For a lunch or light dinner with plenty of Japanese punch, look no further than this seafood noodle salad recipe. Able to be prepared in just 10 minutes, this recipe beautifully combines the full-bodied umami flavours of different varieties of seafood with the sharper savoury flavours of the Japanese dressing. This salad is best enjoyed cold in the warmer spring or summer days.
Prepare your salad ingredients. Slice the salmon and octopus. Boil the ramen noodles according to the package instructions, rinse in cold water, and drain. Tear the lettuce leaves by hand and set aside.
Whisk the dressing ingredients together. Feel free to add more oil, soy sauce, or vinegar as per your tastes.
Assemble the ingredients in a serving bowl and drizzle the dressing on top. Serve chilled.
- Feel free to use any pre-made dressing that you like instead of making your dressing to make this even easier. - Feel free to make a larger sized salad for parties. We list this as a single serving so just multiply the ingredients by the amount of people you want to serve. - You can use other seafood if you prefer. We suggest cooked squid or scallops.
