Honey & Soy Salmon

with Coconut & Coriander Rice

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.
