Honey Seared Salmon with Coriander Noodles

All summer I was bragging to my friends about moving out to Vancouver, particularly about all the fresh seafood I would eat! Being here, I keep forgetting to cook it! I guess since it is not a huge part of my current cooking repertoire I just haven’t thought about it too much.. You would think seeing the ocean every day would be a reminder..? Anyways, my aunt and I have made a new goal to cook seafood at least twice a week! It is so healthy- and living on a coast it is hard to pass up the freshness. My aunt cooked this delicious meal for us last night and OMG it was so good. Donna Hay is one of her favourites, and I can see why with this amazing recipe! Enjoy!

2 salmon fillets
2 tbsp honey
cracked black pepper

1 package rice noodles
1.2 cup coriander leaves
1/3 cup shredded mint leaves
1/3 cup basil leaves, halved
2 zucchinis, shredded
1 tbsp lime juice
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp honey
2/3 cup roasted tomatoes (optional)

Cook noodles according to package directions, drain and let cool. Combine noodles with coriander, mint, basil, zucchini, tomatoes, lime juice, soy sauce and honey.

Cut salmon into 2 cm wide strips, toss with honey and pepper. Heat in a non-stick frying pan over high heat for 1 minute on each side, or until honey is golden.
