Southeast Asian—Inspired Salmon Soup Recipe at
Place noodles in a large bowl, cover with hot tap water and soak until softened, 20 to 25 minutes. Drain.

Meanwhile, heat canola oil over medium heat in a Dutch oven. Add garlic and cook, stirring often, until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel with a slotted spoon. (If the oil is too hot, the garlic will burn and become bitter so try a tester slice first).

Carefully pour broth into the pan (it may spatter a little); bring to a boil. Stir in tomatoes and their juice, fish sauce, chile-garlic sauce and hot sesame oil. Stir in salmon, reduce heat to a gentle simmer and cook until the salmon is nearly cooked through, about 2 minutes. Stir in the drained noodles and scallions and simmer 1 minute more.

Top with cilantro and the crispy garlic. Serve with lime wedges, if desired.

Tip: Place the salmon fillet on a clean cutting board, skin side down. Starting at the tail end, slip the blade of a long, sharp knife. Gently push the blade along at a 30 degree angle, separating the fillet from the skin without cutting through either.
