salmon rice in silver spoon


This recipe is traditionally a Japanese dish cooked in a clay pot. The key to this dish that makes it Japanese is the use of dashi, sake and mirin, which imparts Japanese flavours, but you can really substitute the protein to make a different dish. For example,  you can use lean chicken instead of salmon, replace edamame for frozen spinach. This is a really versatile and nutritious yet tasty meal that we think the whole family will enjoy.  

Serves: 4 to 6 pax 

450g Salmon filet  
3 cups short grain rice 
8 to 10 Fresh Shiitake mushrooms 
½ cup edamame (removed from pods)
2 ½ tbsp Shoyu 
1 tbsp dashi powder 
2 tbsp cooking sake 
1 tbsp mirin 
3 heaping tbsp Alchemy Fibre™ For Rice 
Oil or Butter (optional) 
Furikake (optional)
