Teriyaki Ginger Salmon, Seeded Pak Choi, Persimmon & Avacado Salad with Date Rice

Teriyaki Ginger Salmon, Seeded Pak Choi, Persimmon & Avacado Salad with Date Rice

This was a total experiment.  I was combining ideas from smoothies, past recipes and so forth and I had that moment when I thought uh oh I like all these ingredients but a) will they go with the dishes and b) will the dishes mix.  Suffice to say I was more than pleasantly surprised at the taste combo, it was super delish, fresh tasting, healthy and had a slight exotic twist to it.

Visual Evidence

Now please remember I am rubbish with measurements for recipes so bear with when I say splash and to taste.


For the Salmon

  • Salmon for 4 or however many you are feeding
  • splash of Terriyaki sauce
  • pinch of rock salt
  • pinch of pepper
  • quarter lemon
  • thumb of freshly grated ginger

How To Make

Marinade the salmon for a few hours in all the above, keep covered in the fridge.  When ready, I put the oven on at  170 and cooked for approx half an hour, you will tell when ready. Easy Peasy

For The Rice


  • Jasmine rice
  • fish stock
  • handful of fresh dates, sliced lengthways then chopped
  • coconut oil

How To Make

I use double the quantity of water to the rice I am cooking.

In this instance I made up fish stock as the water content.  Firstly I melted a tablespoon of coconut oil, poured in the rice, coated it fully then poured in the stock, lowered the temp once it was boiling, covered and simmered for 10 mins, but check to see when ready.  The coconut oil I found gave it such a delicious hint.  Once cooked, pop in the dates to the rice, mix and cover for five minutes to let it blend and soften.  Salt & pepper to taste as you like.

For The Salad


  • One avacado
  • One persimmon (kaki)
  • Sprinkle of Omega 3 seed mix

How To Make

Very easy this one, sliced up avacado, layered prettily with sliced persimmon.  Sprnkle over some Omega 3 seed mix and salad dressing.  For the salad dressing I personally use my favourite which is a combo of olive oil, balsamic, mustard, honey or substitute sweetener and dill.  Squidge a bit of lemon if the salad is sitting for a bit so the avacado doesn’t go grey.

Seeded Pak Choi


  • One bunch of pak choi
  • soy sauce
  • 2 x tbspns of coconut oil
  • Omega 3 seed mix

How To Make

Heat up the coconut oil, make sure there is enough for the pak choi leaves to lie in, not covered but half way up.  Cut the pak choi in half lengthways then again.  Once the oil is hot pop in the pak choi for literally a couple of minutes, turning it over so just soft.  Take out, lay in a dish, pour on a dash of soy sauce, I used the dark variety and then the seeds.

If you look at all the ingredients, there is nothing here that is unhealthy, sugar is to a minimum, low carbs, healthy fats and huge nutritional benefits.  This meal really came around also from having a mixture of things left over and wondering whether they would combine, it was a risk but it paid, believe me, it will be made again πŸ˜€  You can also easily edit this feast to cater for a Low FODMAP diet.

This feast is brought to the fun foodie event, Fiesta Friday #114

Though Archie looks like he’s the busy chef, as you can really see he slept on the job!


Wishing you a sunny and happy weekend, Justine xx
