salmon rosti noodles.

Salmon Rosti Recipe

Happy Chinese New Year - 2016 the Year of the Monkey! I love creating Chinese inspired recipes and this one is no different. It actually came about by accident when I only had one salmon fillet and wanted to make it stretch into a noodle dish to use some stir fry veg, mushrooms, coriander and spring onions. To make the salmon work for two meals, I used a large potato to make some delicious Chinese style salmon rostis to go with vegetable noodles. Can you believe one salmon fillet yielded four rostis? A recipe I'll make again and again for sure.

Shopping list.
(Serves two)
For the salmon rosti
♥ One salmon fillet
♥ One large potato, around 200g
♥ 2 spring onions, chopped
♥ One garlic clove, crushed
♥ 1 tsp chilli flakes
♥ 2 tsp soy sauce
♥ One free range egg

For the noodles
♥ 120g noodles
♥ Stir fry vegetables of your choice
♥ 1 tbsp sesame oil
♥ 1 tbsp oyster sauce
♥ 2 tsp sesame seeds
♥ 2 spring onions
♥ One garlic clove, crushed
♥ Chilli flakes to serve
♥ Fresh coriander to serve

Equipment; grater, frying pan, metal food rings, wok.

Step one. Wrap your salmon fillet in foil and bake on 180 degrees for 20 minutes.

Step two. Meanwhile grate your potato - even better if you can do this on a grater attachment in a food processor for speed. Wrap in a tea towel and squeeze over the sink to drain out the liquid.

Step three. When your salmon is cooked, bring all the ingredients together to make the rosti batter.

Step four. Warm up your frying pan with a little oil and spread the rosti mixture in the rings. After 5 minutes, carefully remove the ring and flip over. Move across in the pan to make room for more rostis. (I have to do this as I only have two food rings but the mixture makes four!) Repeat.

Step five. At the same time, cook your noodles as per the packet and bring together the noodles with vegetables and sauces in a wok.

Step six. The noodles and rosti should be ready at about the same time - bring together and serve with a scattering of sesame seeds, coriander and chilli flakes.

  1. What a wonderful way to use up leftovers, we always have a rogue potato in the fridge that I never know what to do with! I'll have to give these a go :)

  5. What a completely brilliant and frugal way of using salmon - I love a good rosti and do not make often enough. My girls would devour those noodles just on their own too!
