Boy oh boy, I made this salmon soba noodle bowl over the weekend and it was so delicious I had to share with you guys. If you haven’t heard of Half Baked Harvest you are seriously missing out. Her artisan crafted recipes are my go-to when I am entertaining or when I feel like being extra wifely.
I’ve been on a healthy kick lately (to keep things tight) and I’m always looking for ways to mix it up so it’s not bland and boring. This colorful, flavorful bowl is anything but monotonous. It’s bursting with flavor and texture that leaves you full and satisfied.
The real star of the show is the chili sauce. If you don’t make this recipe, I HIGHLY recommend saving this homemade chili sauce. It’s a mixture of sesame oil, ginger, garlic, lime juice, soy sauce, chili paste and honey. It’s the perfect marinade to keep in the fridge for your meal preps.
Plot twist, this recipe actually doubles down as a broth bowl. It’s not like a full on soup where you need a spoon, but just enough liquid where it compliments the spices of the bowl perfectly.

4. Remove the sweet potatoes from the oven. Arrange the salmon and bok choy around the potatoes. Spoon half of the chili sauce over the salmon. Transfer to the oven and roast for 10-15 minutes or until the salmon has reached your desired doneness. Spoon the remaining chili sauce over the veggies and salmon, gently tossing to combine.
5. Meanwhile, cook the soba noodles according to package directions. Drain. In a pot, bring the broth, rice vinegar, and remaining tablespoon of soy sauce to a boil over high heat. Keep warm.
6. To serve, divide the noodles, roasted veggies,
This is the perfect recipe to meal prep with. Just roast your veggies and salmon as directed and cook your noodles. Store everything in the fridge (together or keep separated, it doesn't matter) and then pack up for lunch (skipping the broth part) or rewarm as and easy no hassle, no mess dinner (i'd add the broth if you are making for dinner).
