  • 100 g (3.5 oz) fresh salmon, cut into cubes
  • 100 g (3.5 oz) raw prawns
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 thumb-size piece of ginger, peeled and finely diced
  • 1 spring onion, sliced
  • 100 g (3.5 oz) red bell pepper, diced
  • 100 g (3.5 oz) shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 120 g (4.2 oz) cabbage, shredded
  • 1 Tbsp Tamari sauce


  • Heat a frying pan to medium heat.
  • Add the salmon cubes and fry each side for a few seconds until golden, it does not need to be cooked through unless you prefer it like that. 
  • The salmon will release lots of fat so you do not need to add any. 
  • Once the salmon is cooked remove it to a plate and set aside. 
  • Add the prawns to the salmon fat, turning them as they go pink to cook both sides. Once cooked, add to the plate of salmon, and set aside. 
  • Add the garlic, ginger, spring onion, red pepper and mushrooms to the pan. Sauté in the salmon fat until soft. 
  • Add the cabbage, and toss so all combine. Pour over the Tamari sauce. Let the cabbage soften, cooking it for about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
  • Tip the prawns and salmon back into the stir fry and gently fold together. 
  • Plate up and enjoy!
