You’ll need:

For the marinade:
*1 tbsp soy sauce
*2 tbsp ketchup
*1 tbsp white wine vinegar
*1/2 tsp sweet chilli sauce
*1 1/2 tbsp dark brown sugar
*2 x 200g salmon fillets skinned and cut into 4cm (1 1/2in) cubes

For the rice:
*200g basmati rice
*65g carrots, finely chopped
*75g frozen peas
*1 tsp vegetable oil
*1 egg, lightly beaten with a little salt
*25g butter
*65g onion, finely chopped
*2 tbsp soy sauce
*1 spring onion, finely sliced
*an ovenproof dish
*a baking tin, lined with tin foil

1. Place all the marinade ingredients (except the fish) in a pan and stir over a gentle heat until the sugar dissolves. Pour into an ovenproof dish and leave to cool. Add the salmon and marinate for at least 1 hour.
2. Cook the rice in a pan of boiling water with the chopped carrots. About 4 minutes before the end of the cooking time, add the frozen peas.
3. Heat the oil in a frying pan or wok and add the egg, tilting the pan so that it coats the base, and cook until it sets as a thin omelette. Remove from pan, roll into a sausage shape and cut into thin strips.
4. Add the butter to the pan and sauté the onion for 2 minutes and season. Add the rice mixture and the soy sauce. Stir-fry for 2 minutes. Mix in the egg and spring onion and heat.
5. Pre-heat the grill and cook the salmon in the tin for 5 minutes, turning and basting occasionally until cooked.
6. Remove the salmon from the baking tin and serve with rice.
