This is great for a special occasion, whether it's a romantic dinner for two or or entertaining friends! Salmon can be expensive so I usually buy frozen fillets as they tend to be kinder to the budget, or keep your eyes open for special offers!
Serves 2 (easily doubled!), approx £1.95 per person
Prep (including marinating) 35 mins Cooking 20 mins
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp runny honey
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tsp ground black pepper
2 salmon fillets
For the Rice
1 cup/200g Basmati rice
1 tin coconut milk
½ cup/120ml water
¼ tsp salt
½ bunch fresh coriander
In a small bowl or jug mix together the soy, honey, oil, garlic & black pepper.
Place the salmon fillets in a shallow dish & pour over the mixture.
Cover the dish with cling film & place in the fridge to marinate for 30 minutes.
Heat the oven to 180C/Gas 4/160 Fan.
Remove the salmon from the fridge, wrap it in foil & place on a baking tray.
Bake for 20 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through.
While the salmon is in the oven get the rice going.
Place the rice, coconut milk, water & salt in a pan, cover, bring to the boil & cook until the rice is tender & all the liquid has gone.
Fluff the rice with a fork, add the coriander & mix well.
Serve the salmon & rice together, you could add some baby sweetcorn or sugar snap peas if you like.
