  • 4 tbsp Soy sauce
  • 30g honey
  • 4 Cloves of garlic

Method

1. Finely chop the ginger, garlic and coriander then put the salmon fillets into a container with all of the marinade ingredients. Move the fillets around to ensure they are all coated evenly.

3. Chop up the courgettes into discs and remove the tough ends from the asparagus spears. When there are 12 minutes remaining on the microwave timer, fire up your grill on it’s maximum setting ready to cook the salmon and at the same time start heating the olive oil in a frying pan for the vegetables.

5. Whilst the vegetables are cooking, remove the salmon fillets from the marinade and grill on a high heat for 10 minutes or until cooked through. Turn the fillets every few minutes to prevent the marinate from burning.

6. Remove the potatoes from the microwave when they are done and add the olive oil, milk and mustard powder. Mash the potatoes until creamy then serve and enjoy!
