Not all soba noodles are created equal. Check the ingredient list on the package to make sure your noodles have been made with 100 percent buckwheat flour. (Many brands use a mix of buckwheat and regular wheat flour.) Look for gluten-free soba noodles in health food stores.

MethodCook noodles according to package directions; drain. Rinse under cold water and drain again. Set aside.
Sprinkle salmon with coriander, salt and pepper. In large nonstick skillet, heat half of the oil over medium heat; cook salmon, turning once, until fish flakes easily when tested, about 12 minutes. Transfer to plate; let cool enough to handle. Break into large bite-size pieces; set aside.
Meanwhile, whisk together orange zest, orange juice, tamari, lime zest, lime juice, ginger, honey and hot pepper flakes; set aside.
Add remaining oil to pan; heat over medium heat. Cook garlic, turning occasionally, until golden, about 2 minutes. Discard garlic. Stir in spinach; cook, stirring, until spinach is wilted, about 1 minute.
Stir in noodles and orange mixture; toss to coat. Gently stir in salmon; cook, gently stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 5 minutes.
