    Also known as scallions or green onions, spring onions are in fact very young onions, harvested…

  • small bunch coriander, roughly chopped
  • squeeze of lime



    The same shape, but smaller than…


  1. Put the teriyaki and chilli sauces in a shallow dish and mix together well. lay the salmon fillet in the marinade flesh-side down. Set aside while you prepare the rice and pak choi.

  2. Put the rice in a medium saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 20 mins until the rice is tender and has absorbed all the water – 6 mins before the end of cooking, put the pak choi in a colander and sit on top of the rice to steam, covered with a lid.

  3. Meanwhile, heat the grill to high and place the salmon fillet, skin-side up, on a baking tray lined with foil. Grill for 4-5 mins, basting with the marinade, then turn over and grill for a further 3 mins. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds and cook for 1 min more until the seeds are toasted and the salmon cooked through.

  4. Stir the spring onions and coriander through the rice and serve topped with the salmon fillet. Spoon over any excess marinade left in the baking tray, and add a squeeze of lime. Serve the steamed pak choi alongside.

Tried this with sweet potatoes boiled lightly and then sautéed!! For me Wow. Contrast from salmon and crispy potatoes. Try it.

I'm always on the lookout for recipes for one. I tried this tonight. I didn't have any Pak Choi (although I do like it) but I did have some fennel, so I served that instead. I didn't have any teriyaki sauce, so I made my own with soy, ginger, garlic, sugar, honey and white wine vinegar (I would have used Rice Wine vinegar if I had not thrown the dregs out last week). Absolutely excellent dinner, really enjoyed it.

Enjoyed this but had to make some adjustments. Firstly my oven (and the grill) malfunctioned after cooking just one side of the salmon (!) and I had to finish off in the pan with the sesame seeds. Still worked well. I cooked the rice with vegetable stock to give it more flavour and it was delicious as a result (after, I thought I should have added some peas with the spring onion). Realised the bok choi was going to be a bit dull, so added an additional side of sauted spinach (in garlic and chilli).

Absolutely loved this meal! First time iv had Pak Choi, but will definitely make this again! I chopped the coriander quite small and mixed it in with the rice for the last few minutes before serving..... Family loved it!

The salmon was great cooked this way. The rice was okay but a bit boring. I have made the salmon part a few times and served with other things. Very easy and tastes great.

Very easy, ready in a minute, nice taste with grilled sesame and salmon was cooked to perfection thanks to guidance in the recipe. I will make it again, before my boyfriend asks me because he fell in love with that dish!!!
