Introduction

A quick and easy meal. Add any other veggies you want for higher number of vegetable servings. You may need to increase the dressing a bit if you do though.

The sodium is high due to the ingredients listed not being low sodium options and the salmon being canned. You can rinse the salmon to cut back on sodium or cook fresh salmon in advance. Using low sodium options for the soy sauce is also a good alternative.

Ingredients

    Approximately 170 grams of dried whole wheat spaghetti
    (you want 1.5 cups when cooked)

    1/2 small carrot (if that)
    2 tbsp cilantro, fresh, chopped

    Dressing (approximate, make to taste)
    1 tbsp soy sauce
    1 tsp fish sauce
    1 tbsp sesame oil
    1 tbsp rice or cidar vinegar
    one clove garlic, minced
    1/4 tsp ginger ground

    1 can Sockeye Salmon

Directions

Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt in water.

In the meantime, mix dressing by wisking together the dressing ingredients in a small bowl. I suggest starting with half of each ingredient and adding the rest to taste.

Shred carrot using a vegetable peeler to get approximately 1/2 a cup (more if desired but that's what was used for nutritional info). Chop 2 tbls of cilantro.

Drain pasta and toss with the carrot and cilantro. Add the dressing and toss well. Drain the can of salmon (rinse if sodium is an issue for you) and toss with pasta as well.

If desired, sesame seeds can also be sprinkled on top, however, they are not included in the nutritional information.
