From the Test Kitchen

Our seared salmon and noodle salad are livened up with an umami-packed sauce, made simply with sweet white miso and mirin (a sweetened Japanese rice wine). Springy fresh lo mein noodles mingle deliciously with crisp cucumber, scallions, and cherry tomatoes (yours may be yellow or red). A garnish of fresh cilantro rounds out the dish on an herbaceous note.

1 Prepare the ingredients:

Heat a large pot of salted water to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the cucumber, leaving alternating strips of skin intact. Halve lengthwise; using a spoon, scoop out and discard the seeds. Thinly slice the cucumber crosswise. Place in a large bowl. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice on an angle. Halve the tomatoes. Roughly chop the cilantro leaves and stems.

4 Cook the noodles:

To the pot of boiling water, add the noodles (carefully separating with your hands before adding). Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until tender. Drain thoroughly and rinse under cool water for 30 seconds to 1 minute to prevent sticking and stop the cooking process.

Cook, occasionally spooning the sauce over the salmon, 1 to 2 minutes, or until coated and cooked to your desired degree of doneness. Top the bowls of finished noodles with the cooked fillets and sauce. Garnish with the cilantro. Enjoy!
