Preparation

  1. Step 1 Make the sauce

    In a blender, combine the soy sauce, water, lime juice, sesame oil, honey, vinegar, garlic, ginger, hoisin sauce, and peanut butter. Blend until smooth.

  2. Step 2 Marinate the salmon

    Place the salmon fillets in a resealable plastic bag and pour one-third of the sauce over the salmon to coat. (Reserve the remaining sauce.) Seal and marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, begin preparing the rice noodles according to package directions.

  3. Step 3 Cook the salmon

    In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Remove the salmon fillets from the marinade, shaking off the excess, and place them in the hot skillet. Sear for 3 minutes, or until browned on the bottom, and then turn and cook for 2 minutes for medium. Transfer the salmon to a plate and allow to rest.

  4. Step 4 Add the vegetables and noodles

    Add the bell pepper and snow peas to the skillet and cook, stirring constantly, for 2-3 minutes, or until heated through and tender-crisp. Add the reserved sauce to the skillet and heat through. Add the noodles to the pan and toss to coat with the sauce.

  5. Step 5 Plate, garnish and serve

    Distribute the noodles and vegetables evenly among 6 serving bowls. Top each bowl with a salmon fillet. Sprinkle each plate generously with peanuts, green onions, and cilantro. Serve with lime wedges and Sriracha sauce on the side.
