We’ve gone ahead and added extra veg and protein to make it a completely filling and satisfying meal. If you are a vegetarian or don’t eat fish, this recipe tastes just as awesome with tofu, chicken or beef.

Start by preparing your Oriental Ginger & Teriyaki Quinoa Risotto, whilst that’s cooking away on the stove you can start on the veg and protein. If you’re stuck for time you can microwave the veggies before hand then add them on to a saucepan for a few minutes to simmer in the sesame oil. Using the same pan to cook the fish gives that extra bit of flavour, not to mention reducing the dishes when it comes to clean up time!

Once all the ingredients are cooked, it’s time to assemble! Start by laying out the quinoa risotto to the one side of the bowl then you can add the cooked veggies to the other side. Place the sliced avocado on top, followed by the Nori sushi sheet and grilled fish. Serving this meal with the sesame seeds, spring onion and oyster sauce adds the final delicious touches ready for your enjoyment!
