‘Oily fish such as salmon are a rich source of omega 3 fats, which are vital for optimal brain function. Miso is a fermented food which is beneficial for the gut bacteria and linked to improved cognition and overall mental wellness’ – (Dr. Sarah Schenker, Dietitian).

Servings – 4 people



    • 2 salmon fillets
    • 2 tsp soy sauce
    • 1.5 litres water
    • 6 tbsp brown miso paste
    • A thumb-sized piece of fresh root ginger, peeled and finely grated
    • 4 spring onions, finely sliced
    • 10 mushrooms, quartered
    • 2 carrots, peeled, finely sliced
    • 2 heads bok choy, quartered
    • 4 tsp sesame seeds



    • Brush the salmon fillet with soy sauce. Bring a litre of water to a gentle simmer and then place the salmon fillets in to poach for 10 minutes.
    • Remove the salmon (retain the cooking water), leave to cool, remove any skin and bones from the fish, and flake into large pieces.
    • Sieve the poaching water into a large saucepan, discarding any bits. Add the miso paste and ginger and stir well. Add the remaining water and bring back to the boil.
    • Add the spring onions, mushrooms, carrots and bok choy and simmer gently for 5 minutes until tender.
    • Remove from the heat and place in a large bowl. Add the salmon flakes and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
    • Serve with pickled cucumbers.
