Finely grate the ginger. Finely grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). In a medium saucepan, heat the butter and a dash of olive oil over a medium heat. Add the garlic and ginger and cook until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Add the basmati rice, water (for the rice) and salt to the pan 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 has absorbed, 10 minutes. TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam so don't peek!


While the rice is cooking, roughly chop the Asian greens. Thinly slice the avocado.


TIP: Wasabi has a strong horseradish flavour so use less if you aren't a fan or add a little plain mayo from the pantry to mellow it. In a small bowl, combine the wasabi mayonnaise (if using) and water (for the mayo). TIP: Adding water to the wasabi mayo will make it easier to drizzle.


In a medium frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Pat the salmon dry with paper towel and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. TIP: Patting the skin dry helps it crisp up in the pan! When the oil is hot, add the salmon to the pan, skin-side down, and cook until just cooked through, 2-4 minutes on each side (depending on thickness). Transfer to a plate.


Wipe out the frying pan with paper towel and return to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the Asian greens and cook until wilted, 1-2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Stir 1/2 the black sesame seeds through the rice.


Divide the garlic-ginger rice between bowls. Top with the salmon, Asian greens, avocado and drizzle with the wasabi mayo (if using). Sprinkle with the remaining sesame seeds and drizzle with a little soy sauce if you like.
