Teriyaki baked salmon with sesame pak choi: ingredients
- Two salmon – skinless
- One tablespoon honey
- One tablespoon sweet chilli sauce
- One teaspoon sesame oil
- Two tablespoons soy sauce
- One tablespoon mirin (alternatively use dry sherry)
- Two teaspoons finely grated ginger
- Noodles or brown rice (optional side dish)
How to make in three easy steps
1. Just heat the oven to around 200°C or 180°C for a fan oven or gas mark 6, then place the salmon fillets in a shallow oven dish. Mix the sweet chilli sauce, sesame oil, honey, mirin, ginger and soy sauce in a bowl and then pour it over the salmon so it’s entirely covered. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.
2. Make your pak choi as normal. We suggest using two pak choi and cutting the bases so all the leaves separate. Heat a wok and add a little vegetable oil and sesame oil. Finely grate three garlic cloves then fry them lightly before adding the pak choi. Fry the pak choi until the leaves are wilted, then add fish or vegetable stock and allow this mixture to steam lightly for around five minutes or until the pak choi stems are tender.
3. Serve the pak choi in shallow dishes, place the salmon fillets on top and drizzle the sauce over. Then simply scatter a couple of teaspoons of sesame seeds over the top of your dish and serve immediately with brown rice or noodles, if required.
