Salmon with rice & asparagus - recipe

Prep time

15 minutes

Cooking time

10 minutes




530g or 4 salmon fillets 

200g brown or wholegrain rice

A bunch of asparagus

Zesty Mayo from Lucy's Dressings

2 lemons

Splash of olive oil

Pinch of Maldon sea salt

Freshly ground black pepper



1. Start to cook the rice according to instructions.

2. Pre-heat the grill.

3. Place the salmon fillets on a plate, skin side down and squeeze with fresh lemon. Turn over and pat the skins dry using kitchen roll.

4. Place the fillets on the grill pan, skin side up and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and rub into the skin.

5. When the grill is hot, place the fillets under the grill, making sure that the fillets aren’t too close to the grill or they will burn.

6. The salmon fillets will normally take about 8 minutes to cook but check them frequently to make sure the skins are not burning.

7. Whilst the salmon is cooking check your rice. When you have about 5 minutes left to go until the rice is ready, drain most of the water out of the pan and crumble in half a chicken or vegetable stock cube. Stir once to ensure the stock is evenly spread.

8. Whilst the salmon and rice are finishing, steam the greens for about 4 minutes.

9. Drain the rice and remove the fillets from the heat.

10. Place rice in the bottom of a warm shallow serving bowl and place the fillets on top.

11. Drizzle Lucy’s Zesty Mayo over the rice and salmon fillet. 

Serve with a wedge of lemon and the steamed greens.
