Glazed Salmon with Brown Rice, Bill Granger

I love this dish and it is very much apart of our weekly repertoire.  It's easy to make on a week night - just need to remember to allow 15 mins for marinating - and is delicious.  Especially good if you are not a massive fish fan (but want some fish goodness), as the salmon is marinated and then caramelised in the cooking process so it doesn't taste at all fishy.

Also remember to put the brown rice on to cook early on as it takes a long time!

2 tbsp julienned fresh ginger
2 garlic cloves, sliced
3 tbsp oyster sauce
3 tbsp sweet chilli sauce 
1 tbsp soy sauce
700g salmon fillet
200g bok choy (pak choy)
1 tbsp mirin
1 tbsp soy sauce

Stir together the ginger, garlic, oyster sauce, sweet chilli sauce and soy sauce in a large bowl.  
Cut the salmon fillet into large chunks, add to the bowl and leave to marinate in the fridge for at least 15 minutes and up to 1 hour.  
Preheat the grill (broiler).
Arrange the salmon chunks in a single layer on a large baking tray and cook under the hot grill for 7 minutes (the fish should still be pink in the centre).
Meanwhile, halve the bok choy and steam or blanch for 1 minute, or until tender but still bright green and crisp.
Spoon the brown rice into serving bowls, top with the salmon and pan juices and serve with bok choy. 
Mix together the mirin and soy sauce and drizzle over the bok choy.
Serves 4.

I have a mountain of bok choy there - love it!
