INSTRUCTIONS

Prep

Preheat broiler to on high with a rack at the top position;

Rinse well & roughy chop bok choi;

Thinly slice green onion on a diagonal;

Core & thinly slice cabbage;

Pat salmon dry; transfer to shallow dish, skin side down. Pour 1/3 of sticky sauce on salmon.

1Cook Rice

In a medium pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, & measured water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover & cook, without stirring, 12 to 14 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed & the rice is tender. Turn off the heat, add green parts of onion & shredded coconut, fluff with a fork. Cover to keep warm.

2Make Pickle Chili

Trim ends from chili pepper; thinly slice. In a small bowl, combine sliced chiles, pickle blend & a pinch of salt. Set aside.

3Sear Salmon

Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a medium skillet over medium high heat until shimmering. Add salmon, skin side down, cooking without moving, for 3-5 minutes until crust is crispy & slightly charred. Remove carefully, place on baking sheet. Pour ½ glaze over the salmon. 

4Cook Pak Choi & Cabbage

Heat ginger/onion/garlic blend in a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook for 15 seconds as it starts to get fragrant. Add cabbage, cook for 2 minutes. Add bok choi & continue to cook for 3-5 minutes until just tender. Set aside. 

5Finish Cooking Salmon

Place salmon in the oven, broil until salmon is well browned, caramelised, & just cooked through, 3–5 minutes. If you wish to have your salmon well done, leave in for 2 extra minutes, watching carefully. 

6Finish & Serve

Divide salmon, cabbage & bok choi between plates. Fluff rice with a fork & divide between plates as well. Spoon leftover glaze over salmon, top with sesame seeds & pickled chiles. Enjoy!
