Ingredients

YOU'LL NEED:

  • 1 ½ tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp low-salt soy sauce
  • 1 thumb-sized piece ginger
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tbsp clear honey
  • 2 sweet potatoes scrubbed and cut into wedges (skins on)
  • 1 lime, wedges
  • 2 boneless skinless salmon fillets
  • 250g purple sprouting broccoli
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 red chilli, thinly sliced (deseeded if you don't like it too hot)

STEP BY STEP

  1. Mix together 1 tbsp sesame oil, the soy sauce, ginger, garlic and honey, to make the marinade. Add the salmon fillets and chill for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Put the sweet potato wedges into a glass bowl with the lime wedges.
  3. Cover with cling film and microwave on high for 12-14 mins until completely soft.
  4. Heat a non-stick frying pan and add a dew drops of sesame oil. Add the salmon fillets and cook over a medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes per side.
  5. At the same time, cook the broccoli in lightly salted boiling water for 4-5 minutes. Drain well. Alternatively: Spread the marinade over the broccoli and salmon and oven roast for 10-12 minutes.
  6. Remove the lime wedges and roughly mash the sweet potato using a fork.
  7. Mix in any remaining sesame oil, the chilli and some seasoning.
  8. Divide between plates, and top with the broccoli and salmon fillets.
  9. Serve sprinkled with sesame seeds.
Tip: Salmon contains omega 3, which is an essential fatty acid that we cannot produce ourselves, so we need to get it from the foods that we eat.
