Marinated salmon and rice

rice and salmon

(my lunch)
This idea it was a quick and easy snack for lunch at work and when I recommended it to a colleague of mine, it was the focal point for romantic dinner for two.
For me since all I have was the microwave in the canteen, all I got was salmon kebabs/marinated salmon cut into cubes from the fish counter in a microwaveable cooking bag and microwaveable rice from a shop. Two items become a meal within 5 minutes (always follow the instructions on packaging or ask for advice).
For my colleague he got the same kebabs/marinated salmon cut into cubes. Baked them with tin foil and dish or since I was his fishmonger I provided him with the cooking bag and prepared it ready for him to bake. He did at gas mark 5 set or 190°c for 20 – 25 minutes or look on packaging for advice. He boiled some long grain rice (look on packaging) and presents it on a bed of lettuce.
The lucky boy also got his wife approval whereas for me, I get funny looks when I open my bag.

Recycling salmon carcass

At Christmas time I must of fillet loads of salmon and discard the carcasses for the customer. My advice is always ask for the carcass back. The amount of meat left on there you will be surprise how may fishcakes you can make, pates you can create and stock cubes for future date.


It’s very simple to scrape the meat of the bone. All you need is a spoon and start scraping the meat off. As you can see below how much meat was left.

Ask for the carcass back and re-work it, and there is plenty of recipes on the internet so use a search engine like google. have fun.
