lemony salmon noodles

Unless noted, each recipe makes 1 serving and assumes you packed salt, pepper, and oil/butter.


  • 2 oz. chunk smoked salmon
  • 3 oz. wide egg noodles (the wider, the better)
  • ½ lemon


Bring 2 cups of salted water to a boil in a medium pot, add noodles, and reduce heat to simmer, partially covering pot. When noodles are tender (about 7 minutes), drain completely and stir in 1-2 Tbsp oil or butter. Flake salmon into noodles (bigger flakes are better). Squeeze lemon over noodles just before eating.
