Miso-Glazed Chicken With Noodle





Fairly quick to put together and pretty tasty. I imagine any meat would go great with the noodles. Excellent recipe that my entire family enjoyed- picky eaters included. Awesome recipe! Super delicious and easy. I don't normally have miso paste around but it's definitely worth buying!


Ingredients




  • 2 tablespoons of white miso paste
  • 3 tablespoons of honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil
  • 500 g of chicken breast fillets, halved horizontally to form cutlets
  • 200 g of dried noodles
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 zucchini
  • 1/4 cup of pickled ginger
  • 1 tablespoon of lime juice
  • Thinly sliced green onion
  • Toasted sesame seeds, to serve



Preparation

Combine miso, honey, cloves garlic, freshly ground black pepper, salt and sesame oil in a bowl. Add chicken. Turn to coat. Cover and set aside for 20 minutes.
Heat a greased barbecue hotplate or grill on medium-high heat. Add chicken. Cook for 5 minutes each side or until cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Cover loosely with foil to keep warm.



Cook noodles following packet directions. Drain. Rinse under cold water. Set aside to cool.

Meanwhile, using a peeler, cut carrot and zucchini into thin ‘noodles’ Place in a large bowl. Add noodles and the ginger. Toss to combine. Combine lime juice and oil in a small bowl. Add dressing to the salad. Toss gently to combine.

Garlic and Rosemary Roasted Salmon





This is my first grilled salmon recipe this year, and it certainly won’t be the last. Roasted Salmon is the fresh and tasty dish and it is perfect for your next party.



This is very easy and simple dish. It is the perfect heart-healthy dish as it’s high in omega-3 fatty acids and also offers anticoagulant properties from the garlic that may help to improve blood flow.

Ingredients: 

  • 6 salmon filets
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1/3 cup chopped shallots
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/3 cup of red cooking wine
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon of sea salt
  • pinch of fresh ground black pepper
  • fresh lemon wedges for squeezing over the top, optional
Preparation:


Allow salmon to rest at room temperature for 20 minutes prior to roasting. Preheat oven to 200° C

In a medium saucepan, saute the shallots and garlic in the olive oil until tender, about 3 minutes.Add the remaining ingredients (except the salmon) to the pot and bring to a boil. Let the simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring often, until has thickened. Remove from heat.



Place the salmon skin-side down on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Evenly top each fillet with preparing glaze. Bake for 10 to 20 minutes, or until salmon flakes easily with a fork.



Serve hot, with fresh lemon wedges for squeezing over the top if desired.
