This is one of my current favourite go-to weeknight meals for a delicious, nutritious, and well-balanced one-pot meal. Its taste and appearance belies the effort (Minimal) required to pull this together for dinner after a long day. There's no searing required here which makes clean up a breeze, and if you don't have a claypot, just use your rice cooker.
To amp up the protein, serve with a couple of fried eggs.
If you want more greenery, either up the herbs for garnishing or throw in some leafy greens towards the end of the cooking time.
To lower the GI of my white Japanese rice, I added Alchemy's fibre powder to the dashi. ++ more fibre
I use store bought Japanese garlic-chili oil for this. Convenient and it's Super tasty with minimal effort. Use whatever chili oil you like. Homemade, storebought, or skip it for kids.
You can replace the salmon fillets with sea bream, snapper, or cod. Whatever works best for you.
To garnish, top it off with all sorts of crispy or leafy things you have on hand. For the one pictured here, there was toasted sakura ebi (check out the cold angel hair pasta reels to use up the sakura ebi & shio kombu), tobiko, and cilantro. I'm also equally happy with just sesame seeds and a fried egg! Play around and have fun with it.
This is really such an easy way to get in all the required nutrients for your family! Enjoy.
