What you will need: (serves 2)
○ 2 Cook from Frozen Salmon fillets with Chilli, Lime and Ginger sauce
○ 150g of orzo pasta
○ A handful of roquito peppers, deseeded and sliced
○ ½ red onion, finely chopped
○ Light olive oil
○ 2½ tbsps. fresh lime juice
○ 4cm of peeled fresh ginger, finely sliced
○ ½ tsp of sugar
○ 2½ tbsps. vegetable oil
○ 1 tbsp. sesame oil
○ Fresh chives
What you need to do (serves 2):
STEP 1: Preheat the oven to 190°C and place in the two salmon fillets for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, bring a small pan of lightly salted water to the boil and place in the orzo pasta.
STEP 2: Turn down the heat and leave the orzo to cook for approximately 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to stop from sticking. The orzo should be a firm, chewy texture when done. Drain in a colander and rinse.
STEP 3: Pour a tsp of olive oil into a frying pan and add the sliced peppers and red onion, frying for around 3 minutes until soft. Once done, mix in with the orzo pasta.
STEP 4: Dish out the orzo pasta into 2 separate dishes, flaking a salmon fillet over each. Drizzle the Chilli, Lime and Ginger sauce over the top and scatter with diced chives.
