  • Step 1

    Start by soaking the rice in a large bowl of cold water and set to one side.

  • Step 2

    Place the root ginger and garlic into a pestle and mortar and grind into a rough paste. Stir in the remaining marinade ingredients for the salmon.

  • Step 3

    Pat dry the salmon fillets and gently score with a sharp knife. Place into a shallow dish then pour over the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.

  • Step 4

    Remove the fish from the fridge then rinse and drain the wild rice. Add the wild rice to the cooking pot and together with the coconut milk and stock.

  • Step 5

    Place the Reversible Rack in the lower position into the cooking pot. Layer with a foil ‘nest’ then and add vegetables, drizzling over oil and seasoning.

  • Step 6

    Place top tier on the 2 Tier Rack, layer with foil then spray with cooking spray. Place marinated salmon on top and close the lid.

  • Step 7

    Move the slider to the middle position. Select STEAM MEALS, set temperature to 170°C, and set time to 8 minutes. Press START/STOP to begin, (this will STEAM for approximately 9 minutes before switching to STEAM MEALS).

  • Step 8

    Once the unit has finished cooking, slide the sldier to the far right position and carefully remove the racks and set the salmon to rest covered in foil. Select SEAR/SAUTÉ, setting the temperature level to 4, and cook off any liquid in the rice. This will take about 7 minutes for the liquid to absorb.

  • Step 9

    Transfer the cooked wild rice to a large bowl then add the remaining salad ingredients. Leave to absorb the dressing for 5 minutes before serving with the salmon and vegetables. Alternatively chill and serve cold.
