I wonder why I always feel that I ‘should’ eat fish on Friday? I’m sure we didn’t have a fish on Friday rule when I was growing up, but I will ask the parents to see what their memory is!

Tonight was a bit of an experiment….

Image… and really nice. I would urge you to give this a try.

Soy and Sesame Salmon with Coconut Rice

2 fillets of salmon

2tbsp soy sauce

1tbsp sesame oil

1tbsp runny honey

100g basmati rice

200g water

200g coconut milk

1 carrot

1 courgette

1 red onion

1 garlic clove

Handful baby spinach leaves

  • mix half the soy with the sesame and honey. Pour over the salmon and rub it all over. You could marinade this overnight for a more intense flavour, but I left it for only 45mins and it had taken on the flavour well.
  • pop the salmon in the oven at 180° for 30mins, until cooked through.
  • cook the rice in the water until he water has absorbed. Add the coconut milk and cook until all absorbed and the rice is cooked.
  • use a potato peeler to peel long slices of the carrot and courgette. Stir fry all the veg in a wok for a min or two. Add the remaining soy and toss in the pan for another couple of mins.
  • serve all together.

I have to make a confession though- I loved his dish but Colin did not! He loved the fish, thought the rice was good, but didn’t like the thin strips of veg- he thought they were limp and lifeless!!!
