4. Easy to Prepare Salmon Noodles

This recipe is my simplest salmon noodle recipe.

With another recipe for salmon noodles I will show you the different variations of salmon noodles made from smoked salmon or fresh salmon.  

Asian salmon noodles can be found in another recipe.

Here are my professional cooking tips for the quick preparation of fresh salmon.

Fresh salmon goes better with lemon sauce, so we leave the smoked salmon in the fridge.

Let the onions sweat in the pot for about 10 minutes at moderate heat, together with the bay leaf this gives the special taste. Add a little garlic to the sauce, this should contribute a light and excellent taste. Rub a little lemon rind into the sauce, carefully adjust the taste, add lemon juice. Poach the salmon in the sauce. Do not boil the pasta until the lemon sauce (without salmon) is ready.
