Ingredients (2 Servings)

  • 100g Brown Basmati Rice
  • 2 Skinless Salmon Fillets
  • 2 Pak Choi, Quartered Lengthways
  • A Handful of Mangetout
  • Pickled Beetroot
  • 2 Spring Onions, Thinly Sliced

For the sauce:

  • 1 tbsp White Miso
  • 1 tbsp Rice Vinegar
  • 1 Thumb-Sized Piece of Ginger, Finely Grated
  • 1 Garlic Clove, Finely Grated


  1. Cook the rice in lightly salted boiling water following pack instructions, then drain well.
  2. For the sauce, whisk together the miso, rice vinegar, ginger and garlic with 100ml of water.
  3. Heat the grill to high and heat a non-stick, oven-proof frying pan over a medium-high heat. Lightly oil and season the salmon fillets, then cook on one side for 2 minutes until crisp.
  4. Turn the salmon, remove from the heat and pour over the miso sauce. Put  the pan under the grill for 2-3 minutes or until the salmon is crisp and the sauce is reduced and bubbling.
  5. Meanwhile, cook the pak choi and mangetout in a large pan of boiling water until just tender, then drain well.
  6. Divide the rice and veg between two plates then add the salmon, spooning over any sauce. Add the picked beetroot and sprinkle with spring onions to serve.
