Salmon Wrapped in Seaweed

This is one of my favourite main courses to make. It is so different and the taste is superb. You can try halibut or sea bass with this method too.

Ingredients (serves 4 as main course)

Prep/cook time is 40 minutes.

Wasabi Drizzle
4 salmon fillets skinless 8 seaweed sheets (sometimes called Nori)
1 inch cube fresh ginger grated
Handful fresh coriander chopped
1 small red chilli chopped very finely
1 tablespoon soy sauce
Juice 1 lime
1 clove garlic crushed
1 teaspoon sesame oil
4 medium pak choi
1 tablespoon sesame seeds


Start by mixing the ginger, lime, garlic, sesame oil, soy sauce, chilli and the coriander. Do this in a bowl and set aside.

Now to each salmon fillet, lay down 1 fillet on a sheet of seaweed. Take of the mix and spread over the salmon. Take another sheet and place on top and set aside. Do this to the remaining fillets. You need the mix to dampen the seaweed so it wraps, you may need to set these aside for 3-5 minutes.

Now wrap the fillet in the seaweed so it clings tightly to the salmon.

Steam over a medium heat for 15-18 minutes in a bamboo steamer or regular steamer.

While you are doing this steam your pak choi

To serve place a salmon wrap on a plate along with a pak choi. Sprinkle the sesame seeds over each pak choi. Drizzle the wasabi around the plate and serve.
