About this Recipe Makeover

Traditional packaged ramen or noodle soups are high in sodium and low in overall nutrition. Although their labels often state that the noodles are for two servings, one package is easily consumed as a full serving.

Asian Noodles with Poached Alaska Salmon is a lower-sodium noodle dish that adds protein with healthy omega-3-fats, vegetables and flavor.

  • 4 Alaska Salmon fillets (about 4 oz each), fresh, thawed or frozen
  • 2 cup water
  • 2 packages (about 6 oz each) Asian soup bowl entrées, any flavor

Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska Salmon under cold water; pat dry with a paper towel.

Add water and seasoning/dry vegetable mix from soup bowls to large pan. Bring to boil; turn off heat. Add salmon, skin side down; return heat to simmer. Cover pan tightly and cook 5 minutes.

Add sauce packets, noodles and vegetables; drizzle with soy sauce. Cover pan tightly and cook an additional 2 to 4 minutes for frozen salmon or 1 to 2 minutes for fresh/thawed fish. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.
