  1. 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.

  2. 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.

Great recipe, easy and loads of flavour - I find plain rice the best to go with it. You can also throw in a slosh of oyster sauce with the ginger, chilli etc. I also turn over the salmon for a bit under the grill to get the skin nice and crispy.

Lovely dish served it with noodles. My partner wasn't too fond of it so probably won't make it again but nice dish all the same.

Tried this and was a bit sceptical as seemed too simple to be very tastey but was pleasantly suprised as was delish and pretty healthy! One of my new faves!

A fantastic way to cook 'melt in the mouth' 'as it should be' salmon. The Thai flavours were aromatic and balanced well. I added sliced garlic, green beans, curly kale and pak choi to the stir frying ingredients whilst omitting the coriander. I doubled up the sauce and served with brown rice.

Quick, easy, and tasty! Me and my bf both loved it. I think I used too much chilli though, definitely less next time.
