Cook the noodles
Bring a medium sauce pot of water to a boil. Add the noodles and cook until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain, reserving ½ cup [1 cup] cooking water. Wipe out the pot. While the water is heating and the noodles are cooking, prepare the fish.
Make the honey-umami glaze; prep and cook the fish
- Set aside half the umami sauce base for the garlic noodles.
- To make the glaze, in a small bowl, stir together the honey, rice vinegar, and half the umami sauce base. Set aside half the glaze for the cabbage.
- Pat the fish dry with a paper towel; season lightly with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking.
For skin-on salmon:
Add the fish, skin side down, and cook until the skin is crisp, 3 to 4 minutes. Turn and cook until the flesh is almost cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes.
For skinless salmon:
Add the fish and cook until lightly browned on the bottom side, 3 to 4 minutes. Turn and cook until the flesh is almost cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes.
Add the fish, skin side down, and cook until the skin is crisp, 2 to 4 minutes. Turn and cook until the flesh is almost cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes.
When the fish is almost cooked through, turn again (skin side down for the skin-on salmon or snapper) and brush the fish with half the honey-umami glaze. Cook until the glaze is warm and the fish is cooked through, about 1 minute. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan.
While the fish is cooking, prepare the cabbage.
Prep and cook the cabbage
- Cut away any core from the cabbage; coarsely chop the cabbage.
In the same pan used for the fish, if dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the cabbage and cook, stirring occasionally, until just wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the remaining honey-umami glaze and cook until heated through and starting to caramelize, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Prep the remaining ingredients; finish the garlic noodles
- Finely chop, press, or grate the garlic.
- Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions on the diagonal, keeping the white and green parts separate. Set aside the green parts for garnish.
In the same pot used for the noodles, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons butter or oil (from your pantry) over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the noodles and stir to combine. Stir in the white parts of the scallions, remaining umami sauce base, Parmesan, and ¼ cup [½ cup] reserved cooking water, adding more cooking water if the noodles seem dry. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Transfer the garlic noodles and cabbage to individual plates. Top with the fish, garnish with the green parts of the scallions, and serve.
- Divide the umami sauce base.
- Stir the honey-umami glaze.
- Press the garlic (if you have a press).
- Divide the white and green parts of the scallions.
- Garnish with the scallions.
