Method

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.

I did this in a wok and used peas and spinach instead of cucumber and spring onion - it was delicious and something i will definately make again. A hit with the whole family, including my 23 month old!!

I was really looking forward to trying this, however it wasn't as nice as i thought it might've been. Really easy to make though. x

I added the lime and chilli as suggested but substituted the cucumber for spinach. Really tasty and simple to prepare!

The first time I made this, I light fried prawns and scallops, instead of smoked mackerel because the supermarket sold out on smoked mackerel. The result was divine! The second time I made this, I used smoked salmon (again, could not find smoked mackerel) but the resulting taste was not good.
