to serve 1
1 fillet of salmon
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
1 teaspoon of honey
1 teaspoon of freshly grated ginger
1 cup of water
a handful of broccoli (or any preferred greens!)
60 g of brown rice
Begin by rinsing the brown rice, bring it to the boil and let it simmer for around 25- 30 minutes (but I'd recommend checking the instructions on the packet!)
Then in a large saucepan, mix the soy sauce, honey with a good splash of water- around 1 cup.
Season with pepper (no salt needed here as soy sauce provides the salt here!) and evenly spread the grated ginger on top of the fillet. If you have time, leave this for half an hour or longer to let the flavour sink in. Don't worry if you want to cook it straight away, it will still be delicious!
Next, add the salmon, skin- side down into the large saucepan with soy sauce, honey and water.
Bring it onto a high heat, and then turn it down immediately to a low simmer for about 5-10 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillet.
When there's only 5 minutes left before the rice is cooked, steam the broccoli on top of this pan (I do this as I have limited space!).
Check that the salmon is cooked and serve on top of the rice and broccoli. Pour over the left-over liquid from the saucepan, and enjoy!
