Sticky Salmon and Chinese Fried Rice

Sticky Salmon

This is adapted from a recipe by Annabel Karmel, taken from “100 Family Meals”. I must admit this book has become a bit of a cookbook “bible” for me, the recipes are excellent; healthy, tasty, easy to cook and most importantly- the whole family loves them! The sticky marinade for the salmon creates a mouthwatering result, if your kids refuse to eat fish then this could be the recipe that converts them!

Ingredients (serves 5)


2 tbsp dark soy sauce

2 tbsp tomato ketchup

1 tbsp white wine vinegar

1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce

2 tbsp dark brown sugar

4 skinned salmon fillets (I like to use lightly smoked) cut into cubes

Chinese Fried Rice

300g basmati rice

2 medium carrots, finely chopped

100g frozen peas

olive oil/sesame oil

1 egg, beaten with a little salt

5 spring onions, sliced (reserve a few bits to garnish)


  • Place the salmon cubes and all the marinade ingredients in a bowl, combine and leave in the fridge until required (at least an hour, overnight if required)
  • Fry the rice and carrots in some olive oil for a few minutes, add twice the volume of water, some salt, cover and cook for 10 minutes. 4 minutes before the end of cooking, add the frozen peas.
  • Meanwhile, put some more oil in a frying pan/wok and add the egg, tilt the pan so the egg covers the pan and cook until you have a thin omelette, remove from the pan, roll into a sausage shape and cut into fine strips, set aside.
  • Remove the salmon from the fridge and put into a foil lined roasting tin, cook in a preheated oven (200 c) for 20 minutes.
  • When the salmon is nearly done, add some more olive and sesame oils to the frying pan and fry the spring onion for 2 minutes. Add the cooked rice mixture and stir fry for 2 minutes. At the end, add the omelette back in to the pan and heat through.
  • Serve the fried rice with the sticky salmon on top and garnish with the reserved spring onion.
  • Enjoy!
