recipe: soy salmon and noodles

After battling a pounding headache and eating next to nothing for two days I finally felt up to cooking. Unfortunately, the brutal humidity that’s been building for the past two days seems to be coming to a head, which means who wants to eat a hot and heavy meal. This is a variation on elements I previously put together in the Cold Sesame Noodles w/ Ginger Soy Salmon. Obviously, this can be served warm and would make a very nice dish, but cold was a perfect way to bring together flavors that were refreshing. For the noodles regular spaghetti pasta would work fine but feel free to experiment with different sizes and different textures (I used angel hair wheat, for example) as each will bring something different to the dish. Pick your veggies based on your personal taste, what you can get fresh and make sense with the flavor combos as you change them with your experiments. For today I had snap peas, onion and broccoli. For the tea, a black tea will work fine but you can, of course, switch it up to a chai spice or other flavors.
