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!
