  • 140g bulghar wheat
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Sticky chilli salmon
For an alternative sauce, replace the spring onions with 2 tsp shredded ginger. Add the zest and juice ½ lime, the juice ½ orange and 3 tbsp Thai sweet chilli sauce and bubble for 1 min to combine. Serve with Thai jasmine rice.


  1. Cook the bulghar wheat following pack instructions. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the salmon fillets and cook for 3 mins on each side. Stir in the spring onions and cook for 1 min. Add lemon juice, honey, orange juice and zest to the pan and bubble for 1 min more to make a sauce.

  2. Meanwhile, boil the green beans for 4 mins or until tender. Drain. Stir the bulghar wheat with a fork, mixing in the green beans, lemon zest and a little of the sauce. Serve the salmon on a bed of bulghar and beans, with the rest of the sauce spooned over.
