I love being creative in the kitchen, and always try to create recipes with free-from at the heart of them. It's got to pass the Callum test, and then the hubby test otherwise it's back to the drawing board!

When I was recently approached by Norwegian Seafood Council and asked to create a recipe using some of their delicious salmon, I jumped at the chance. I was challenged with a recipe idea that would be simple, quick, fresh and of course tasty, and I think this recipe fits the bill.

It uses fresh ingredients, has a lovely zing from the spices and fresh ginger, and is a filling and healthy option.

Prep time: 10 minutes

(Makes 2 main meals)



  • 2 Norwegian Salmon Fillets
  • 1 tbsp Chinese 5 spice
  • 1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp gluten-free soy sauce
  • 4 cups cooked rice
  • 2 spring onion – washed and chopped
  • Bunch of coriander – washed and chopped
  • 1 lime
  • Red chilli – chopped (optional)



Preheat the oven to 180c/ 360f/ Gas 4 and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.

To make the glaze, add the Chinese 5 spice, ginger, olive oil and soy sauce to a small bowl, and mix until well combined.

Place the salmon fillets on the baking tray and baste with the glaze.

Bake in the oven for around 15-20 minutes until the salmon is just cooked (don’t overcook or the salmon will become tough)

Meanwhile, place the cooked rice in a large bowl before adding the spring onion, coriander and the juice of the lime and stir well.

Spoon the rice into a serving bowl.

Remove the salmon from the oven and place on top of the rice.

Sprinkle a little of the chopped red chilli if desired, and serve.
