Hints and tips

  • Mint, Thai basil or basil can be used if shiso leaves are unavailable.
  • Instead of serving as salmon fillets, you can also flake the salmon into the salad.
  • Extend or decrease the cooking time of the salmon, depending on the preferred degree of doneness.
  • Gochujang is a Korean chilli paste. It can be found in Asian grocers and some supermarkets.
  • Please note our recipes are developed using tablespoons that hold 20 ml (4 teaspoons).
  • This recipe has been developed in our 45 cm combi steam oven. If you’re cooking in our 60 cm combi steam oven, follow steps 1-6 to roast the salmon and kumara, then move the universal tray to shelf position 4 when changing the function to Combi Grill (step 7). This will enable caramelisation of the salmon.
