  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. ​Season salmon with salt and pepper and place onto a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil or ovenproof pan. Bake until the salmon is cooked through, about 12-15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, cook soba noodles according to package instructions in a large saucepan with boiling salted water, until al dente. Drain the pasta and rinse with cold water and set aside. Refill the pot with water, salt it and bring to a boil. Add the green beans to the boiling water and cook until they are crisp tender, about 4 minutes. Drain well.

  4. Whisk the last 5 ingredients together until combined.
  5. When ready to serve, break the salmon into bite-sized pieces and combine with the noodles, greenbeans, and dressing. Top with scallions and sesame seeds, if desired.
