Soba noodles, salmon & prawns: Eat by Nigel Slater
- 200g soba noodles
- 1 red chilli
- 1 tablespoon ground nut oil
- 450g salmon
- 250g large, peeled prawns
- 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon fish sauce
- 2 tablespoons chopped chives
- handful of torn coriander
Bring a large pan of water to the boil and salt generously. Add the noodles and boil for 6 mins. Drain and cool under running water.
Cut the salmon into finger-thick strips. Finely slice a red chilli, but leave the seeds in – you want some heat in this dish.
Put a large wok over a very hot flame, leave for a second, pour in the tablespoon of ground nut oil, swirl it round, then add the salmon and large peeled prawns. Add the finely sliced chilli.
Drop in the partially cooked noodles, continue to stir and fry. The salmon may break up a bit but no matter.
Add a tablespoon of dark soy sauce and one of fish sauce, the chives and coriander. Sizzle briefly and serve.
