Salmon Noodle Stir-Fry

Stir-fry’s are so quick and easy! Although, as the name suggests, the meal is fried, if you are using a non-stick frying pan, little oil is needed and the results are lean and healthy. This recipe uses rice noodles that are naturally gluten free but you could substitute with egg noodles (these take a little longer to cook) should you wish. Two portions of salmon are more than enough for three children in this recipe but as the salmon is chopped up, it can be stretched further by adding more veg.

  1. Oh I wish I would have read this before making salmon the other night. I made mine with brown rice and the leftover veggies from the week. Still tasty but I will have to remember this recipe for next time. I love those thin noodles. Thanks for linking up with #momsterlink :))
