As with my other stir-fries, you  can replace the fish with any kind of protein you like. I would recommend tofu or chicken as alternatives for this dish.

Prep time 15 mins  Cooking time 10 mins

Ingredients

210 g salmon fillet, cut into bite-sized pieces
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
2 cm piece ginger, grated
2 tablespoons reduced-salt soy sauce
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 bunch gai lan (Chinese broccoli), cut into 5 cm lengths
1 medium red capsicum, thinly sliced
6 medium shallots, cut into 5 cm lengths
¼ cup fresh coriander leaves

Method

1. Combine the salmon, garlic, ginger and half the soy sauce in a bowl.

2. Heat half the oil in a wok over high heat. Add the gai lan, capsicum and 1 tablespoon water, then stir-fry for 2 minutes or until the vegetables are just tender. Transfer to a bowl.

3. Heat half the remaining oil and stir-fry the shallots for 1−2 minutes or until bright green. Transfer to the bowl with the other vegetables.

4. Heat the remaining oil and stir-fry the salmon for 2 minutes or until lightly browned.

5. Return the vegetables to the wok, with the remaining soy sauce, and toss to combine.

6. Divide the stir-fry between bowls and scatter with coriander leaves to serve.

Mish Tip : Gai lan (Chinese broccoli) is a leafy Asian green and, like regular broccoli, it is extremely nutritious. If you can’t find it, simply replace with any other leafy Asian green.
