Grilled Chilli & Cilantro Salmon With Ginger Rice

"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."

  1. 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.


I am originally from the Philadelphia area of the United States but have been living in London, UK since 1996. I now have dual American and British citizenship. I became a widow at the age of 27 in 2004 but have managed to fall in love again and was married again on July 19, 2008. I have a double major honors degree in sociology and politics and am slowly working my way through a Masters. I am a wanabee writer but until that dream becomes a reality I work in internet marketing where I build websites for profit. So, it is nice to come to a site like this and just enjoy being on the internet rather than using it as a work environment. I am a BBW (big woman) but over the past two years I have lost over 80lbs and am working my way down the scales slowly but steadily. These days, I am trying to eat a lot less meat. So, I am trying to have as many vegetarian recipes in the week as I can manage. I have started a blog - <a href="">Weekend Carnivore</a> where I blog about trying to eat a mostly vegetarian diet. I share a lot of my discovered recipes there. If I make one of your vegetarian recipes and I managed to take a good photo of it, chances are I will blog about it and tell everybody how much I enjoyed it.
