This is my go-to recipe, when I want something super quick but utterly tasty. When I say recipe, it’s more of a quick improvisation, taking inspiration from a friend who made a similar version for my lunch some time ago.
So, what does it involve? Simply pop a decent sized piece of salmon in a baking tray, cover it in a mixture of soy sauce, honey, ginger and garlic, throw a few handfuls of shredded spring onions over the top, and pop it under a hot grill until it appears to burn (it’s not it’s just the honey and soy caramalising). Keep checking on it and once the glaze has caramalised and the fish is cooked, it’s good to go.
If the marinade seems to prefer to sit in the dish, rather than on the fish, just spoon it back over the salmon with a teaspoon.
In the picture above you can see that I put mine fish on a piece of grease proof paper. I wouldn’t recommend this, unless you love to hear the sound of your fire alarm going off. It caught fire under the grill, so I shan’t be doing that again.
Once the salmon is cooked – this should take about 10-15 minutes – chuck a handful of coriander over the top of it to make it look pretty and you’re ready to go. Serve it up with some new potatoes and salad for a tasty supper.
While the husband and I tucked into a healthy tea of salmon and salad, the toddler had fish fingers and potatoes instead. I obviously offered him the salmon, but he turned his nose up and carried on playing with his Spiderman lego. I took that to mean no!
The verdict from the husband: ‘Mmmm, thank you. Shall I finish it off?’ He didn’t wait for me to reply and was busy tucking in when I looked up.
