Easy Summer Entertaining with Regal Salmon

The chaos of the festive season is upon us with endless (but oh-so-fun!) end of year lunches, drinks and catch ups.  If it's your turn to host, but you don't want to be slaving over a hot stove in the heat of summer, then this is the recipe for you!  Easy to prepare in advance in a "throw it all together kind of way", absolutely delicious, light for a hot summers day yet completely satisfying - this Regal Salmon Summer Salad is the one for you!

To prepare the Salmon marinate:
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 cloves crushed garlic
2cm fresh peeled and finely grated ginger
1 tablespoon brown sugar

Pour marinate over one or two packets of Regal Salmon Fresh Cuts Stir Fry and gently combine.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

While the salmon is marinating, prepare your salad.  This can be anything you like but I created mine with the following:

Thinly shredded red cabbage
Thinly shredded kale
Finely chopped mint
Finely sliced red onion
Red and yellow cherry tomatoes
Asparagus spears, gently sautéed in butter
1 cup cooked Israel couscous, mixed with a splash of olive oil

Set your prepared salad aside and gently stir fry your Regal Salmon on a medium high heat.  Salmon takes no time to cook at all so lunch is ready in a flash.  Either serve immediately or chill and serve.

Regal Salmon is so tender that is literally just flakes away.  The crisp salad vegetables keep the meal fresh and light while the Israel couscous fills you up without feeling heavy.  Served with a icy cold bubbles, this is my ideal festive lunch to share with friends.
