This is a light, flavorful and healthy meal that will leave you feeling good. The salmon marinade is delicious in many other dishes too! Be sure to use gluten-free soy sauce (tamari) and to buy 100% buckwheat soba noodles to keep this dish gluten-free. I like King Soba 100% Buckwheat Noodles.


For the salmon:

  • 1/3 cup tamari (gluten-free soy sauce)
  • zest of 1 lime
  • juice of 1 lime (about 1-2 tablespoons)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons ginger, grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 3-4 salmon filets

For the stiry-fry sauce:

  • 1/3 cup tamari (gluten-free soy sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sriracha or 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

For the soba noodle stir-fry:

  • 8oz soba noodles
  • 1-2 tablespoons coconut oil (or cooking oil of choice)
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, grater
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 scallions, white and green parts sliced
  • 4oz sliced shiitake or cremini mushrooms
  • 1/2 red pepper, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups shredded green cabbage


  1. Whisk together all the ingredients for the salmon marinade. Place the salmon, skin-side up, in the marinade and let sit in the refrigerator for 30 minutes-4 hours. Preheat the oven to 400F. Pour off the marinade, flip the salmon then bake the salmon for 15 minutes (about 10 minutes per inch thick). Once cooked, remove the skin.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the soba noodles in boiling water for 2-4 minutes. (Don’t overcook – check them at 2 minutes.) Rinse with cool water to stop the cooking. You may need to rinse the noodles again to get them to loosen up if they sit for a bit while you make the stir-fry.
  3. Whisk together the ingredients for the stir-fry sauce, set aside.
  4. In a large skillet, heat the coconut oil over medium heat. Add the ginger, garlic, and scallions. Cook for 1 minute until fragrant, then add the mushrooms. Cook for 2-3 minutes then add the red pepper. Cook for another 3-4 minutes then add the noodles and cabbage. Add the stir-fry sauce and toss to combine, using tongs if needed. Cook until the noodles are hot and the cabbage is slightly wilted.
  5. Serve topped with the salmon. Enjoy!
