I love collecting recipes, whether it’s ones that I have put together or recipes that…
Rach and I don’t have fish very often so wanted to make some nice dishes which included fish, this salmon dish is perfect. If you like salmon fillet that’s been well marinated then this is perfect for you, it is also very quick and easy to make.
The first thing you want to ensure you have is a couple of good quality salmon fillets, it’s worth getting them from a fishmonger or the fresh fish counter at the supermarket. In a bowl you want to put 2 tablespoons of dark soy sauce, 1 tablespoon of honey and give this a good mix together.
Deseed and finely chop 1 red chilli and add these to the mixture along with 1 chopped garlic clove and the zest of 1 lime. Again give all of this a good mix to ensure the marinade is fully mixed together.
Put the salmon fillets into a oven dish and pour the marinade over them and set aside for at least 30 minutes. Half way through the salmon marinating its once turning them to ensure they are completely covered.
Pre-heat the oven on grill at a medium heat In a large saucepan you want to place the spinach along with the chopped mushroom, 2 chopped garlic cloves, lime zest and tablespoon of dried chilli flakes.
This then wants a really good stir to ensure all of the ingredients are mixed well with the spinach and allow this to cook. Halfway through cooking you then want to add the sesame oil to give it some additional flavour. Its now worth adding the rice on the hob in a saucepan of boiling water and allow this to cook as you are waiting for the spinach and salmon to continue cooking.
Place the salmon on a baking tray along with the marinade and the tomatoes on the vine, this then wants to go into the oven. Leave the salmon to cook for 12 minutes, turning halfway through.
Once everything is cooked you want to plate up. Separate the spinach and place the grilled salmon on top, place the tomatoes that should still be on the vine to one side and then spoon the rice onto the plate.
ENJOY! I have cooked this dish a few times now, it is very quick to cook and is also very easy to do. The salmon is full of flavour and even though it has a decent amount of chilli it is not very hot or spicy, it just adds an additional depth of flavour. If you try it, please let me know what you think in the comments 🙂
I have enjoyed cooking for some years now, its one of the only things that I can do that makes me relaxed and forget any worries I have. I love trying new foods and visiting restaurants. Other hobbies include writing, game development and work :)
