Serves 2, Prep Time 15 Minutes, Cooking Time 20 Minutes


1x cup of purple cabbage, finely shredded (I recommend using a peeler, going against the grain or a mandolin)

½ carrot, sliced into thin matchsticks 

1/2 red capsicum, sliced into thin matchsticks (option to do ½ red and ½ yellow)

½ cucumber, thinly sliced into rounds 

1x handful of fresh coriander, finely chopped

1x handful of fresh mint, finely chopped

1x Spring onion, thinly sliced 

1x baby cos lettuce head, shredded

1x red chili, deseeded and thinly sliced into rounds


1x tsp freshly grated ginger 

2x tbsp Tamari or soy sauce 

1x tbsp Dijon mustard 

1x tbsp Sesame Oil 

1x tbsp maple syrup 

Pinch of five spice power


2x Salmon Fillet (skin on)

1x black sesame seeds (garnish)

Pickled ginger (garnish)

1x lime 

½ avocado 

Packet of soba noodles 


1. Prepare all of the salad ingredients and mix together in a large bowl.

2. In a jug, whisk together all of the dressing ingredients until well combined and smooth. Set aside. 

3. Rinse your salmon and then pat it dry with some kitchen roll. Season the salmon skin with salt and pepper, gently rubbing it into the skin. 

4. Bring a pot of water to the boil for the soba noodles and then cook as per the packet instructions. 

5. While the noodles are cooking, heat a non-stick frying pan with a little olive oil over a medium-high heat. 

6. Once the oil is hot, add the salmon skin down and cook until the skin has crisped up, then flip over and cook until done. You can also cook the salmon in the air fryer or oven. You want the skin crispy, with the salmon filet cooked to your liking (I like it just cooked, a little pink still on the inside). 

7. Chop your avocado into slices or cubes (whatever your preference!)

8. Squeeze the juice of ½ lime over the salad and toss. 

9. Plate up the salmon, noodles and salad and then add your avocado. Drizzle over the dressing, sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve with some pickled ginger.
