I still cannot believe we are into 2015 already (the rate at which time flies is so scary!!).
Like most people, I am ready for a fresh start to the new year. I have a new home, new goals and tons of new foods that I cannot wait to try out in 2015. Last year one of my goals was to try to simplify my recipes. Meaning not so many ingredients and I think I did semi-ok. This year I am planning on doing the same, BUT at the same time I want to venture even further out of my comfort zone and try foods new to me.
Foods from other cultures and regions of the world. New foods keep me excited and on my toes. They help me to learn about new flavors and what works…and what doesn’t. I would SO love to hear from you guys about what kinds of recipes you might want to see. I put a shout out on Facebook last week, but I think everyone was still in a holiday daze because I only got a few responses. So please tell me, what do you want to be eating this year?
I know we are only 5 days in, but so far the year has been pretty good. We have had snow, time with family, but also some business. Even though I am living in the barn, work is still going on. Honestly, I moved in WAY too early. The only room that is really complete is the kitchen and it’s really not even complete. I am still missing the hood above my range, light plates over the light switches, my ice maker needs to be hooked up and the paint needs to be finished. Nothing super major, so it totally works for me. Oh but um – my ovens? Yeah, they of course are already having issues. Seriously, all ovens HATE me with a passion. I swear, I am cursed.
They work, but you have to do all this stuff to get them to work. It’s too hard to explain in a post, but Jimbo the appliance guy is already scheduled to come out. Ya hoo!
I PROMISE to write some posts about the barn within the week (probably over the weekend) and include photos, words and my thoughts on the choices I made. I took a bunch of pictures on Sunday, but you guys, I have to warn you that nothing is finished. Just gotta throw that out there.
So, most of our family left on Sunday, but I think we are still trying to recover and catch up a bit from the holidays. Is it the same for you guys? The last two weeks just flew by. We all tried to fit in way too much and now that January is here, I am ready for some organization and cleanliness….UGH, wait a second? Cleanliness? Yeah, right I am living in a full on construction zone. I clean the dust-up at night and it’s back again in the morning. What?!?! Oh I can’t wait until the barn is all finished and pretty.
Soon enough, soon enough. Gotta think positive thoughts. Positive thoughts…Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming, just keep swimming.
I had to. Sorry. Not sorry.
Ok, ok. Let’s finally talk about this delish Sake and Ginger Soba Noodle Salmon Stir Fry.
I’m going with the fresh theme here today I made us a super simple 30-minute, HEALTHY as can be meal. It really does not get better than this bowl of noodles right here. It’s packed to the brim with healthy proteins, fats and fiber filled carbs and… it’s even cheese-less and gluten-free. Honestly, I didn’t know I had a meal like this in me. Whoa. See, I told you I wanted to start the year out fresh!
AND it is so easy to make. It’s takes maybe 30 minutes start to finish and, assuming your family eats seafood, everyone will love it. I made this while all of our family was here. My cousins all eat fish, so this was gone so fast that my dad didn’t even get to try any. I have to say, I was a little bummed because he loves salmon. Oh well, I guess this means I will be making it again very soon.
Even though this is a bright and healthy meal, it’s still super cozy and perfect for these winter nights. I mean, hello warm soba noodles!
Oh, oh! And then you can pack up the leftovers (if there is any) and take them to work the next day. I mean, you can even eat them cold. I never would because I am crazy for hot food (especially in the cold!), but if that’s your thing, go for it.
But really, nothing is better than an easy dinner that doubles as the next days lunch too. Yes and yes!!
And finally? Don’t you just love these colors? I mean it’s mid winter and we can still get gorgeous, colorful and flavor filled packed food. Eating winter’s best fruits and vegetables!

And now? Can it just be noodle time already? Yes, please!
Thought I’d put a recent review on this recipe. I really liked it, and used edamame noodles instead of soba because that’s what I had…great balance of veggies, proteins, and carbs for a post-run dinner. Easy, and used ingredients I had on hand. Definitely toast the sesame seeds and cashews before you start with the veggies and the noodles.
I also added some salt at the end. So good! Good Oldie but goodie Tieghan!
Awesome!! I am thrilled to hear that this recipe was a winner, thanks a bunch for making it! xTieghan
Hi there, I loved the taste of this recipe – I decided to also add in some Pak Choi and Bean sprouts. It was gorgeous! I was just also wondering about the noodles – my packet was 8oz and says serves three, so I’m confused how 3 oz would serve 4. Sorry if I’m being dim! Xx
He Ellie! We must be using different noodles! This will serve about 4 people. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I am so glad love this recipe! Thank you!! xTieghan
I know this is a super old post but I am going to make this tonight and dont have Sake. Is it still good without it?
I am sure it will be fine minus the sake. Please let me know if you have other questions. Hope you love this recipe! Thanks! 🙂
Hi! I love the sound of this recipe; I just wanted to ask how many people it serves?
This serves about 4. Please let me know if you have other questions. Hope you love this recipe! Thanks! 🙂
soooo good! I have seriously loved every recipe I’ve made of yours. Your website is my go-to for making something special. So I made this recipe with a few substitutions- I didnt have cashews on hand so threw some halved honey sesame almonds (from Trader Joes) in there and I got confused on where you were supposed to actually save the marinade that you pour out. I poured it into the trash (oops)! Maybe consider changing the wording so no one makes the same mistake. Also, is it one package of soba noodles that is one ounce? or one package (mine was 12oz)?
Hey Casey!! So sorry for the confusion with this recipe, it is all fixed now. Thanks so much for all the kind words. Flattered you love my recipes!
Made it for dinner last night and… it was scrumptious! Thank you for great recipe!
So happy you liked it Karina! Thank you!
