Sesame and Ginger Salmon

This is probably my favourite meal – I absolutely love salmon. The Asian-inspired flavours go beautifully with salmon and, when combined with gooey sweet potato wedges and plenty of veggies, it’s simply delicious.



Serves 2


2 salmon fillets

1tbsp Tamari sauce

1tbsp Chinese cooking wine (optional)

2 spring onions, chopped

Knob ginger, peeled and grated/finely chopped

1 garlic clove, chopped

1 tbsp sesame seeds


To serve:

Toasted sesame oil

Fresh coriander (optional)

Steamed broccoli

Sweet potato



1.) Preheat the oven to 180°C fan (if you’re making sweet potato wedges, start by making these).

2.) Place the Tamari, toasted sesame oil, Chinese cooking wine (if using), spring onions, ginger and garlic into an ovenproof dish. Coat the salmon in the sauce  and then turn it over so that the skin side is down. Sprinkle it with the sesame seeds and cook in the oven for 15 minutes.

3.) When you’re ready to serve it, drizzle over the toasted sesame oil and serve with steamed broccoli and the sweet potato wedges, if using.
