1.Put the salmon on a large, foil-lined tray. Mix the miso, mirin, vinegar and ginger; spread over the fish. Leave for at least 20 minutes, preferably longer, in the fridge (up to 2 days).

Mix the remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Toss in the noodles and beans; add more tamari to taste, cover and chill.

3. Divide the noodles between bowls. Top with chunks of the salmon (discard the skin) more sesame seeds and a little sesame oil.
