Make it different
Instead of the mackerel, toss 200g cooked prawns through the noodle salad.Make it spicy
Add sliced red chilli and a squeeze of lime to the dressing for added kick.


  1. Boil a kettle of water and tip the noodles into a large heatproof bowl. Cover them with boiling water and leave for 5 mins. Meanwhile, mix the soy sauce with the garlic, ginger and 3 tbsp of water to make a dressing. Drain the noodles, rinse under the cold tap, then drain them again. Tip into a bowl and toss in the cucumber, spring onions, half the coriander and half the dressing. Top each portion of noodles with mackerel, drizzle the remaining dressing over and sprinkle with the rest of the coriander. Serve.
