  • Give your salmon an extra burst of flavour with this quick and easy recipe. Marinate the salmon in Chinese Five Spice for an oriental taste


    • 250g (8oz) salmon fillet
    • Salt and ground black pepper
    • 2 pinches of Chinese Five Spice powder
    • 1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
    • 2 spring onions, trimmed and sliced
    • 1 small red pepper, deseeded and sliced
    • 125g (4oz) sugar-snap peas, ends trimmed
    • 2 tbsp light soy sauce
    • 2 tsp sesame oil to serve:
    • 125g (4oz) dried egg noodles,
    • 2 tbsp teriyaki sauce
    • Thickly cut lime slices
    • 2 x 30cm (12in) sheets of baking parchment


    • Set the oven to Gas Mark 6 or 200°C. Cut the salmon into 2 triangular-shaped pieces and put in the middle of each sheet of baking parchment. Season with salt, pepper and Five Spice.

    • Sprinkle the garlic, spring onions, red pepper and sugar snaps on top. Drizzle with soy sauce and sesame oil.

    • Fold the baking parchment over and fold in the ends to make a parcel. Bake on a baking tray for 15 mins.

    • Meanwhile, put the noodles into a large ovenproof dish and pour 900ml (1½ pints) boiling water over them. Cover with foil and put into the oven for 10 mins, to soften.

    • Drain the noodles and toss them with the teriyaki sauce. Serve with the salmon parcels and lime slices.
