Heat grill to high. Place the fish in a shallow baking dish, then grill for 4-5 mins until cooked through, but still a little pink in the centre. Cover and set aside.
Heat a wok, add the oil, then stir-fry the ginger, chilli and spring onions for 2-3 mins. Stir in the soy, sugar and a splash of water, then take off the heat. Throw in the coriander and serve immediately with the salmon. Delicious with rice or noodles.
Make it with chicken
SPICY CHICKEN WRAPS Use 4 chicken breasts instead of the salmon. Slice the chicken into strips, then stir-fry with 2 tbsp oil over a high heat for 5 mins. Add the ginger, chilli, spring onions and soy as above. Toss in the coriander, then roll up in warmed tortilla wraps.
For perfect salmon, always undercook it slightly, then cover and leave to stand for a few mins. As it stands it will carry on cooking gently, resulting in velvety, just-cooked fish.
