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.
