Salmon, mint, coriander and cucumber Thai salad
This salad is a little different with the main leafy component being mint and coriander leaves. Loads of fresh zingy flavour contrasted with the salty, sweet umami of the dressing.
You will need: a baking tray and a mixing bowl. An old Jam jar comes i handy to mix the dressing.
Ingredients: Salmon, a bunch each of mint and coriander, cucumber, chilli, spring onion, garlic, fish sauce, sesame oil, honey, limes.
Bake or poach some salmon fillets. For this i cook fillets from frozen- just place in an over proof tray and bake at 170C for 35 mins then check.
Leave the salmon to rest while you focus on the salad
for the salad: prepare the cucumber by peeling the skin and scooping out the seeds (optional) the slicing diagonally
pick the leaves from a bunch of coriander and a bunch of mint. and finely slice a chilli and some spring onions.
for the dressing: crush, mince or finely dice some chilli and garlic ( go easy on the garlic as it can over power things). add these to a jam jar or mixing bowl. then add 1 part fish sauce 1 part lime juice, 1 part sesame oil and a teaspoon of honey. mix well and adjust to taste.
flake the warm salmon by and than them mix through with the salad ingredients. the add the dressing and mix.
