"Ping!" Salmon with Ginger, Spring Onions and Coriander

When I was on MC, my name was associated with a particular kitchen equipment which makes the same noise. Although my mum won’t have one, I find it super useful for times I needed a quick meal. I love steamed fish and I find the microwave does the job much quicker than a steamer! Ping!

Prep 10 minutes
Total 15 minutes
  1. Put the fillets in a microwavable dish, sprinkle with ginger and cover with clingfilm.
  2. Mix soy sauce, sugar and shao shing wine in a small bowl.
  3. Put fish in the microwave for 1 minute on high heat
  4. Remove and pour the soy sauce mixture over the fish.
  5. Top with half of the spring onions and coriander, recover with cling film and cook for another 1.5 minutes or until your salmon is just cooked...Don't nuke it!
  6. Remove the cling film and top with the rest of the spring onions and coriander.
  7. In a pan, heat the oil until it is smoking, pour onto the fish (it will sizzle).


Serve hot with rice.

I’m a home cook who was propelled into a ‘dream come true’ world of cooking after winning the coveted MasterChef trophy back in 2014.


My aim is to spread some love for Malaysian food in the UK, my home now for 20 years. MasterChef has allowed me to showcase some of the Malaysian flavours to a mass audience and now it is up to me and a few other chefs to champion this wonderful cuisine in the UK. I travel all over to promote Malaysian food and my debut cookbook, MALAYSIA, available to buy on Amazon or from your local bookshop.
