  • 2 85-g pkgs ramen noodles , seasoning packets omitted
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp canola oil , divided
  • 1 tbsp minced ginger
  • 1 garlic clove , minced

  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 skin-on salmon fillets

  • BOIL a kettle of water. Pour water over ramen noodles in a medium bowl. Stir often, until noodles are soft, 3 to 4 min. Drain and rinse well with cold water. Toss with sesame oil.
  • HEAT a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high. Add 1 tbsp canola oil, then minced ginger, garlic clove and trimmed snow peas. Cook, stirring often, until snow peas are tender-crisp, about 2 min. Add to noodles. Drizzle with lemon juice and salt. Toss to coat. Transfer to a platter and cover with foil to keep warm.
