I really want to try and keep posting regularly on my blog because I love sharing my meal ideas, beauty tips and travels with you guys, but second year of uni has been pretty intense so far. I thought I’d start doing more regular mini posts rather than big detailed infrequent ones.
For my first mini post I’m sharing my soy salmon recipe which is student friendly and healthy too!
I know what you’re thinking- “Salmon? How can that be student friendly???”. My answer to that is, ALWAYS CHECK THE REDUCED AISLE!
You’ll be surprised by how much the big supermarkets reduce their fresh products when they’re edging closer to their expiration date but nowhere near going off. In terms of fish I always freeze it straight after I buy it and defrost it at a later date.
The salmon I used for this recipe was reduced from £4 to £2.10 for a pack of two! If you don’t manage to find fresh salmon on offer, Tesco sell a pack of four frozen for fillets for £3.50.
I’m also collaborating with the Leeds Uni Girls Can campaign and you can find more healthy recipes and tips on their website…
1 salmon fillet
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp honey
1 tbsp pineapple juice (I used what was left over from tinned pineapple)
Cajun or a similar spice
Garlic or garlic powder
Grated fresh ginger (not essential)
Homemade couscous (takes under 10 mins!) with lightly fried frozen veg
Roasted courgette and onion
- Preheat grill to medium
- Mix all the marinate ingredients together in a bowl
- Pour over the salmon (leaving 1/4 of it behind) and leave to marinate for about 10 mins
- Grill the salmon for about 10 mins depending on the size of it, pouring 3/4 of the left over marinade mid way though cooking.
- Once the salmon is cooked (should start to flake) pour over the remaining 1/4 of the left over marinade.
Serve with anything from stir fry and noodles, roasted veg and couscous, boiled rice and salad- enjoy!
I hope you guys have enjoyed reading this post and will hopefully inspire you to make it- let me know how it goes in the comments below and keep your eyes peeled for future mini posts!
