Salmon Marinade

I know this seems silly but I've been surprised by how many people ask me for this so I thought I'd do the one I did last night for our stir-fry. When we're trying to lose a bit of weight Joe and I eat a lot of stir-frys as a sort of vegetable vehicle for meat and fish. It's quick and easy and can be a really taste, healthy alternative if you are bored of the usual diet foods. This marinade would obviously work for other ways of cooking salmon - with pak choi and jasmine rice for instance - but this is great because you can add a bit of it to the vegetables while you are cooking the salmon to add a bit of flavour.

Salmon Marinade

Will cover 2-3 salmon fillets

3 tbsp soy sauce
3 tbsp teryaki
1/2 tbsp runny honey
1/4 tsp wasabi paste

Obviously you can use as much or as little wasabi as you like. This is quite strong but you are not actually rubbing it into the fish so it won't be as strong when it's finished.

1. Whisk all the ingredients together, pour onto the same fillets in a ziplock bag or tuppaware.

2. Put in the fridge for an hour or so. I then grill the salmon for 3 minutes on one side and 1 minute on the other so it's still really rare in the middle. Also smells a little less than frying!
