This recipe (although for one) can be tailored for more people – just double/triple etc. the ingredients.
1 salmon fillet
2 tbsp of honey
3 sprays of olive oil
4 tbsp of light soy sauce
2 garlic cloves/ 1 tsp of garlic puree
Half a mug of wholemeal brown rice
Your choice of vegetables to roast
Aluminium foil (or covered Pyrex dish)
(Optional) sesame seeds
If timed perfectly, all the parts of the recipe should be finished at the same time! Drain your rice and place a large spoonful into a pasta dish. Then pop your salmon fillet on top of the rice and layer your vegetables. Any excess sticky sauce from your foil, from where the salmon was cooked, can be drizzled over the top. Finally, for that ‘Master Chef’ touch, sprinkle a few sesame seeds on top! Voila!
Salmon – is high in protein and omega-3 fatty acids which makes it a great alternative to meat, especially since processed meat could increase breast cancer risk. It is also a source of vitamin D. Low levels of circulating vitamin D are linked to an increased breast cancer risk.
Vegetables – many studies indicate that a diet high in vegetables provides protection against breast cancer. For example, there appears to be a correlation between eating high quantities of non-starchy vegetables and foods high in carotenoids and a decreased risk of breast cancer.
Wholemeal rice – has a higher fibre content than white rice. There is increasing evidence that a diet high in fibre reduces breast cancer risk.
