I am so pleased to be working once again with The Saucy Fish Co. I love their products for a quick, easy and delicious meal any time of year!
Today, I’m starting with their delicious Salmon with Chili, Lime and Ginger Dressing. This salmon is lovely on it’s own, served with the flavourful chili lime and ginger dressing, but today, I’m changing it up a bit and using it as the star in this lovely noodle salad. Full of vegetables, this salad comes together quickly and is a perfect, healthy, but hearty Summer meal.
For my salad, I started with udon noodles, as they require no boiling. Simply soak in boiling water, drain, rinse with cold water and use. For the vegetables, I chose carrots, cabbage, cucumber and edamame. The edamame soaks in boiling water alongside the noodles, so again, no boiling needed. And the best part is that all of the salad fixings can be prepared while the salmon bakes up in the oven.
I love the cooking package that comes with The Saucy Fish Co. fish. Just pop the frozen fillets in the package, place on a baking sheet and bake. The fish comes out perfectly every time! Enjoy it as is, or use it as the star of so many creative dishes in your kitchen.
Look for The Saucy Fish Co. Salmon with Chili, Lime and Ginger Dressing in with the frozen fish case at Loblaws, Zehrs, Dominion, Independent Grocers, Fortinos or Valu-mart. To learn more and explore all the great products on The Saucy Fish Co. Website.

Cook’s Notes for Chili Lime Salmon Noodle Salad
You may have more dressing than you need for your salad. Use as much or as little as you need to moisten your noodles and vegetables.
For the udon noodles, you can start with shelf stable, fresh or frozen. Simply soak in boiling water for 3-5 minutes, or until softened, then rinse under cold running water. Drain well before using.
Adjust the amount of Chili Garlic Sauce to your taste for heat. Look for Chili Garlic Sauce in with the Asian sauces at your grocery store.
