Make the sauce: combine the peanut butter, the reserved brine, and the 8 ingredients that follow, in a small pan over medium heat (enough heat to melt the peanut butter and creamed coconut). Reduce heat to lowest setting.
Prepare the dried egg noodles according to the instructions on the packet. (I use the leftover vegetable water to cook the egg noodles -- its already hot, and full of vitamins!).
Drain the noodles. Stir in the sauce and the basil or cilantro (aka coriander) (optional). Flake the salmon and fold it into the noodles.
Fold in the vegetables or serve them on the side. Ensure that the meal is warm throughout, and ENJOY!
