Pesto Salmon With Noodles

Take some Oriental inspiration from Aldi's Garth McColgan.


  • 1 pack wild pink salmon (frozen)
  • 1 pack chinese medium noodles
  • 4 tblsp pesto
  • 100 ml cream
  • 50 ml white wine
  • 2 carrots (finely sliced)
  • 4 cloves garlic (finely sliced)
  • 4 shallots (finely sliced)
  • a few fresh basil leaves


  1. Cook the noodles, according to the pack instructions, and chill under cold, running water.
  2. Lay the carrots, garlic and shallots on the bottom of a baking dish and pour on the cream and white wine. Season with a little salt.
  3. Lay the noodles on top of the vegetables and top with the four salmon fillets. Smear 1tbs of pesto on each piece of salmon; cover the dish with tinfoil.
  4. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 200°C for 40 minutes.
  5. To serve, simply scatter some basil leaves on top.
  6. Chef’s Tip: When you’re buying shallots, make sure they’re firm and heavy with a dry wispy skin. If you store them in a cool, dark and dry place, they should keep for a couple of months. However, it all depends upon how much moisture is contained in the onion – the dryer and harder the onion, the longer it will last.
