Salmon with ginger, chilli & capers. Lay the salmon in a casserole dish that will fit it comfortably. We had set this dinner date in the diary many weeks before as Mark and Alex hadn’t seen each other in well over a year and you know what its like

Unfortunately I only had four bits of salmon between six of us, so like the kind and generous, good host I am gave mine up and had the left over beef casserole, which was even nicer reheated, so I wasn't complaining
Dice the salmonand add to the food processor together with the spring onions and the minced ginger. To be perfectly fair, we’d bought it a while ago because I wanted one and, having just moved into a new flat, we went for the cheapest option, Russel Hobbs
This particular combination is gingery, garlicky and very colourful. Add the chard, pakchoiand mushrooms and keep moving the veg about in the wok until the leaves are wilted and the mushrooms have become silky
Some people prefer a more brothy-type curry, some a creamier consistency, so it is up to you. Similarly, if you are making the trip to the Asian supermarket, pick up a huge bag of pakchoi (a leafy green vegetable that tastes way way better than cabbage), and cheap tins of coconut milk
I find pakchoiand tenderstem broccoli work well. I’ve seen a number of Asian style salmon dishes in foodie magazines and websites lately and whilst I love the flavours of soy sauce, ginger, chilli and sesame with salmon, I haven’t liked any of the recipes – they always seem very fiddly with everything happening at once
