  1. To make sure everything is ready at the same time, prep all your vegetables before you start. Mix together the chilli sauce, honey, sesame oil and garlic in a ramekin or small bowl and set aside.
  2. Place a pot of water on an element over a high heat. Once it is boiling, turn to medium and add the broccoli. Cook for approximately 5 minutes, then drain and set aside with the other vegetables.
  3. Add the vegetables to a hot wok with 2 tablespoons of water. Drizzle the soy sauce over the vegetables. Stir fry for around 8-10 minutes.
  4. While the vegetables are cooking, heat a teaspoon of oil in a non stick pan over a medium heat. Once hot, add the salmon fillet, skin side down. Drizzle half the chilli sauce mixture over the salmon. After 4 minutes, flip and cook for another four minutes. Flip again and drizzle with the remaining chili sauce mixture and heat for another couple of minutes. Top with sesame seeds.
  5. Cook the noodles according to instructions on the packet, they only take around 4 minutes!
  6. To serve: Plate up the noodles and top with the stir fried vegetables. Sprinkle with the cashew nuts. Add the salmon and serve with some chopped chives and a squeeze of lemon juice.
