Orange Salmon with Noodles
pounds fresh or frozen skinless salmon fillet, about 1 inch thick
cup olive oil
cup balsamic vinegar
tablespoon cracked black pepper
pound buckwheat (soba) or whole wheat noodles
cup orange juice
oranges, peeled, sectioned, and chopped
clove garlic, minced
teaspoons anise seed, crushed
Fresh fennel leaves (optional)
- Thaw fish, if frozen. In a 2-quart baking dish combine 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, 1 tablespoon of the balsamic vinegar, and the cracked pepper. Place fish in the mixture; turn to coat both sides. Marinate at room temperature for 10 minutes.
- Measure thickness of fish. Place the fish on the unheated rack of a broiler pan; broil 4 inches from the heat just until fish flakes easily with a fork. (Allow 4 to 6 minutes per 1/2-inch thickness of fish.) Turn fish after half of broiling time.
- Meanwhile, in a large saucepan cook buckwheat noodles about 4 minutes or whole wheat noodles 8 to 10 minutes, or until just slightly chewy. Drain; place in a large bowl. Add remaining olive oil, remaining balsamic vinegar, orange juice, chopped orange, garlic, onion, and crushed anise seed; toss to coat. Divide noodle mixture among 4 dinner plates. Top each serving with a piece of salmon. Garnish each serving with fresh fennel leaves, if desired. Makes 4 servings.
