    4 Scottish Salmon Fillets

    2g Chilli Powder

    1g Ground Ginger

    40ml Soy Sauce

    40ml Sweet Chilli Sauce

    Zest and juice of 1 Lime

    250g sachet Cooked Basmati Rice

    150g pack Sweet Peppers

    4 Spring Onions

    2 Cloves of Garlic

    1 medium Carrot

    40g Frozen Peas

    2 level tsp Chilli Flakes

    5g Fresh Coriander

    Scottish Rapeseed Oil to fry


    Mix the chilli powder and ginger together, sprinkle over the salmon fillets and put to one side.

    Now empty the rice into a bowl and, using your fingers, separate the grains.

    Once peeled, thinly slice the carrot and garlic. Then thinly slice the spring onions and peppers, being sure to remove any seeds and white pith. Mix in with the rice.

    Stir fry the rice and vegetables in an oiled wok for about 8 minutes.

    Then, in a small saucepan, heat the soy and sweet chilli sauces along with the lime juice and zest.

    Grill the salmon for about 5 minutes.

    Add the peas and chilli flakes to the rice and cook for another 2 minutes.

    Serve the salmon on the rice and drizzle with the sauce and sprinkle over some fresh coriander.
