Soy Glazed Salmon


This cooks just as well on an outdoor grill as it does in the oven (for those British weather days!). As well as being low in saturated fats, it’s also packed full of antioxidants, including Vitamin E, which is renowned for its healing properties. This is a fantastically delicious and simple dish, which will appeal to even the most picky of eaters.  If children ever complain about eating fish, this recipe always wins them back!

Jennifer’s Tip:

If you like some heat in your food, add half a red chilli, de seeded and finely chopped, to the marinade.
