Archie and Lily make the BEST SALMON DISH EVER!

I once wrote about my flat mate Archies culinary skills and the general view was that he was a typical 'standard spag bowl dish' boy cook and actually 'nothing to write home about' however my views are rapidly changing as yesterday we created THE BEST SALMON DISH EVER!!! It was quick, easy and delicious, a perfect dish which would work for a dinner party or simply a monday night in front of the tv.  

I returned home late last night after yoga and was delighted to find Archie carefully placing six generously sized salmon fillets on a baking tray. I, being the meddler that I am, decided to suggest using all the ingredients we had left over from the weekend, so on top of the salmon fillets we popped some finely chopped spring onion, red chillis, coriander stalks (save the leaves for the garnish), finely grated ginger and garlic and some soy sauce. 

Leaving that to marinate for a little while we put the rice on to boil for 15 mins. While that was cooking we placed a little sesame oil in a frying pan/wok and fry off some mange tout, baby corn and sliced red peppers, add a little soy sauce to taste. The veg takes about 5 - 7 mins until tender on a medium/low heat. 

Then we placed the Salmon under the grill for 5 mins. 

We then drained the rice and served, finally sprinkling the coriander leaves as a garnish. 

I can honestly say it is my favorite way to eat salmon at the moment!

So a quick recap on the ingredients for Grilled Salmon Asian Style

6 - 8 Salmon fillets (we are greedy and eat two each!)
6 Spring Onions finely chopped
1 Red Chili finely chopped
1 Bunch of Coriander, finely chop the stalks and keep the leaves for garnish
1 tbsp Ginger finely chopped
3 Garlic clovers finely chopped
4 tbsp Soy Sauce
400g Rice (brown or white works)
1 tbsp Sesame Oil
200g Mange Tout
200g Baby corn
2 Red Peppers sliced
