fish fillet with citrus soy sauce and soba noodles

 

Citrus-Soy Fish with Soba Noodles

I love using halibut or salmon fillets for this dish. Your timing really depends on how thick your fish is. If you are using fish 1/2" thick, you'll cook 2 minutes each side. For thicker fish, like a salmon steak, it might take an additional minute or two on the second side.

Ingredients
  

  • 6 ounces dried soba noodles or substitute with your favorite Asian noodle or pasta, like angel hair.
  • 4 fillets fish like salmon, halibut, sea bass, etc.
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter divided

Citrus Soy Sauce

  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

Instructions
 

  • Cook the soba noodles in generously salted water, according to the package instructions. Drain, and set aside.
  • While the noodles are cooking, Combine the sauce ingredients in a small sauce pan, and simmer until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes.
  • Season fish with salt and pepper on both sides.
  • Heat a large frying pan over medium high heat. When the pan is hot, add the cooking oil and just 1 tablespoon of the butter. Add the fish fillets. Cook for 2 minutes, or until a nice, golden crust forms on the fish. Flip, reduce the heat and cook until fish is just about cooked through. Remove the fish to a plate to rest.
  • In the frying pan, spoon out the cooking oil and discard. You can also use a paper towel and tongs (or chopstick) to mop and wipe out the cooking oil. Return the pan to medium-high heat and add in the remaining butter.
  • When butter is bubbling, add in the soba noodles and the sauce. Snuggle the fish back into the pan and let cook for 30 seconds to warm everything through.
