This dish is incredibly flavorful and unbelievably simple. Soy sauce and orange juice permeate the fish, while toasted-sesame oil gives it a nutty accent. Boiling the marinade turns it into a thick glaze.
Toss 8 ounces cooked udon noodles with 2 teaspoons safflower oil, 1 teaspoon rice vinegar, 1/2 red onion (thinly sliced), 1/2 english cucumber (peeled and cut into 3-inch matchsticks), and a pinch of sugar. Steam 8 heads baby bok choy. Serve salmon with noodles and bok choy.
