    Pan fried salmon with sushi rice & sugar snap peas

    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 30 minutes
    • Total time: 35 minutes

    Serves: 4


    250g sushi rice
    200g trimmed sugar snap peas, halved lengthways
    200g spinach, washed
    1 tsp vegetable oil
    2 x 200g packs Waitrose 2 Wild Alaskan Keta Salmon Fillets, skinned
    2 tbsp green nori sprinkle
    2 tbsp Chinese rice wine vinegar
    2 tsp caster sugar
    2 tsp black or white sesame seeds
    4 tsp light soy sauce


    1. Put the rice in a large saucepan and add 500ml water. Bring to a simmer and cook gently for about 10 minutes until the rice is just tender and the water has been absorbed. Stir in the peas and spinach, in batches if necessary, and cover with a lid. Leave to stand for 10 minutes.

    2. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the salmon for 4-5 minutes on each side until pale golden and cooked through.

    3. Mix the nori, rice wine vinegar and sugar together and stir into the rice. Spoon onto serving plates, top with the fish and sprinkle over the sesame seeds. Serve with light soy sauce to drizzle over.

    Cook’s tipThis recipe is equally delicious made ahead and served cold from the fridge, simply flake the fish over the rice instead.
