Cooking time: 5-6mins (not including rice)

    I chop baby corn, mangetout, and tenderstem broccoli into big chunks. Use whatever you like!

Cooking Method

1. Wash your rice until the water runs clear, then cook it according to the instructions on the packet. Once this is cooking, start to chop and prepare all of your fresh ingredients. The fish and veg in this recipe will cook in a few short minutes, so try to time your rice accordingly. In a pinch you could use microwaveable rice.

2. Mix your ingredients for the sauce, and pour them onto the salmon fillets in a bowl.

3. Get a non-stick pan heating on the stove with a little oil. Once it's hot, take the salmon fillets out of the bowl, and pop them in the pan skin side down. Pour most of the sauce in the bowl over your salmon. After a few seconds, slide a spatula under your salmon fillets to ensure that the skin doesn't stick to your pan.

4. Heat a wok on the stove with a good amount of oil, and chuck in your veg once heated. Let it start to cook in the oil for a couple of minutes before adding your dried chilli flakes to taste, plus a good glug of soy sauce. Keep turning your veg to avoid it burning!

5. Once your salmon is almost cooked, pour over the remaining sauce and turn the fillets over for the final minute.

6. Both your salmon and veg should take around 5-6mins to cook, but it's best to simply pay attention to them to get it right. I prefer my salmon a little raw in the middle, and my vegetables crunchy, so I take them out of the pan once I feel they're ready.

7. Serve and enjoy!
