We always recommend this dish to our guests when they are looking for a good wholesome meal minus the calories. A side of nicely roasted or steamed vegetables is also a great accompaniment to this dish.

This simple recipe can be followed with all types of fatty fish like sea bream and sea bass. Salmon was always our favorite and if you are willing we suggest you get an Organic or Wild Caught Salmon. You will be rewarded greatly and your guests will be super impressed.

Oyster Mushrooms

Add Sunflower Oil and Butter to a pan. Once the butter is sizzling, sauté the oyster mushrooms until brown and cooked. Season well with salt and pepper then move to a heatproof bowl

Add all the ingredients (except for mushrooms) into a small saucepan and bring to boil. Stir and once sugar is dissolved remove off flame.
Pour the liquid on top of the mushroom and allow them to cool until room temperature. You can store in the fridge covered once cool 

Salmon

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and whisk (I like to put it in an empty jam jar and shake it). Want more marinade? Double it! You can save some of the marinade for any baked fish recipe
Place Salmon in a baking dish
Pour the marinade on top of the salmon filet and add salt and pepper (not too much salt as the soy sauce is pretty salty)
Pop the Salmon in the oven for about 45 minutes (depending on the size of the fish). You’ll know when it’s ready when the side gets a little flakey to a fork’s touch. Be careful to not overcook the salmon as it will become dry
Garnish with pickled oyster mushrooms

Rice

Add Rice, Coconut milk and two pinches of salt to a sauce medium saucepan. Cook rice at low heat covered until liquid is fully absorbed (around 18-20 minutes). Can finish it of
In a separate saucepan, heat up sunflower oil and once hot add garlic and shallots. Once the garlic is brown, add the red pepper and cook till soft with a little crunch
Add the coriander, mint and toasted walnuts
Mix the rice with crunchy mix
Garnish with Chives and Green Onions
