Heat a fry pan on medium-high heat. Add the coconut oil and fry the salmon for two minutes on each side. Set salmon aside and turn the heat down to medium.

Pour the stock into the pan, bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer for 10 minutes to let the flavours infuse.


Transfer the salmon fillets to the liquid and poach for 5 minutes on both sides.


Add the spinach, bok choy and noodles for the last couple of minutes before serving with garnish.
