This recipe is quite lovely. The noodles are really what make it so delicious. We added about a tsp. of rice wine vinegar to the sauce- b/c our limes were not very juicy- and quite honestly, it really brightened the flavor. (My mother went on and on about how fabulous the noodles were!) The salmon was super easy to make- and quite tasty- just wish I would have made a tad more (ok, maybe double?) of that yummy sauce to spoon over it. ~There's always next time! Made for Spring, 09 PAC. Great recipe!
