Grilled Chilli & Cilantro Salmon With Ginger Rice

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Sarah_Jayne

I am a big fan of salmon. It is full of omega 3 and generally tasty and good for you. I am always looking for new salmon recipes to add to our rotation. I found this one in the August 2008 copy of BBC Good Food Magazine.

This is very easy and turned out quite tasty. I used brown basmati rice. My store did not have any red chilis, so used a green Serrano pepper. I doubled the amount of ginger (we like it a lot) and I think I would put some of the cilantro in the rice next time, also.
