I think you’ve probably worked out by now that my cooking & baking is more ‘a bit of this and a handful of that’ and less exact weights and measures.
I enjoy cooking convoluted and complicated dishes on occasion but really, if that’s what you are looking for, there are at least a million and one other (more professional!) places you can find those recipes. On here, I’m all about quick, easy & tasty. It’s very rare you’ll find anything that takes longer than half an hour. If it does, it’s time spent cooking away; doing it’s own thing and leaving you to do something else 😀
So, without further ado, here’s my recipe for chili & ginger salmon; on the table in under half an hour…
Ingredients for 4
- 4 salmon fillets
- 3-5 spring onions
- 3 cloves garlic
- 1-2 chilies
- 1″ piece of ginger
- 1 lime
- Soy sauce
- 1 1/2 cups rice
- Rice vinegar
- Rinse some rice & leave it to soak.
- Preheat oven to 350F/180/170C fan/Gas Mark 5.
- Lightly oil some foil (double the length of a baking tray).
- Lay salmon fillets in the centre of the foil, skin side down.
- Chop the spring onion, garlic, ginger & chilies; and sprinkle on top.
- Squeeze over the juice of 1/2 a lime, shake on around a tablespoon of soy sauce and add the grated zest of the lime.
- Loosely wrap the foil over & seal the edges.Pop in the oven for 15-18 minutes.
- Drain & rinse rice and put in pot with 3 cups of water. Bring to the boil & then simmer for 15 minutes.
- When all the water has evaporated, turn off the heat and add juice from the other 1/2 of the lime & 1 teaspoon of rice vinegar. Replace the lid, give the pot a shake & set aside while you remove the salmon from the oven.
- Serve immediately, with your choice of vegetables.
