cooking with kids

The boys cooked this themselves tonight…
KidsChaosCookingWithKidsSalmonPakchoiWith my shoulder still out of action, and my arm in a sling for the second month… (long story, fell of my bike) – the boys have been doing a LOT of cooking themselves. This one is easy, quick and very delicious, so I’m quickly writing it up to share with you… (and so that they can find it again for the next time they make it!)

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Mix the olive oil, soy sauce, chopped ginger and garlic in a small bowl and mix together. Season with salt and black pepper.


1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
5 cm fresh root ginger, peeled and finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
4 salmon fillets
2 pak choi, quartered lengthways
200g mushrooms, (we used Oyster Mushrooms – grown from our own box!
pinch salt
pinch ground black pepper

Place salmon fillets, the pak choi, and mushrooms on a roasting tin, then ‘dribble’ (their words, not mine) over the garlic and ginger mixture. Pop into the oven to roast for 20–25 minutes. Serve with brown rice.
