  • salmon fillets 2
  • vegetable oil
  • sesame seeds 2 tbsp
  • broccoli 1 small head, cut into florets
  • sugar snap peas 100g
  • pak choi 2, quartered
  • spring onions 2, cut into 3cm-long pieces
  • sesame oil 1 tsp
  • coriander a handful, leaves torn


  • sriracha 4 tbsp
  • lime ½, juiced
  • mirin 1 tbsp


  • Step 1

    Coat the salmon fillets in 2 tsp of vegetable oil, put the sesame seeds onto a plate and roll the salmon fillets so they are completely covered. Season well and put onto a baking tray, skin-side down.

  • Step 2

    Heat the grill to high. Grill the salmon for 10 minutes until golden and cooked through.

  • Step 3

    Heat a frying pan or wok and put the broccoli in the pan with 50ml of water. Put on a lid and cook for 4-5 minutes until all the water has evaporated. Add 1 tbsp of vegetable oil and fry the broccoli for 2-3 minutes on a high heat, until browned a little.

  • Step 4

    Mix together the sriracha, lime juice and mirin. Add to the wok with the sugar snaps, pak choi and spring onions, and simmer gently for 2 minutes until the sauce has thickened and the veg is cooked. Drizzle the sesame oil over the veg.

  • Step 5

    Serve with the salmon fillet on top of the veg and scattered with coriander.
