Fish Supper

Soy, Honey and Sesame  Salmon with Stir fry veggies (serves 2)


This is great for a midweek supper when you are super hungry and need a quick meal but still want bags of flavour. I've used cabbage and red peppers in my stir fry just because they were in my fridge, you can use any veggies – its ideal to use the stuff that’s been sitting in your fridge for a while…

I love visiting the local Chinese supermarket especially for Asian vegetables and to stock up on the sauces used in this recipe. It also has a restaurant upstairs which serves amazing fresh sushi and dimsum!

I find making my own stir fry sauce tastes a lot better than any packets and also you know exactly what is going into your dinner. My time saving tip in this recipe is to use frozen ginger or garlic – I just buy this fresh and whiz it up in my mini food processor and pop it into my freezer.  Pull it out when you need it and just break a piece off to use.
