Ingredients Needed To Make This Recipe

Ingredients needed to make this salmon. Everything is in bowls on a grey counter.
  • Salmon. I like to use organic salmon, wild caught is always best but you can use any salmon you have access to. If you can, try to be sure to get skinless salmon, it’s difficult to get the skin off the salmon and I don’t typically eat the skin with this recipe.
  • Teriyaki Sauce. You can make your own, or cut down on dishes and time and use a quality store bought brand. I like theTrader Joe’s Soy-aki. If you aren’t near a Trader Joes, try my recipe here, it’s VERY similar.
  • Seasoning. Salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, ground ginger.
  • Broccolini Or Baby Bok Choy. It’s hard to find baby bok choy near me, so I opt for broccolini. If you have access to baby bok choy, this is a great add in. You can also use mushrooms or sliced peppers as well.
  • Garlic & Onion. Both will be chopped and sautéed for aromatics and flavors to this dish.
  • Dried/Uncooked Ramen Noodles. Use your favorite brand, if it comes with a seasoning/sauce packet, save it for another dish or discard it. You will not need the ramen noodle flavor packet for this recipe.
  • Jalapeño. I like to add this for extra color and a little mild heat. This is optional.
  • Sriracha. This is option for a topping, but delicious.
  • Black sesame Seeds. For garnish, totally optional. You can find black and white sesame seeds in the international aisle by the soy sauce in most major grocery stores.

Recipe Variations

Protein: If you don’t want to use salmon, a halibut or cod would work great in place of the salmon.

Grain: Use soba noodles instead of ramen noodles if you would like.

Veggies: Use baby bok choy instead of broccolini. You can also use broccoli, or sliced bell peppers. Mushrooms also work well with this dish.

For Toppings: sriracha, avocado, green onions, cilantro and black sesame seeds all make great optional toppings for this meal.

Steps To Make Teriyaki Salmon Noodles

steps to make teriyaki salmon noodles, chopped veggies on a cutting board and marinated salmon in a glass bowl.

Step One. Start with slicing the salmon into 1 inch cubes, try to keep them equal sizes to ensure an even cook. Add cubed salmon and seasoning to a bowl, pour half of the teriyaki sauce over it and mix. Set it aside.

Step Two. Chop onion, jalapeño and garlic cloves. Discard the jalapeño seeds to keep this mild in flavor. Next, slice the broccolini into thin strips, the thinner the better to get them to wilt perfectly. If you are using baby bok choy, slice in half, length wise, and cut off the bitter ends of the leafs.

Step Three. Pour half of the oil in a large sauté pan and heat on medium/high heat. Once pan is hot, add broccolini and jalapeño, sauté for about 5 minutes. Next, add in onions and garlic sauté for another 3-5 minutes. Once everything is wilted and fragrant, place into a bowl and set aside.

Step Four. Start the water and cook the ramen noodles now. Wipe the sauté pan clean with a paper towel and add back to the heat, pour the rest of the oil in the pan. Add in the salmon cubes and leftover teriyaki sauce. Cook for about 8-10 minutes, 4 minutes on each side for the salmon or until salmon is cooked to desired doneness. Once salmon is finished cooking, move to the side into a clean bowl.

Step Five. Place sauté pan back onto the heat and add al dente ramen noodles. Pour the rest of the teriyaki sauce over the noodles and leave them alone without stirring for 60 seconds. Gently toss the noodles, add in the salmon and the veggies. Let it come to a simmer and remove from heat.

Step Six. Serve the teriyaki salmon ramen. Top with sriracha and sesame seeds if using. Enjoy!
