How To Make Oven-Baked Salmon with White & Black Sesame Seeds on Brown Basmati Rice by Honest Mum The whole family are salmon-lovers here so this is our go-to dinner at least once a week and particularly on the weekend.

A healthy, low GI, slow releasing, balanced meal bursting with nutrients this dish will keep you full for hours.

If you’re put off with the time it takes to boil rice, you can always use a microwavable sachet found at most supermarkets. I like to boil up a huge pan then keep it in the fridge to use for a few days afterwards.

You can find the sesame seeds in all good supermarkets or Chinese specialist supermarkets.

We have a fishmongers near us we like to support who supplies the freshest salmon fillets in town.

For garnish:

  • Finely chopped coriander
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped (not for the kids
  • Drizzle of sesame oil and soya sauce

Method:

Add 300ml boiling water and a little salt to a large pan and bring to the boil. Add the rice. Cover and cook for 10-12 mins until tender.

Heat the oven to medium (450 degrees F). Drizzle oil onto a baking tray and brush, place the salmon on top and drizzle with more olive oil, sprinkle the sesame seeds over and bake for 10 minutes until cooked through.

    This looks so pretty. I am a big fan of white sesame seeds but I have not come across the black ones before. I will have to look out for them.

    I like to eat wild salmon once in a while but I never thought of putting a handful of black and white sesame seeds on top, something to keep in mind for the future, thanks!
