I LOVE this quick and simple recipe. It's the perfect thing to make when you fancy a takeaway but know you should try and make something a bit healthier.
Plus it's honestly ready in less time than it would take for your delivery to arrive so there's really no excuse.
As much as I love cooking I definitely have the odd day when I nearly give in to the takeaway temptation. Some days, after a long day at work, I really just want dinner on the table. Like immediately.
That's why I've teamed up with Lee Kum Kee to tell you all about their brand new range of stir fry sauces.
The stir-fry has long been a quick mid-week favourite and these little packets of joy can be paired perfectly with a variety of ingredients including: chicken, tofu, prawns and vegetables – giving you a tasty meal in minutes.
The stir-fry sauces include classic and regional Chinese flavour options like Black Bean Garlic and Kung Pao Chicken as well as flavoursome favourites Tomato & Garlic and Honey & Soy, providing an authentic taste of the East.
The sauces provide inspiration in a packet - giving you a quicker, healthier and more wallet-friendly option than ordering a takeaway.
Not only is Lee Kum Kee the most used sauce brand in Hong Kong households but it also has over 130 years’ experience in sauce making.
All Lee Kum Kee products are made to the highest quality, using only the best ingredients and with careful attention to detail at every stage of production.
The stir-fry sauces are available from September in Tesco, Asda and Ocado RRP 85p.
For this oven cooked salmon recipe I decided to try out the tomato & garlic sauce. I was so excited to throw together this dinner on a weeknight and be sitting down to eat in less than half an hour. Plus the whole meal is healthy and tastes incredible!

HOW TO MAKE OVEN COOKED SALMON WITH TOMATO AND GARLIC SAUCE
I started off by spreading the tops of the salmon fillets with half of the Lee Kum Kee tomato and garlic sauce and popping them on a lined baking sheet. They go in the oven for 20 minutes until perfectly flaky.
In the meantime cook your noodles according to packet instructions then drain and stir through the rest of the sauce.
HOW TO MAKE SESAME CUCUMBER SALAD
Give the cucumber a few whacks with a rolling pin then chop it and sprinkle with the salt. Sit for 10 minutes then pour out any liquid that's been drawn out of the cucumbers. Whisk together the rice vinegar, sesame oil, garlic, sugar and soy sauce together and pour over the cucumber.
