Teriyaki salmon and kale bowl

step by step

  • 1In a jug, mix the teriyaki sauce, chilli, ginger and lime juice and zest. Boil the kale and soya beans for 4-5 minutes, drain and put in a bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of teriyaki mixture and toss.
  • 2Put the salmon skin-side down in a nonstick pan over a medium- high heat for 3 minutes. Pour in the remaining dressing and 2 tablespoons of water; cook for 3 minutes. Turn the salmon over; cook for 3-4 minutes more until almost cooked, adding a splash of water if the sauce begins to catch. Add the honey and turn the salmon in the sauce to coat. Take off the heat, roughly flake the salmon and discard the skin.
  • 3Heat the quinoa according to the pack instructions, toss with the sesame oil and toasted seeds.
  • 4Divide the quinoa between two bowls. Top with the kale, salmon, sauce from the pan and avocado. Serve with lime wedges.
