We adore The Saucy Fish Co frozen range and so we always have some in the freezer. They take the fuss out of fish when you’re in a rush and they leave hardly any dishes to clean! In our opinion, the less work there is to do the better!

Salmon is one of our favourite kinds of fish… In fact, we’d even go so far as to say that it’s our absolute favourite fish as it’s super versatile and pairs really well with Asian flavours without overwhelming the fish.

If you’d prefer, you could swap out the egg noodles in this Ginger, Chilli and Lime Salmon Noodles for a vegetable substitute like courgetti – just remember to adjust the nutritional values accordingly!

Just wondering about the lime! Its not on the ingrediant list or mentioned in the method. I am going to give this recipe a whirl and add a splash just before serving. I have had great success with your other recipes. Thanks so much

    Hi Mairead, thanks for letting us know. The salmon in the ingredients list should say ‘ 1 pack of Saucy Fish Co. Salmon with Chilli, Lime and Ginger Dressing’. The lime you were wondering about is in the sachet of sauce that comes with the fish which is why it’s not in the ingredients list or method. We have updated the recipe, thankyou for pointing this out.

I love the sound of this dish and want to try it but I live in Spain and can’t get the fish with the chilli sauce, so I was wondering if you could give me a recipe that I can substitute it with.
