Salmon Buckwheat Noodle Bowl

Ingredients
1 1/4
pounds fresh or frozen skinless salmon fillet, about 1 inch thick
1/4
cup olive oil
1/4
cup balsamic vinegar
1
tablespoon cracked black pepper
1/2
pound buckwheat (soba) noodles or whole wheat noodles
1/3
cup orange juice
2
oranges, peeled, sectioned, and chopped
1
clove garlic, minced
1/2
red onion, chopped or 2 green onions, thinly sliced
2
teaspoons anise seed, crushed

Directions

  1. Thaw salmon, if frozen. Combine 1 tablespoon each of the olive oil and balsamic vinegar and the cracked pepper in a 2-quart baking dish. Place fish in the mixture, turning to coat both sides. Marinate at room temperature for 10 minutes.
  2. Place salmon on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 4 inches from the heat for 4 to 6 minutes per 1/2-inch thickness of fish or just until fish flakes, turning once.
  3. Meanwhile, cook buckwheat noodles in boiling water in a large saucepan for 4 minutes (or whole wheat noodles for 8 to 10 minutes) until just slightly chewy. Drain; place in a large bowl. Add remaining oil and vinegar, the orange juice and orange sections, garlic, onion, and anise seed; toss to coat. To serve, divide the noodle mixture among four dinner bowls. Top each serving with a piece of salmon. Makes 4 servings.
