Honey Garlic Salmon Soba Noodle Bowls. Best for nights when you’re craving a really delicious noodle bowl, but also looking for a cozy, healthy dinner. Caramelized salmon in a sweet and tangy honey garlic sauce with soy sauce and ginger. Served over creamy tahini soba noodles with roasted broccoli and brussels sprouts. It’s the perfect, simple and quick dinner with plenty of color and even more flavor.

If there’s one food I really don’t make enough of, it’s seafood. For years there have been only a small handful of people in my family that would eat fish. The rest passed on anything from the sea. So I’ve always cooked much more pasta and meat than anything else.

But that’s slowly starting to change. Not everyone enjoys fish, and I don’t think that will ever change. But a few of my brothers (including Creighton) will eat salmon, tuna, and shrimp. Red is a big sushi guy and Creighton enjoys it more for health purposes. But hey, it sure is a good start!

I’ve given up on my mom, but maybe we’ll get Asher to at least try seafood in a few years. Either way, with new fish eaters, I’m excited to be able to create more recipes like todays. It’s simple to make, so colorful, and even more delicious.

The details

When you look at the recipe, you might think it’s a little too step heavy, but don’t let that scare you. This actually comes together pretty quick and easy.

I start with the salmon. The sauce is just soy sauce (I like to use tamari, which is gluten free soy sauce), honey, ginger, and garlic. I add a little Gochujang for a nice tangy heat. Then, just put the salmon in the sauce and let it hang out while you prep everything else.

For the vegetables, I love to use broccoli and brussels sprouts. Just roast them on a sheet pan with oil, salt, and pepper. They don’t need to be fancy.

While all that’s happening, you’ll be working on the noodles. I used soba noodles, but honestly any noodles works. Toss the noodles in a creamy tahini sauce. For the the sauce, the key is to mix it with a little hot water to help thin out the tahini and make it perfect for tossing with the noodles.

The last step is to cook the salmon. Bake it in the oven in the sauce until it’s cooked to your liking. I cook mine for about 8 minutes. Then switch the oven to broil and let the sauce caramelize around the salmon.

Just be sure to watch close, the broiler works quickly. It will take perfectly glazed salmon to black salmon in seconds.

Serve it all up

Serve this bowl-style with the noodles on the bottom, then the salmon, veggies and extra sauce over the salmon. I throw in some pickled ginger, green onions, and lots of sesame seeds.


It’s all about the sticky sweet and tangy sauce and those creamy noodles. Delicious on their own, but so much better paired together. And yes, the family all agreed. My dad said this has been one of his favorite recipes in a long time, so that’s a real win.

My final words, double the recipe and save the leftovers for quick and easy lunches. Trust me you will be so happy you did!

    This is one of my favorites! I do feel like it requires a lot of dishes getting dirty, but it is so flavorful and worth it. I always cook my salmon on the longer end of the 5-15 minute range. Wonderful recipe though!

    I made this for dinner tonight. It was fantastic! I found the noodle sauce a little salty though so next time I’ll cut the tamari in half. Oh yes and drain the noodles well! This was a very big hit. ?

  6. Looking forward to making this! Any suggestions for substitutions for the tahini and chili paste? Those are ingredients we don’t have on hand.


    1. Hey Mackenzie,
      Both of those are a huge part of the sauce, I would recommend not skipping those:) Let me know if you give the recipe a try, I hope you love it! xx

    Soooo yummy! The soba sauce is super creamy and the honey garlic marinade is to die for! Our family grew up in the commercial salmon industry in British Columbia and we always have fresh fish on hand. The salmon sauce is very similar to our family recipe and makes an exceptional BBQ salmon. This is a repeat recipe

      We love this recipe! Made it 3x now and always yummy. I cook a veggie separate, tonight it was asparagus which was great with the salmon sauce drizzled over it. Used Udon noodles since no soba noodles were available.
