INGREDIENTSIngredients
  • 1 ½ jasmine rice
  • 600g salmon (skinned and deboned, cut into bite-sized pieces)  
  • 250g bok choy
  • Sesame oil
  • ½ cup fresh coriander (roughly chopped)
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds (toasted)
  • Coconut oil
  • Salt and pepper

Ginger, chilli sauce

  • ⅓ cup water
  • ½ cup rice vinegar
  • 1 lime (juice)
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • 2 red chilli (deseeded and finely diced)
  • 2 Tbsp fish sauce
  • 2 Tbsp ginger (grated) + 1 small thumb (peeled and finely sliced)
  • 1 garlic clove (crushed)
METHODMethod
  1. Start preheating the oven to 200 degrees celsius, on the grill setting.
  1. In a small saucepan add all of the ginger and chilli sauce ingredients and simmer on low-medium heat for 15 minutes, or until the sauce has reduced.
  1. Cook rice as per packet instructions (we like to use the absorption method).
  1. Once the oven has reached temperature, add the salmon to a lined baking tray. Cook for 7-10 minutes until golden and slightly crispy.
  1. While the salmon is cooking, prepare the bok choy. Slice the bok choy into 4cm sections from the stem to the leaves and divide the stems from the leaves. Add approximately 1 Tbsp of coconut oil to a frying pan over medium-high heat; add the bok choy stems with a pinch of salt and cook until tender. Add the leaves and cook until just wilted, then remove from the pan and drizzle with a little sesame oil.
  1. Divide the rice between four plates, top with greens, salmon and ginger chilli sauce, and then garnish with sesame seeds and coriander.
