Orange Ginger Salmon with Rice Noodles

A creation Lou made a few nights ago:

Marinate Salmon in dressing of your choosing. 

We used an Orange Ginger Soy marinade (La Choy).
Lou was angry he didn't make his own sauce,
he had to use this one because my mom gave it to him.
He got kiss-up points for using it. 

Lousclues**I've done rubs, but I haven't ventured into marinades yet.  I imagine you use stock, and drop a flavor bomb into it, followed by whatever it is you'd like to enhance.  I feel shame when I use pre-made products, like it's cheating.

Bake Salmon and shred. 

Below are the rice/Thai noodles we used.

The noodles were pre-soaked in water, and maybe salt?

No salt, this time, it was an afterthought, oopsie poopsies.

Fresh orange was grated and squeezed over the concoction to give it a light, tangy flavor.
I'm not sure at what step this was done. 
I'm not observant that way.

IIRC I tried to use my muscles to make juice once I was happy with how cooked the veggies were, shaved off some rind for zest too.  Little corn starch for thickness too!

Vegetables were chopped and sauteed in low-sodium chicken broth. 
Lou chopped brocolli, carrots, water chesnuts, onions, and bean sprouts.

Various seasonings were added. 
After the vegetables had softened, Lou added the salmon.

Noodles were boiled and once softened, added to the mix.
There was some stirring and some seasoning involved.

And then I was handed this!

A Salmon - Thai Noodle success!

 Seconds were definitely had.

And thirds.
What she isn't telling you: we stood around the bowl of leftovers going spoonful for spoonful.  

Thanks for stopping by!
Stay Classy!

Do you use any good marinades?
Do you have a good recipe for an Asian/Thai inspired marinade?
I'm in the market for a good peanut-sauce recipe, does anyone have one?


  1. Hi, thanks for visiting my blog. I'm going to post the pavlova recipe because I've had so many from the USA be interested in it and I know it's not a traditional dessert over there. I love Thai food and this looks delicious. I can understand when you say you had seconds!

  2. This looks delicious! Thanks for visiting my blog. As you saw I made salmon with herbs and sweet red wine and I can tell you it was awesome! I will be visiting again! Have a great weekend!
