Spinach, salmon and miso broth

This Japanese-inspired broth celebrates sweet Japanese spinach (komatsuna) leaves, while the miso and ginger give it a healthy zing. We swear by it as a pick me up!

Serves 2

1 salmon fillet, skinned and cut into 2-inch pieces
½ tray of freshly cut Living Salads Komatsuna (Japanese spinach) – available in major retailers
knob of butter
1 pack cooked white rice noodles 
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
small piece of fresh ginger, grated or finely chopped 
1tsp white miso paste 
½ pint water 
​1tsp bouillon stock powder

Prepare the garlic and ginger and set aside.

Cut the spinach leaves and saute gently with the butter and garlic until just cooked. Set aside.

In a separate pan, bring the water to a slow simmer and add the salmon.

Add the ginger, miso and stock powder and stir gently, cover for 3-5 minutes while the salmon cooks through.

Lastly add the komatsuna spinach and rice noodles to heat through.

Serve with some freshly chopped coriander and freshly cut baby spinach leaves.
