Honey Soy Salmon, Saffron Brown Rice, Edamame Beans

Being half iranian, I’ve been eating Saffron rice since childhood and I am absolutely in love with the taste and smell of Saffron in general. I wanted to make myself a healthy Sunday dinner so I tried the traditional saffron rice recipe using brown rice and it came out perfectly! I paired it with Salmon and the burst of flavours from the marinade I had made complimented it beautifully!

If you fancy this healthy but delicious meal bursting with flavour all you need is:

1 and a half tablespoons of Honey

2 tablespoons of low salt Soy sauce

1 teaspoon of grated fresh Ginger

2 fillets of Salmon

1 cup of Brown rice

Pinch of Saffron

1 cup of edamame Beans

3 cups of water

half a handful of coriander

Method

Mix the honey, soy and ginger in a cup with the coriander

Pour this mixture over the Salmon and let the salmon marinate in the fridge for an hour

10 minutes before cooking the salmon remove from the fridge to let cool

Add the saffron to a small bowl and add 2 tablespoons of hot water and let sit

Heat the oven to 180 degrees

Put the rice and 3 cups of water in a small pan and cook on a medium heat with the lid on for 20-25 minutes

15 minutes after putting the rice on, put the salmon in the oven and cover – allow 20 minutes to cook

In a seperate pan, add the edamame beans to hot water and cook on medium heat for 8- 10 minutes (depending on how soft you like them)

When the brown rice is soft and the water has been absorbed pour the saffron liquid with the saffron itself into the rice and mix well

Whe the salmon is cooked serve on a plate and pour the juices over the salmon, and the rice and edamame and enjoy!
