Sometimes you just want something fast, fresh and easy don't you? I love noodles although I admit that most of the time noodles don't not make the lightest meals. Soba or buckwheat noodles are one of the exceptions, these incredibly good-for-you noodles make refreshing yet satisfying meals and are delicious dressed simply in some soy sauce and mirin. I came up with today's feature as I was craving for a light lunch and soba seemed like the perfect answer. The soba was simply tossed in a savoury dressing of light soy sauce, mirin and then brightened up with some squirts of fresh lemon juice. If you don't like smoked salmon, you can skip them and substitute with some tofu for a vegetarian dish. As the smoked salmon is already salty, I did not add salt to the noodles and I used the soy sauce sparingly so do adjust the dressing accordingly if you decide to skip the smoked salmon.
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
