I tried this fantastic healthy dish recently and below are the few simple steps you need to follow to make it from start to finish.
- 4 salmon fillets (5 oz/ 150g each)
- 5oz (150g) green beans, frozen
- 1cup (100g) brown rice
- 2tbsp sesame seeds
- 1tbsp sesame oil
- 8tbsp soy sauce
- 3tbsp maple syrup
- 1tbsp lime juice
- 4tbsp grated ginger
- 2 garlic cloves grated
Make the marinade by mixing all the sauce ingredients together. Season with salt and pepper.
Cut the skin off the salmon then rinse, dry and marinate in the earlier prepared sauce for 1 hour.
In the meantime, cook the rice according to the instructions on the packaging. Add the green beans to the cooking rice 4 minutes before the end of cooking, then drain. Next add the sweetcorn and mix well.
Preheat the oven to 450F (230C). Place the salmon into an oven proof dish leaving the marinade aside. Bake for 8-10 minutes and 3 minutes before the end of baking sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Transfer the marinade into a small saucepan and heat until it thickens, then mix in the sesame oil, take off the heat and set aside.
To serve, divide the rice and salmon between plates, then drizzle with the teriyaki sauce.
The Salmon is rich in Omega 3 is a fantastic source of protein and is packed with B Vitamins.
Green Beans are a great source of dietary fiber and Vitamin C.
Foods like Corn and brown rice which are low on the Glycemic Index (GI) which help reduce blood sugar levels and aid with weight loss.
Give it a try and let me know how you get on.
