Japanese Salmon, Coconut Rice and Kale

I’m not sure of the health benefits of this one as I can imagine the white rice cooked in coconut milk is probably very bad for you but the fish is spectacular and it is perfect for during the week when time is tight.

60 ml mirin
50 grams soft light brown sugar
60 ml soy sauce
500 grams salmon, cod, monkfish, mackerel (any fish basically)
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 – 2 spring onions (halved and shredded into fine strips
400g can of coconut milk
400g can of coconut milk filled with basmati rice (see notes)
400g can of coconut milk filled with boiling water
Curly Kale (green beans, spinach or bok choi also works well)

Mix the mirin, brown sugar and soy sauce in a shallow dish that will take all 4 pieces of salmon, and marinate the salmon in it for 3 minutes on the first side and 2 minutes on the second. Meanwhile heat a large non-stick frying pan on the hob.
Cook the salmon in the hot, dry pan for 2 minutes and then turn the salmon over, add the marinade and cook for another 2 minutes.
Remove the salmon, add the rice vinegar to the hot pan, and warm through.
Pour the dark, sweet, salty glaze over the salmon and top with the spring onion

Coconut rice
Pour a can of coconut milk into a pan. Keep the Can!!
Fill the coconut milk can to the top with basmati rice
Pour into the pan of coconut milk
Fill the coconut milk can with boiling water

Add salt
Lid on, cook for 15 minutes

Put some Kale in a pan, boil with water for 4 mins and serve

Super simple. Super tasty.
