Quick, Easy and Healthy Salmon Recipe

Maple Soy Salmon with Asian Greens & Red Rice

This super easy salmon recipe serves six, will take you less than an hour to cook and prepare, and is full of omega 3, vitamins and anti-oxidants. Did I mention it's freaking delicious? Well it is.

Salmon Ingredients: 

1.5 kilos salmon tails
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons melted butter
2 tablespoons olive oil 
4 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons dijon mustard  
2 teaspoons honey mustard
2 large garlic cloves, minced

Salmon Directions:

Add all the ingredients into a bowl and mix thoroughly until combined. 

Place salmon in shallow dish and pour over mixture.

Cover with cling wrap and refrigerate for 20 minutes or longer.

While salmon is marinating, prepare the Asian greens.

Asian Greens Ingredients:

5 small bunches bok choi, leaves separated
400 grams snow peas, ends removed
1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
2 large garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup chicken stock
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Asian Greens Directions:

Place all ingredients, except for vegetables, into a bowl and mix until combined. 

Place a wok over a high heat and pour in mixture.

Wait until mixture begins to bubble then add the vegetables.


Toss constantly so they are covered in the mixture.

 Stir-fry until vegetables turn bright green and begin to shrink. Do not over cook, you want them to remain crunchy.

 Final Touches:
To cook the salmon, place the marinated tails on a greased and lined baking tray skin side up, then brush with marinade.

Grill on 150 degrees Celsius for 5-10 minutes, watching constantly. When nearly cooked through, turn over and grill for a few more minutes. 

The salmon will be ready when it flakes when touched.

Serve the fish and greens with red rice to brighten up the plate.
