Quick Glazed Salmon

With A Cucumber Salad

Serves 2

Ingredients:

2 x 150g Salmon Fillets

1T Light Soy Sauce

2T Gooseberry or chilli tomato jam (or any sweet/tart jam)

1T Sriracha 

1/2 lime, juiced

 

Cucumber Salad

1/2 tsp chilli flakes

1/2 English Cucumber sliced/spiralled

1tsp sesame oil

1tsp ginger 

1/2 lime

Black sesame seeds(optional)

Salt to taste

White or brown rice to serve

 

Method: 

Heat the oven to 200C.

To make the salmon glaze add the jam, sriracha, lime and soy to a bowl, and stir to combine. Spoon the mixture over the salmon, then pop the salmon in the oven for 7-9 minutes until cooked to your liking. 7 Minutes will be on the more “rare” side with a soft sushi-like centre, but the timing will depend on your fillet thickness and oven, so give the salmon a check at about 6 minutes. 

To make the salad, thinly slice or spiral your cucumber. Add the chilli flakes, sesame oil, ginger, lime juice and sesame seeds to a bowl, whisk to combine then add the cucumber. Toss the cucumber through the sauce. 

Spoon your rice into two serving bowls. Top with your roasted salmon and add the cucumber salad on the side. 

Serve immediately
