4 Salmon fillets – skin removed

2 x fresh corn cobbs

2 x bunches of fresh asparagus

2 tbs sesame seeds

1/4 cup soy sauce

1 tsp finely grated fresh ginger

1 teaspoon of finely chopped fresh garlic

200g fresh rocket

2 tsp sesame oil

1 tbs olive oil

salt & freshly ground pepper


Step 1

Season both sides of the salmon with salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil n a large frying pan over medium/high heat. Add the salmon in batches and cook for 2-3 minutes each side or until golden brown but still pink in the middle. Add the salmon to a chopping board and set aside to cool slightly. Repeat with the remaining salmon. Cut the salmon into cubes.

Step 2

Meanwhile place the corn in a large seasoned saucepan of boiling water for approximately 5 – 7 minutes. Then add the asparagus for a further 2 – 3 minutes until tender & crisp. Drain and cut the corn off the cobb.

Step 3

Heat the frying pan over medium heat. Add sesame seeds and cook, tossing until lightly toasted

Step 4

Whisk together the soy sauce, ginger, garlic and sesame oil in a small jug. Place the rocket, asparagus & corn on a plate and add the cubed salmon on top. Drizzle with the sauce then sprinkle with the sesame seeds. YUM!

    1. Hi Cheri, it’s a delicious leafy veggie! You can get it at the supermarket – it is also known as Arugula 🙂
