This delicious dinner will satisfy your hunger and your taste buds without piling on additional weight.
What you'll need: 
4 salmon fillets, about 200g/7oz each
125ml/4 fl oz teriyaki marinade
1 shallot, sliced
2-cm/3/4 inch piece root ginger, finely chopped
2 carrots, sliced
115g/4oz closed cup mushrooms, sliced
1.2 litres/2pints vegetable stock
115g/4oz frozen peas
250g/9oz dried medium egg noodles
175g/6oz Chinese leaves, shredded and 4 spring onions, sliced
Wipe off any scales from the salmon skin. Arrange the salmon fillets, skin-side up, in a single layer. Mix the teriyaki marinade with the shallot and ginger in a small bowl and pour over the salmon. Cover and leave to marinate in the refrigerator for at least an hour, turning the salmon over halfway through the marinating time.
Put the carrots, mushrooms and stock into a large saucepan, arrange the salmon, skin-side down, on a shallow baking tray.
Pour the fish marinade into the saucepan of vegetables and stock and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat the grill to medium. Cook the salmon under the preheated grill for 10-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillets, until the flesh turns pink and flakes easily. Remove from the grill and keep warm.
Add noodles and peas to the stock and return to the boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 5 minutes, or until the noodles are tender, Stir in the Chinese leaves and spring onions and heat through for 1 minute.
Carefully drain off 300ml/10fl oz of the stock into a small heatproof jug and reserve.
Drain and discard the remaining stock.
Divide the noodles and vegetables between 4 warmed serving bowls and top each with a salmon fillet. Pour the reserved stock over each bowl and serve immediately with any wine of your chose.
Enjoy this delicious meal that will have your taste buds wanting more!
It might be best to some enjoy with family and friends.
There's far more to eating healthily than losing weight. While losing extra pounds might be relatively high on your list of priorities, it would be unwise and possibly damaging to your looks to try and fast track yourself to skinny status. Getting the right amount of nutrients by eating a balanced diet is the best way forward when it comes to healthy eating.
