Honey Soy Salmon with Thai Salad!
I needed to use up some veg in the fridge. I hate waste!! So if it needs using throw it in!!
Julienne (ish) your veg (posh word for chopping veg into long thin strips) However- to add bulk and noodle type vibes I #spiralized a courgette! If it’s long and thin- I tend to spiralize! Especially when trying to keep carb intake down!! Prep the salad first.
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup honey
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Heat the oil in pan – meanwhile whisk together the soy sauce, honey and garlic. Set aside.
Cool the salmon skin side down till almost cooked through.
Add one table spoon of butter and melt. Then add the sauce. Allow to thicken for a minute spoon over the salmon
The veg that needed using this particular day:
Finely chop a handful of coriander
Finely chop one green chilli
Whack it all in a bowl!
For the dressing:
1/4 cup peanut butter or other nut butter
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 garlic cloves, grated
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey
Pinch salt such as Maldon
Put all dressing ingredients into a blender- whizz up. Job done! Dress the bugger out with coriander!
