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….
Soy and Sesame Salmon with Coconut Rice
2 fillets of salmon
2tbsp soy sauce
1tbsp sesame oil
1tbsp runny honey
100g basmati rice
200g coconut milk
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!!!
