Method

  1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan and put the kettle on to boil. Fry the onion for a few mins until lightly browned. Stir in the ginger and garlic, fry for 1 min, then stir in the rice. Add 300ml boiling water and a little salt, then bring to the boil. Cover and cook for 10-12 mins until the rice is tender. Heat grill to medium.
  2. Brush a baking tray lightly with a little oil. Put the salmon on top and grill for 4-5 mins, then scatter with chilli, coriander, remaining olive oil and seasoning. Grill again for just 4-5 mins until the salmon is cooked through. Serve with the rice and lime halves for squeezing over.

Lovely mid week tea, I will certainly be making this again. The tip to add the herbs after grilling was a good one, thanks. I put some light soy sauce on the table, which added a bit more punch to the rice. I also did some stir fry courgette and chard- a very tasty and filling meal!

Both the salmon and the rice were delicious, but I did feel they fought for attention rather than complemented each other. Served with steamed carrots & mangetout.

Wanted greenery so added some stir fried veg with a wee bit of teryaki sauce to give it a little flavour. Cooked it for my ginger obsessed other half who loved it. :)

Amazing... used chicken stock to cook the rice and then added stir fried mushrooms, red peppers, spring onions and kidney beans to the rice.used half a salmon fillet and flaked it and mixed it all up to put in tortilla.

I found the rice a bit bland - it needs quite a lot of salt - but the salmon recipe was delicious. Very quick and tasty.

Loved this .....had it on more than one occasion, also tried steaming the salmon and adding the coriander and red chilies in the last 3 minutes. Its a keeper.

Easy to make and delicious. I put the a little bit of coriander on before I grilled and then the rest after grilling. I put a big chunk of grated ginger in the rice too plus I also did 150g of rice. Served with green beans from our garden and Stir-fried courgettes - lovely!

This was really yummy and a a nice new way to cook salmon. The rice was delicious but I think next time I will add a little bit of extra ginger because I didn't think the amound specified on the recipe gave off enough flavour.

Found the rice a bit bland but really liked the salmon - hadn't grilled salmon like this before, as usually griddle it but it was a nice texture. Would probably add a bit more chili next time plus some stir fried veg

Very tasty - quick and fresh. I agree with Belkey's comment. The coriander should be sprinkled on after the salmon is cooked as it is quite unpleasant after it has been frazzled under the grill.

Would do this again, great flavours, although would recommend topping the salmon with extra fresh coriander as once it has been under the grill it was rather frazzled!

Gorgeous. Only alteration was to do 120g of rice. Served with stir fry veggies..nice added crunch. LOVED it, but wouldn't miss out the lime. One to be kept in my Binder. :-)

Lovely! You don't need the lime really. Did it with the stir fry which I ammended.
