Ingredients (2 serves) :

  • 1 ½ tbsp sesame oil

  • 1 tbsp tamari sauce 

  • Thumb-sized piece ginger grated

  • 1 garlic clove, crushed

  • 1 tsp manuka honey

  • 2 sweet potatoes, scrubbed and cut into wedges 

  • 1 lime, cut into wedges

  • 2 boneless salmon fillets

  • 250g broccolini 

  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds

  • 1 red chilli, thinly sliced (deseeded if you don't like it too hot)

Method

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180°C and pre-line a baking tray with baking paper. Mix together 1/2 tbsp sesame oil, tamari, ginger, garlic and honey. Put the sweet potato wedges, skin and all, into a glass bowl with the lime wedges. Cover with cling film and microwave on high for 12-14 mins until completely soft.

  2. Meanwhile, spread the broccolini and salmon out on the baking tray. Spoon over the marinade and season. Roast in the oven for 10-12 mins, then sprinkle over the sesame seeds.

  3. Remove the lime wedges and roughly mash the sweet potato using a fork. Mix in the remaining sesame oil, the chilli and some seasoning. Divide between plates, along with the salmon and broccolini.

** For males or physically active females, add an additional sweet potato.
