Sesame-Seared Salmon with Pak Choi and Vermicelli Rice Noodles

I love eating salmon. It's such a versatile fish that can be made in so many ways. Today I am bringing you one of my favorite versions, covered in sesame seeds. sesame seeds give such a lovely nutty aroma after frying. Together with some greens, lovely light noodles and a light sauce, it makes a perfect meal.
