What you need to do

    For the salmon

    • In a small bowl, combine the tamari, sesame oil, ginger, pepper, and garlic; and pour over the salmon. If time allows, leave the salmon to marinade for at least 2 hours.
    • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Place the salmon fillets, skin side down, on a baking dish. Sprinkle with sugar and sesame seeds.
    • Bake the salmon in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. Garnish with chives and serve with coconut rice.
    • For the rice
    • Rinse the rice a few times, until the water runs clear.
    • Place the rice into a medium saucepan along with the coconut milk, water, sugar and salt and place over a medium-high heat.
    • When the rice comes up to the boil, stir well, then cover the pan and reduce the heat to low.
    • Simmer gently for 15 minutes, then turn off the heat and leave to rest for 10 minutes.
    • To serve, mix the rice with a fork and season with more salt if necessary.
