Salmon is one of my absolute favorite fish, it is such a versatile ingredient and oh so healthy as well! Personally, I love salmon with an Asian twist on it as I think the flavors just go together so perfectly. This recipe is absolutely bursting with fresh, zingy flavors and is also really healthy, which is always a plus. This would be an ideal dish to make if you were going to have guests because you could make it all up and have it marinating in the fridge, then just bake it when you need it. So easy.

Sticky Ginger Salmon (Serves 2)

25g crystallized ginger, cut into very thin matchsticks

3 garlic cloves, minced

2 1/2tbsp dark soy sauce

2tbsp runny honey

1 1/2tsp sesame oil

1/2 fresh red chilli, finely chopped

1/2 orange, zest and juice

2 salmon fillets, skin on

salt and pepper

To Serve:

2 nests of dried egg noodles

a fresh crunchy salad

  • In a dish big enough to fit the two salmon fillets, whisk together the ginger, garlic, soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, chilli and orange juice and zest. 
  • Add your salmon fillets to the dish and rub them around in the marinade to get them fully coated. Leave them skin side up and let marinade for at least 30mins.
  • Preheat the oven to 200ºc/375ºf and line a baking tray with baking parchment.
  • After the 30mins, take the salmon out of the marinade and let most of the marinade drip off them and back into the dish. Lay the salmon on the prepared baking tray and and bake in the oven for 20-25mins.
  • Pour the marinade into a small pot and heat over a medium heat for 2-3mins, stirring constantly until it thickens slightly.
  • Cook the noodles according to packet instructions and toss with 1-2tsp sesame oil then serve with the salmon fillets, drizzled with some marinade sauce  and a big, fresh salad.
