  • ½ Essential Pointed Cabbage
  • 1 clove/s garlic, finely chopped
  • 3 tsp Cooks’ Ingredients Frozen Chopped Ginger
  • 15g coriander, stalks finely chopped, leaves roughly chopped
  • 30g Cooks’ Ingredients Frozen Miso Butter
  • 2 tsp light soy sauce
  • 260g pack Scottish salmon fillets
  • 1 red chilli, finely sliced
  • 275g pack lentil protein noodles
  • 1 unwaxed lime, juice of ½, ½ cut into wedges


  1. Core and shred the cabbage, then put in a deep, microwave-safe dish or bowl along with the garlic, 2 tsp ginger, the chopped coriander stalks, 20g miso butter (about 5 pieces) and the soy sauce. Mix together, cover with a lid or plate and microwave on high for 2 minutes until softened.

  2. Stir the cabbage mixture and sit the salmon fillets on top, dividing the remaining 10g miso butter, 1 tsp ginger and sliced red chilli between the tops of the fillets. Cover again and microwave on high for 3 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillets, until the fish is completely cooked through and opaque, and can be flaked with a fork. Set aside for minutes, still covered, to rest.

  3. Meanwhile, put the noodles in a separate bowl, cover with a plate and microwave on high for 2 minutes 30 seconds until piping hot. Uncover the fish and carefully transfer the salmon to a separate plate. Add the hot noodles to the cabbage mixture with the coriander leaves and lime juice. Divide between two serving plates or shallow bowls. Top each with a salmon fillet and serve with lime wedges.

Salmon and other oily fish are high in vitamin D, which helps your body absorb calcium – essential for healthy bones and muscles.
