Salmon Bowl With Noodles, Mushrooms, And Spinach

I love spinach, barely cooked, in a noodle bowl. Add in salmon, mushrooms, noodles and vegetable stock and you have a wholesome meal for the entire family.

Use either bunch spinach from the farmersโ€™ market or baby spinach for this recipe. Best of all, this healthy and nutritious meal takes very little time to prep and cook.

โ€ข 6 cups kombu stock, chicken stock or vegetable stock (organic preferably)
โ€ข 16 ounces Japanese soba noodles, cooked and tossed with 2 teaspoons sesame oil
โ€ข 8 fresh shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and thinly sliced (simmer stems in stock for 20 minutes, remove them and discard), or 8 cremini mushrooms, trimmed and thinly sliced
โ€ข 16 ounces salmon fillet without skin, trimmed of fat and cut into 4 equal pieces
โ€ข 1 large bunch spinach, stemmed, washed in 2 changes of water and coarsely chopped (about 6 cups) or 1 6-ounce bag baby spinach, rinsed
โ€ข 1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced, light and dark green parts kept separate Cilantro leaves and sprigs for garnish
โ€ข Soy sauce (low sodium) or kosher salt to taste


1. Bring the stock to a simmer. Taste and adjust seasoning, adding soy sauce or salt if desired. If the noodles have been refrigerated, warm them by placing them in a strainer and dipping the strainer into the simmering broth. Then distribute the noodles among 4 deep soup bowls.

2. Add the sliced mushroom caps, the salmon fillets, the spinach and the white and light green parts of the scallions to the simmering stock. Cover and turn off the heat. Allow to sit for 5 minutes without removing the cover. The salmon should be just cooked through. Leave it a little longer if you want it more opaque.

3. Place a piece of salmon on top of the noodles in each bowl. Ladle in the soup, taking care to distribute the spinach, mushrooms and scallions evenly. Sprinkle on the dark green parts of the scallions, garnish with cilantro and serve.
