Citrus, garlic and soy together remind me of my old takeaway favourites, but this is super-tasty and super-healthy.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
olive oil, for cooking
1 onion, finely chopped
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
3 oranges, juiced
1 lime, juiced
2 teaspoons lime zest, grated
4 salmon fillets
500g pak choi, leaves separated
4 teaspoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons runny honey
sea salt
black pepper

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C and line a baking tray with kitchen foil. Heat a little olive oil in a small pan, add the onion and one of the garlic cloves and cook for 4–5 minutes, until softened. Add the orange and lime juice and zest and simmer gently until it has reduced by about half and has a thicker texture. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Place the salmon fillets on the baking sheet and bake for 15–20 minutes, until just cooked through.
  3. Heat a little olive oil in another pan, add the pak choi and stir-fry for about 2 minutes. Add the remaining garlic, soy sauce and honey and continue to cook for another 2 minutes. Place the sautéed pak choi in the centre of a plate, put a salmon fillet on top and top with citrus sauce. Serve immediately, with some crushed new potatoes, if you like.

Good for:

  • Acne and eczema; arthritis; high cholesterol and high blood pressure

Star ingredient:

  • Citrus fruits are famous for vitamin C, but they don’t contain as much as you may think, and the amounts can be variable. However, another group of compounds that I’m really interested in are found in abundance here: the flavonoids. These are fantastic for the overall health of the cardiovascular system, as they help to strengthen the inner lining of blood vessels, making them more resilient to damage.
