ginger liquid, and pepper in a small bowl and mix to combine.
  • Place the salmon and half the marinade in a large bowl and gently toss to coat. Set aside marinade for 10 minutes. Thread the salmon onto 12 skewers.
  • Heat a large non-stick frypan over medium heat. Add the skewers and cook for 2 minutes each side or until golden.
  • While the salmon is cooking, cook the noodles in a saucepan of salted boiling water for 3-4 minutes or until tender. Drain and toss the remaining marinade.
  • Serve the skewers and noodles with pickled ginger.

Try this: Sprinkle over a little shichimi togarashi (Japanese spice mix) to add heat and finish the dish with a few sprigs of micro (baby) shiso leaves.
