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

small handful
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.
