For the Salad

  • 1 bunch soba noodles Soba noodles tend to come with a little pre-packed loop around them, enough for one serve
  • 1 handful samphire make sure no big woody stems
  • ½ cup peas frozen or fresh

For the Dressing

  • 2 teaspoon Sweet White Mirin
  • 2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoon mirin or white wine
  • 2 teaspoon Ume plum seasoning Or light white wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoon water

To serve

  • 2 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 spring onion, finely chopped


  • Boil a saucepan of water to the boil
  • Add the noodles & simmer for 1 min
  • Add the peas & simmer for 2 mins
  • Add the samphire & simmer for barely 1 min
  • Drain & rinse to refresh in cold water
  • Meanwhile, whisk together all the dressing ingredients, tasting to check the balance. You want it to be a little tangy, a little salty & fairly sweet to balance with the salty samphire. 
  • To serve, toss the noodles & veggies with the dressing, then top with the spring onion & sesame seeds.
