“Salmon is rich in omega 3 that acts an anti-inflammatory in the body that may help to reduce pain and stiffness associated with Rheumatoid arthritis. Dark green vegetables are a good source of vitamin C that is required to make collagen that is used in the body to maintain healthy connective tissues including joint ligaments”, says Rob.

Ingredients

  • 2 salmon fillets (110-130g each), skinless and boneless
  • 1 fresh red chilli, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp tamari sauce
  • Thumb-sized piece of ginger, grated with the skin on
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 300g kale

Method

  1. Preheat your grill to medium.
  2. Place the salmon skin-side down on a baking tray. Mix the rest of the ingredients in a bowl and pour equally over the fillets.
  3. Grill for 12 minutes (no need to turn over). Once cooked, remove the skin and discard.
  4. Heat a large non-stick pan and add a little olive oil. Throw the kale into the pan and stir-fry for 2 minutes then add a splash of water. Stir around the pan little more then add another splash of water. Stir for another minute then season with salt and pepper.
  5. Serve the salmon fillets with greens.
