Heat up a frying pan and coat with oil, add salmon and cook for 3-4 mins on each side or until cooked through. Remove from the pan, wrap loosely in foil and leave to rest for 5 mins. 

Meanwhile, cook the noodles in a large saucepan of boiling water for about 5 mins, or according to the packet instructions, until just tender.
