Spicy Noodles Recipe
- Rice noodles (I find them in the international foods section of our grocery store)
- Olive oil
- Green onions
- Crushed red pepper flakes
- Brown sugar
- Tamari or soy sauce
- Sriracha hot sauce
- Sesame oil
- Sea Cuisine Teriyaki Salmon (or other protein, optional)
Sea Cuisine is my new favorite for frozen seafood. These salmon fillets come in an air-tight package from the freezer section of the grocery store and it’s truly delicious. The fillets are already seasoned. I use my air fryer to cook the frozen salmon – it’s so easy and quick that way!
How to Make Spicy Asian Noodles
- Heat a pot of salted water to boil. When water reaches a full boil, add rice noodles and cook according to the package directions (about 4-5 minutes). Strain and rinse in cool water and set aside.
- While waiting for the water to boil, prep other ingredients. Wash and slice zucchini into half-moon shapes, chop cilantro and green onions. Air fry salmon (refer to step 7 for instructions.)
- In a large skillet heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-low heat. Add the crushed red pepper to the pan, add zucchini to the pan, increase heat to high, and stir fry until just charred; 2-3 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook for one minute.
- Prepare the sauce. In a small bowl, stir together brown sugar, tamari/soy sauce, sriracha, and sesame oil.
How to Air Fry Frozen Salmon
5. Air fry frozen salmon for 10-12 minutes at 380 degrees. 6. Remove salmon from air-fryer and set aside. If you don’t have an air fryer, here’s an alternative option:
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Place frozen fillets on a foil-lined baking sheet and cook for 25-27 minutes.
Spicy Noodles with Salmon
7. Add the noodles back into the pan with zucchini and garlic and pour sauce over it. Stir over medium heat until everything is heated through, about 4-5 minutes. 8. Serve immediately. Top spicy noodles with salmon, cilantro, green onion, etc.

This is a fabulous meal! The teriyaki sauce in the salmon is beyond delicious!!!
This was so good! Loved how easy it was to make and the spice was perfect. Making it again for dinner!!
We loved these noodles and served them with sesame chicken, it was a big hit! I omitted the red pepper flakes as I was feeding kids, but followed the recipe as written. Thank you!
