SERVES 2

INGREDIENTS
2 fillets of salmon
1 tablespoon soy sauce
A thumbsize piece of ginger

1/2 fresh chilli or 1/2 teaspoon chilli paste, to taste
1 tablespoon sesame oil
Small handful of fresh coriander leaves
Wedges of lime, to serve
2 cups of Asian greens, to serve

PEEL, GRATE, DICE, TOP, BAKE, STEAM, SERVE…
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celcius.

Peel and finely grate the ginger, peel and mince the garlic, and finely chop the chilli. Mix the chilli, ginger, garlic, sesame oil and soy sauce together. Put the salmon skin-down in a small baking dish or tray. Spoon over the¬†ginger, garlic, soy sauce and sesame oil mix. Bake for 15-20 minutes until cooked to your liking. Try not to overcook it as it’s nice when it’s still a little pink on the inside.

In the meantime, steam the greens in a colander over boiling water for just a few minutes.

Serve the salmon straight out of the oven alongside the greens with a wedge of lime. Chop the coriander and sprinkle on top. Serve with a little extra soy sauce if a little salt is needed.
