We were delighted to work with Annabel recently and were delighted to secure a TV cookery slot on Ireland AM, amongst other features. Here is what Annabel cooked live on the show.
Annabel Karmel’s Sticky Salmon & Rice
Your growing body needs many types of nutrients, and salmon is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, which help brain growth and performance. So eating salmon can actually make you smarter! Here’s a clever Asian-inspired idea that is packed with flavour.
*Gluten Free *Egg Free *Makes 4 portions
1 tbsp ketchup 2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp sweet chilli sauce
150g salmon fillet, cut into large chunks
1 tbsp olive oil a knob of butter
1 small onion, peeled and diced
1⁄2 red pepper, deseeded and diced
50g carrot, peeled and diced
50g courgette, diced
1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
250g cooked basmati rice
2 tbsp frozen or tinned sweetcorn
of fresh coriander leaves (optional)
1 Preheat the oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C/Gas 6. Line a baking sheet with foil.
2 Mix the ketchup, half the soy sauce and half the sweet chilli sauce together in a bowl. Add the salmon and coat in the mixture.
3 Spoon onto the baking sheet and cook in the oven for 10 minutes, until just cooked through.
4 Meanwhile, place the oil and butter in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the onion, pepper and carrot and fry for a few minutes. Add the courgette and garlic and fry for a further 2 minutes.
5 Stir in the rice and sweetcorn and toss over the heat.
6 Season with the remaining soy and sweet chilli sauces. Divide the rice between four plates and top with the salmon pieces and coriander, if using.
Why not try this?:
Go veggie by swapping the salmon for tofu. Simply dust in flour, marinate in the sauce and add to the pan with the courgette and garlic.
