The recipe was super easy but a little time consuming as you need to marinate the salmon for an hour if possible. However it only took five minutes to prepare and under ten to cook.
Ingredients for 4 people:
4 skinless salmon fillets
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp clear honey
25g stem ginger, drained and finely sliced
2 spring onions, cut into long strips (I didn't read this part and sliced them)!
Rind and juice of 1 lime
Sugar snap peas
In a bowl, mix together the oil, soy sauce, honey, ginger, lime rind, lime juice, spring onions and season to taste.
When it is ready, preheat the grill to high. The recipe said to place the salmon on baking paper - I would actually recommend foil as my baking paper seriously burnt! Brush the salmon with the marinade and cook for 5 minutes.
Turn and then brush with more marinade and grill for a further 4-5 minutes. (Check out my burnt paper)! If you are serving with sugar snap peas, start cooking them now too.
Finally serve and enjoy.
As I mentioned earlier the thought of salmon on a Saturday night filled me with dread - but this was so much better than I was expecting - it kind of tasted like a very very healthy Chinese take away (I am not sure my brother would believe me though)! Next time I will add some noodles or egg fried rice if I want to bulk the meal up a little bit. Although I have to say it was very good as it was and I felt most healthy….until I are an enormous slab of my rocky all!!
