- 5 cm ginger
- 1 cayenne pepper
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1 lime
- 2 tbsp ketjap manis (sweet soy sauce)

- 4 salmon fillets, skin on
- 300 g brown rice

- Peel the ginger and grate using a fine grater. Halve the cayenne pepper lengthwise, remove the seeds and finely slice the flesh. Slice the garlic.
- Squeeze half the lime. Mix the lime juice with the ginger, cayenne pepper, garlic, ketjap, soy sauce, caster sugar and olive oil to create a marinade. Place the salmon in the marinade and leave for 40 minutes at room temperature.
