In a saucepan, bring the soy sauce, sake, mirin (or rice wine vinegar) and ginger to the boil and let it simmer. Reduce gently until there’s about 150ml (¼pt) left (about 15 minutes). Pour some over the salmon.
Heat a non-stick frying pan until very hot, then add the salmon and cook for 2 minutes or until the colour has changed three-quarters of the way up the salmon. Turn the fish fillets over and turn off the heat.
Meanwhile, heat a wok until really hot, then add the oils. Toss the pepper and spring onions together for 2 to 3 minutes or until beginning to soften and colour. Add the soya beans, noodles and left over yakitori sauce and toss to heat through. Spoon the noodles into 4 bowls, top with the salmon fillets and sprinkle with the coriander and sesame seeds. Serve with extra soy sauce on the side.
Top Tip for making Stir-Fry Salmon Yakitori
This sauce also works well with chicken, so why not make a double batch? With chicken, it’s better to marinate it overnight. Rice wine vinegar is mild and slightly sweet-tasting. Mixed with a squeeze of fresh lime juice, a dash of dried chilli flakes and a little fish sauce, you have an excellent fat-free salad dressing.
