Cooking Instructions

  • Put some water on to boil for the rice
  • Chop/ dice all the vegetables into small chunks
  • Sprinkle the seasoning on to the salmon fillet and rub in with spoon
  • Put the rice in the boiling water and set a timer for 11 mins
  • Dry stir fry the vegetables in a non stick pan as follows
  • Start with the red pepper after a couple of minutes add the courgette
  • Fry off for a couple more minutes, then add the onion
  • At the very end when all the veggies have some colour on them, add the mushroom
  • Put a kettle of water on to boil
  • Add the balsamic vinegar and Worcestershire sauce to the vegetables
  • Turn the vegetables to coat them and turn the heat down
  • Once the rice is cooked but firm, drain it and rinse with boiling water to flush away excess starch
  • Put the vegetables in with the rice and combine. Leave it off the heat.
  • Now put a smearing of cooking oil in your stir fry pan, put it on a medium-high heat and add the salmon fillet skin side down
  • After 3 mins turn the salmon on to the seasoned side and cook until cooked through. Look for the white milky fats oozing out the sides for a sign it’s ready
  • If you have any concerns that the salmon isn’t cooked in the middle, give it 30 secs on medium in the microwave
  • Serve! The rice should still be piping hot
