Seared Salmon with Singapore Noodles

This a lovely way to prepare salmon. The curry powder rub is delicious!

For the salmon:

2 tsp. mild curry powder
1 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. table salt
4 salmon fillets
1 tbs. garlic-infused olive oil

For the Noodles:

8 oz. vermicelli rice noodles
1/2 cup dried shrimp
1/2 cup Chinese cooking wine
1 tbs. garlic-infused olive oil
2 cups finely sliced napa cabbage
1 cup baby carrots, cut into thin rounds
2 scallions, sliced
2 tsp. mild curry powder
1 tsp. minced fresh ginger
1/2 cup chicken stock
3 tbs. soy sauce
2 cups bean sprouts
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

For the salmon, mix the curry powder, sugar and salt on a small plate and dip the top of the salmon into it to coat. Set aside.

To make the noodles, put them in a large bowl and poor over boiling water. Leave to set for 4-5 minutes, then drain. Soak the dried shrimp in the wine.

Heat the oil in a large skillet or wok and add the cabbage, corn and scallions. Cook for a few minutes, then tip in the wine and dried shrimp, curry powder, ginger, stock, soy and bean sprouts. Toss in the noodles and bubble a few minutes to thicken.

Serve the salmon over the noodles and sprinkled with cilantro.
