Tips for fussy eaters

Go easy on the sambal oelek!

Pro tip

In French, 'Mise en place' means 'putting in place'. When cooking, it refers to the prepping and chopping of ingredients in advance. In our experience it helps unnecessary flapping when things get hot in the kitchen!

Before you start

Please wash your hands and rinse all fresh fruits and vegetables prior to cooking.

1 Prep

Peel and finely slice the shallots. Peel and finely chop (or grate) the ginger. Bash the lemongrass with a rolling pin, slice it down the middle length-ways, remove the tough outer layers and chop the soft inner core finely. Chop the salmon into bite-size cubes. Trim and roughly chop the green beans.

2 Boil rice

Rinse the jasmine rice. Add the rice, a pinch of salt and the measured water to a pan with a lid and bring to a boil over a high heat. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook for 10-12 min or until the water is absorbed and the rice is cooked. Once cooked, remove the pan from heat and keep covered until serving.

3 Prep spinach

Meanwhile, boil a kettle. Trim the spinach and place it in a colander. Pour the freshly boiled water from the kettle over it. Once the spinach is cool enough to handle, give it a good squeeze and chop it roughly.
