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!

    Hi, I love this recipe however I have a quick question, in the nutritional value, you’ve written 1150kcal per serving, I was wondering why that would be the case? Can you explain that a bit better? I’m trying to maintain a calorie goal so this is throwing me off balance

    1. Hi Sana,
      Happy Monday!! So glad to hear that this recipe turned out well for you, thanks so much for making it! I always recommend that if the nutritional information is important to you, you use your own personal calculator. Ours is automatic and controlled by google. It’s not something we’d prefer to be using. We are required to. I’m sorry for the trouble, we do our best! xT

    2. Yummy!! Don’t forget the suggestion to make extra for leftovers – perfection!
      I kept the sauce serving veggies & used rice noodles. Family dinner night was a success, even with a 3 year old picky eater❤️

      1. Hi Susan! SO happy to hear you enjoyed this recipe! Thank you for trying it out, and have a cozy week! 🙂 xT

    This was a very fast and simple recipe but really delivered with a punch of flavor! I’m terrible because I have to mask the taste of the salmon somewhat when I eat it- it’s so healthy so I eat it often but admit it’s not my favorite food. This meal did the trick!

    1. Hey Lauren,
      Happy Monday!! I appreciate you making this recipe and sharing your review, so glad to hear it turned out well for you! xx

  4. Hello! When you say to drizzle sauce on the veggies, do you mean the sauce you tossed the noodles in (is there extra, do I hold some back?), or to hold back some of the marinade for the salmon? This sounds delicious-I just want to make sure I understand the directions 🙂 Thank you, Tieghan!

    1. Hi Jody,
      Any extra sauce you have on the pan from the baking sheet is what your can drizzle over the veggies:) Please let me know if you have any other questions! xx

    A bit too salty. I’m going to tone down the soy sauce for the next round, but I will definitely try it again. Love the idea to add Gochujang to the marinade.

    Hello, we’ve been eating more and more fish of late and more green veggies; as healthy as we try to be, we still get sick around here; it is cold with chills this past weekend and weekday; unsure when we’ll be well again. We’re medicine-ing up and praying for a quick recovery. Thank you for sharing this recipe; it is similar to the broccoli with carrots and fish that we stir fry but not while we’re sick. Must get better soon. Again, thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi there,
      Hope you all are feeling better soon! Let me know if you give this recipe a try, I hope you love it! xT

    1. Hey Tracy,
