The Saucy Fish Co. at The Food Warehouse by Iceland

This recipe was born after the lovely folks at The Saucy Fish Co. got in touch to let me know about their new range of delicious ‘cook from frozen’ fish which has recently launched at The Food Warehouse by Iceland. If you haven’t heard of The Food Warehouse yet, then it’s time to get to your nearest one…trust me! They are ‘Iceland’s bigger little brother’, home to exclusive products, more choice and even homeware. You can find tonnes of food ranges that you don’t get in normal Iceland Food stores, such as this new range from The Saucy Fish Co.

The new range includes four different products (three of which are pictured above) including: 

For this recipe I chose to use the Salmon with Chilli, Lime and Ginger Dressing to get the lowest syn recipe possible for you. The delicious salmon is super easy to cook, either in the bag provided in the packet or in your own foil packet if you prefer. It’s ready in less than 30 minutes, and whilst it’s cooking to perfection in the oven you can prepare your Thai Noodle Salad to bring it all together into one tasty meal.

A Slimming World Friendly Salad Recipe

Not only is this tasty salmon just one syn per portion (each pack has two portions in), but the salad I’ve created to go alongside it is low syn too. It’s not just the low syn value that makes this Thai Noodle Salad a great Slimming World choice, it also has a tonne of fresh delicious vegetables which are a great source of nutrients and help fill you up with healthy calories.

The Thai Noodle Salad recipe that is included below makes enough for four servings, and each pack of salmon from The Saucy Fish Co. has two servings. This means you can either have the leftover salad for meal prep or serve up two packs of salmon with dinner. Either way, each portion of salmon is one syn and the syns in this Thai Noodle Salad recipe work out as follows: 

1tbsp Sesame Oil – 6 syns

2tsp Sesame Seeds – 2 syn 

This means the whole salad has 8 syns, which works out at 2 syns per portion. Topped with your salmon and dressing this makes this Thai Noodle Salad recipe just 3 syns per serving

Making Thai Noodle Salad with Chilli, Lime and Ginger Salmon

Once you’ve got yourself down to The Food Warehouse to pick up the entire range from The Saucy Fish Co. you’ll be ready to make this Thai Noodle Salad recipe! The salmon cooks from frozen, so you can pop it straight in the oven and mix up your salad while it cooks. Cooking the salmon in the bag or in a foil packet as suggested means you end up with the most tender, juicy and flavourful piece of fish, which when topped with the tangy Chilli, Ginger and Lime Dressing will blow any boring meal plan out of the water!

    I know what you mean, I'm not really one for eating a plain green salad (at least not unless it's with a really good main!). Asian salads are definitely a great option with so much flavor and crunch. This looks and sounds like a tasty meal.
