SLIMMING WORLD SALMON & WILD RICE SALAD
This flavourful and adaptable dressing adds even more flavour to this simple salmon dish. Replace the salmon steaks with tuna to get a new flavour that’s still quite tasty.
I adore a tasty salad! However, you can grow rather tired of eating lettuce on Slimming World at times, so it’s fantastic to find a little different kind of “salad.” That’s why as soon as I saw this salad of salmon and wild rice, I grabbed it. It simply looks so delicious and ideal for when the weather gets hot and you don’t want to eat a hefty lunch.
Regarding the dressing
- 5 tablespoons light soy sauce
- One teaspoon grated and peeled root ginger
- One peeled and smashed garlic clove
- One red chilli, peeled and cut finely

- Set the oven’s temperature to 190°C/170°C Fan/Gas 5.

- Once the salmon is seasoned, put it on a baking dish covered with nonstick parchment paper, and bake it for ten to twelve minutes, or until it’s just cooked.
