  • 1-2 tbsp. olive oil
  • Sea salt & freshly ground black pepper to taste

  5. Add the fiery chilli pesto and peanut butter to the wok along with 6 tbsp of hot water, heat gently and stir to combine, top up with more hot water if the mixture is too thick.
  6. Separate the noodles a little and add to the pan, stir to coat and heat through then add the courgette mixture and salmon to the pan and gently stir through and transfer to serving dishes.
