Anna's Family Kitchen was inspired by my love of food and desire to feed my family healthy, home cooked wholesome meals that are beautifully presented and appealing but don’t require hours of prep in the kitchen.

Asian Salmon

Health in a bowl! This salmon dish takes 20 minutes start to finish, contains three of your five a day and of course salmon is packed with omega three fatty acids and protein. Serve with noodles or rice if you like and feel free to play with the vegetable combo!

Serves: 4

Prep: 12 minutes
Cooking: 5 minutes
Total: 20 minutes

Difficulty: easy



600g salmon fillet, or 4 individual salmon fillets
300g tenderstem broccoli
1 red pepper sliced
200g Pak Choi or Tat Soi
100g sugar snaps
2 tsp sesame seeds
Fresh coriander

For the dressing/marinade:-
1 tbsp honey
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp sesame oil
2 garlic cloves crushed
2 tsp grated or finely chopped ginger
1 chilli deserved and chopped
Juice of 1 lime

Add the tender stem broccoli to a pan of boiling water leaving the heads sitting proud of the water. Leave for a few minutes to soften the stalks.

Mix together the dressing ingredients and spoon 3 tsp of it over the salmon. You can put the salmon in the fridge to marinade if you have time but it’s not necessary.

Put the salmon on a parchment paper on a baking tray and sprinkle over half the sesame seeds. If using a whole piece of salmon it will need 12 minutes in the oven at 200 degrees. If using individual fillets they will only need 5 minutes.

Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan and add the broccoli. Stir fry for a minute then add the peppers and sugar snaps with 2 tbsp of the dressing. Stir fry for 2 minutes then add the Tat Soi. Stir fry again for 2 minutes. Sprinkle over the remaining sesame seeds.

Serve the vegetables with the salmon sat on top and a sprinkle of chopped coriander and the remaining dressing on the side.
