Want a delicious, nutritious dinner in 10 minutes? This is the recipe you need! There are only a few ingredients but combined for maximum taste.
Not only is salmon absolutely delicious, it's rich in omega-3 and protein, making it a great food for heart health. You can use fresh or frozen salmon for this dish but fresh is always going to be better. If you do use frozen salmon, defrost packaged salmon in a bowl of cold water for about 40 minutes beforehand.
You can probably use a different variety of fish for this recipe but you may need to slightly adjust the cooking time.
On account of my boyfriend not being a fish-fan, this recipe is a quick and easy dinner for one but you can easily multiply the ingredients for multiple people.
Ingredients 1 fillet of salmon (mine was about 200g but that's up to you and your hunger)
1 bunch of pak choy or baby bok choy
handful of coriander leaves
1/2 a lemon
1tsp olive oil
1-2tbsp oyster sauce
salt and pepper to taste
Method Pull appart the pak choy and rinse well.
Chop the coriander leaves really finely.
Using a mortar and pestle (or a bowl and spoon) throw in the coriander, the juice of 1/4 lemon, olive oil, a good crack of pepper and a pinch of salt and mash it all together to form a paste.
Add a little bit of oil to a frying pan and heat on medium. Once hot add the salmon to the pan. (A small piece (200g) will only need about 2 1/2 minutes on each side, if that. I like mine to be nice and crispy on the outside so I wait for the colour change, an easy way to tell if it's cooked is when you can see it just start to flake.)
After the couple of minutes on the first side, when you turn the fish over add the pack choy to the frying pan and sprinkle with oyster sauce. Toss them around a little bit until they start to soften (about 2 minutes).
Your dinner is now ready!
Place the pack choy on the bottom of your plate, put the salmon on top and spread the coriander salsa/paste over the top. Serve with another 1/4 wedge of lemon.
