Speedy, Meet Delicious.

Jarred chili crisp plus fresh, chewy udon noodles and good, oil-packed smoked salmon make an absolutely fantastic dinner that comes together so fast your head just might spin. In a good way! You’ll be raving to friends about this one—it’s too good to come together this fast! And yet, it really does. The magic of a few carefully chosen, insanely flavorful ingredients are what makes this quick noodle recipe work. You’ll just need three ingredients:

  1. Chili crisp. If you’re not on the chili crisp bandwagon yet, HOP. ON. IN.

  2. Tinned salmon! Again—tinned fish! If you’re not a fan yet, it’s time to get on board! Tinned fish is a pantry must-have. You can keep it next to your chili crisp.

  3. Udon noodles. Buy the fresh kind! They cook so fast and they’re so good.

The Best Tinned Salmon

We like to use smoked canned salmon for this recipe. Meaty, smoky, a bit sweet—it’s just too good. Plus, it’s good for you! Full of protein and all of those heart-and-brain-healthy fish oils, too. Here are a few of our favorite places to find canned smoked salmon:

    I happen to have fresh salmon on hand. How can I substitute fresh salmon here?

  • Amy

    Which type of chile crisp chiles do you use? Jalpeno?

    We usually just use ones with dried Chile peppers. Hope you enjoy Amy!

  • Barbara

    What chili crisp brand do you use? They all seem to contain a lot of unhealthy ingredients.

    You can get Don Chilio Chile Crisp on amazon and it has few, simple ingredients. Hope you enjoy Barbara!

    A great option for a quick weeknight meal, even with prepping and pan-frying fresh salmon :) Will definitely add it to the rotation. Thank you!

    Thanks Gabrielle, so happy to hear that. Glad you loved it!

    What a great find! Our family enjoys a variety of Asian inspired dishes, and I'm so happy to add this to the rotation. I wasn't able to find fresh udon noodles, so I used dry. I added shelled edamame and used baked salmon. So simple but so tasty--and fast!

    Thanks Lori, we are so glad this is going into your rotation! That is so fun to hear, glad your family enjoyed it!
