When it comes to flavour, tender salmon brushed with a Japanese-inspired orange and miso glaze is hard to beat. Serve it with a wild rice mix for a dish that looks great on the plate.

Ingredients

Miso

2 tablespoons, white

Honey

½ tablespoons, level, clear

Orange(s)

½ medium, zest

Freshly squeezed orange juice

3 tablespoons, level

Blue Dragon Mirin

½ tablespoons

Salmon, raw

4 fillet(s), medium, skin on

Pumpkin Seeds

2 tablespoons

Sesame Seeds

2 teaspoons

Calorie controlled cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Sesame Oil

½ tablespoons, toasted

Spinach

100 g

Uncle Ben's Microwavable Long Grain & Wild Rice

2 pouch(es)

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the miso paste, honey, most of the orange zest, 2 tablespoons of the orange juice and the mirin, then add the salmon fillets and turn to coat. Set aside.
  2. Set a large nonstick frying pan over a medium heat, add the pumpkin seeds and toast, stirring, until fragrant, then transfer to a bowl and set aside. Mist the pan with cooking spray and increase the heat to medium-high. Cook the salmon fillets, skin-side down, for 5 minutes, then carefully turn over and cook for 2-3 minutes until just cooked through. Remove from the heat and scatter over the sesame seeds.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the remaining orange juice with the sesame oil, then toss with the spinach. Scatter over the toasted pumpkin seeds.
  4. Cook the rice to pack instructions. Serve the salmon, spinach salad and rice garnished with the remaining orange zest.

Notes

Instead of the rice, try serving this with 250g quinoa, cooked to pack instructions, just remember to adjust the SmartPoints.
