Cooking Lab - Grilled Salmon Shirataki Soba Salad

It's Spring time! It's time for a lighter, healthier meal ~ 

Japanese shirataki noodles are renowned for its almost-zero calories. They are also known as 'miracle noodle'; and they are the most healthy, effective diet food you can have. 

Soba noodles have less calories and carbohydrates than your normal pasta or noodles. They are also great in decreasing cholesterol levels and lowering blood pressure. 

I added grilled salmon to this diet dish recipe for protein value.
