Salmon and Soba noodles

This is a Donna Hay recipe.
It is a HUGE favorite in our house. It's FAST, easy and Delicious.

Salmon & soba noodles with mirin dressing

(10 oz) about 2 bunches of soba noodles
1 1/2 salmon fillets, skin removed
1/4 cup coriander (cilantro) leaves
salt & cracked pepper

Mirin dressing:
2-3 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
2 teaspoons chopped pickled ginger
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons lemon juice
4 tablespoons mirin
salt & cracked pepper

Mirin dressing: Place sesame seeds, ginger, soy, lemon, mirin, salt & pepper in a bowl and stir to combine. Set aside;

Place noodles in a medium saucepan of boiling water and cook until ready. Soba noodles are quick, and should take about 3-5 minutes. Drain and set aside;
Brush the salmon with oil and sprinkle with salt & pepper. Heat a medium saucepan and cook salmon to your liking;
Place the noodles and half the mirin dressing in a bowl and toss to coat. Divide the noodles between bowls and top with fresh cilantro.

Serve salmon over noodles. top with veggie, sauce, sesame seeds and fresh cilantro.

We like to also add a veggie. usually stir fried zuchhini....

Are the soba noodles a side dish to the salmon, or is the salmon mixed in?
