Cuisine: Seafood
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons white chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons black chia seeds
  • 4 x 150g skinless salmon fillets
  • 2 bunches choy sum, washed and trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower oil
  • 3cm pice ginger, peeled and julienned
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • Noodles (see tip) or steamed brown rice, to serve
    Tamari Dressing
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce (see notes)
  • 2 tablespoons tamari (see notes)
  • 1 tablespoon Chinese rice wine
  • 1 teaspoon caster sugar
Instructions
  1. Combine white and black chia seeds on a plate. Press each salmon fillet in the chia seeds to evenly coat one side, then set aside.
  2. Remove the stems from the choy sum, cut in half if long and reserve. To make the tamari dressing, put all the ingredients in a small bowl and stir to dissolve the sugar.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over high heat. Cook the salmon, chia side down, for 2-3 minutes or until golden. Turn and cook for a further 2 minutes (for medium), or until cooked to your liking. Set aside and keep warm.
  4. Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a large wok or frying pan over high heat. Add the ginger and garlic and stir fry for 30 seconds. Add the choy sum stems and stir fry for 1-2 minutes, then add the choy sum leaves and stir fry for 1 minute more or until almost wilted. Add half the dressing and toss to combine.
  5. To serve, divide the choy sum between serving plates, top each with a piece of salmon and drizzle over a little of the remaining dressing. Serve with steamed noodles or rice.
Notes
If you want this dish to be gluten free, make sure you use gluten free noodles, oyster sauce and tamari.

Chia seeds are are a great alternative to breadcrumb crusts for those on a gluten free diet.
