1. Mix together the garlic, one teaspoon of the sesame oil and the teriyaki sauce in a shallow dish. Add the salmon and turn to coat in the sauce.

2. Heat the vegetable oil in a frying pan, and the salmon and cook, skin side down, for 3-4 minutes, until crisp, then turn the fish over and cook for a further 8–10 minutes until cooked through.

3. Meanwhile, cook the soya beans or peas in a saucepan of lightly salted boiling water for three minutes until tender. Drain and return to the pan.

4. Add the remaining sesame oil, the sherry and soy sauce and toss to coat.

5. Pour any remaining teriyaki marinade into the salmon pan and heat through. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve with noodles, topped with spring onions and coriander.
