Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). In a medium saucepan, melt the butter with a dash of olive oil over a medium heat. Add 2/3 of the garlic and cook until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Add the basmati rice, water and the salt and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and cover with a lid. Cook for 10 minutes, then remove from the heat and keep covered until the rice is tender and the water is absorbed, 10 minutes. TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam so don't peek!
While the rice is cooking, finely grate the ginger. Thinly slice the carrot (unpeeled) into half-moons. Roughly chop the Asian greens. Trim the green beans. In a small bowl, combine the honey, soy sauce, sesame seeds and remaining garlic.
In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the carrot and green beans and cook until just tender, 5-6 minutes. TIP: Add a dash of water to the pan to help the veggies cook faster! Add the Asian greens and stir through until wilted, 1 minute. Add the ginger and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Transfer the veggies to a medium bowl and cover to keep warm.
Return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the salmon, skin-side down, to the pan and cook until almost cooked through, 2-4 minutes on each side (depending on thickness).
When the salmon is almost cooked through, reduce the heat to medium. Add a drizzle more olive oil to the pan, then add the honey-soy glaze. Simmer, stirring, until the garlic is golden, 1 minute. Spoon the glaze over the salmon, then remove from the heat.
Divide the garlic rice and ginger veggies between bowls. Top with the honey-soy glazed salmon and spoon over any glaze remaining in the pan. TIP: For the low-calorie option, serve with 1/2 the garlic rice.
