Method

Heat stock in a pot along with the lime leaves, coriander roots, lemongrass, ginger and one of the chillies cut in half lengthways. Bring to the boil and cook for 15 minutes, then strain into another saucepan.

In a large fry pan, fry the salmon for 3-4 minutes on each side.

Bring the aromatic stock back to the boil and add the lime juice, fish sauce and noodles. Cook the noodles for 3 minutes (or as per packet instructions).

Portion the noodle into 4 bowls. Top with the salmon and pour over the broth. Finally garnish with the spring onions, fresh coriander leaves, finely sliced chilli and a drizzle of ketjap manis.
