Just wonder whether you have Wagamama in your area. Wagamama restaurants are Japanese inspired, serving various ramens, rice, starters and desserts. They are found in all the major cities in UK. We have been to the Wagamama restaurant here in Aberdeen a few times. It is located on the first floor of Union Square. We love the food there.

Eating out for a family of four here in UK can be quite costly in any restaurant. But I have good news here for you. You can actually cook some lovely Wagamama dishes at home with Wagamama sauces and dressing. It is very quick, easy and cheap.

I’m very thankful to receive 2 bottles of Wagamama dressing recently to review. They are Spicy Chilly, Coriander and Ginger Dressing and the other one is Light Soy House Dressing. I love spicy food and the smell of coriander and ginger so I would have to go for that one first.

Guess what I cooked? I cooked salmon and prawns with it. It was really good….mmmm. So super quick to get a delicious dish on the table. Perfect for a very busy day chocked full of appointments. To all busy moms out there, I’m sure you will not be disappointed with this dish.

Salmon is always one of my top favourite fish. Scotland is famous for salmon. It’s so fresh and delicious, good for health too and not that expensive compared to some other fish like monk fish.

Here’s my easy recipe for my Salmon And Prawns In Wagamama Dressing.

300g raw king prawns
300g salmon (cut into chunks)
100g green beans (cut in half)
1/2C water
7T Wagamama spicy chilli, coriander and ginger dressing
1T fried shallot oil
5T coconut milk
1 bunch of fresh coriander (chopped)

Blanch the green beans

Put the green beans in a pot. Add 1/2C water. Bring to boil and let it boil for a couple of minutes.

Looks and taste delicious.

Then add in all the rest of the ingredients. Let it boil for a couple of minutes and it’s done. Fish and prawns cook very fast. Do not overcook otherwise they become tough. Serve with rice.

I find that it’s not really spicy. You can add chopped chillies if you want it more spicy. In this cold, freezing weather, spicy food helps to warm up the body.

You can omit the fried shallot oil if you don’t have time. I like the extra taste though. I use fried shallot and fried garlic oil a lot in my cooking. I always prepare a bowl to last me a few days. It comes very handy when you want a quick meal.

Green beans and okra go very well with curries or dishes like this, even butternut squash. You can add more if you like. When you cook like this, you don’t even need to cook a separate vegetable dish. How wonderful is that!

Coconut milk adds extra fragrance to the dish. If you have left over coconut milk, you can make desserts with it or you can just add into the rice when you cook it. Add a little salt to the rice too. You will find the rice to be most aromatic and tasty.

Hope you have a great week. Til then, see you in my next post.

Wahhhhh!!!! Looks so good! Ya…when overseas, best to cook one’s own. Cheaper that way…and may be even nicer too.

Smelling good, dear! I’ve never mix the 2 together before. Genius!

Jeannie  on March 25th, 2013

That looks good! I like less spicy food as I don’t want to keep drinking water to bring down the heat!

We have Wagamama but I’ve never been there before because I heard the one where I live is terrible! haha….. Your salmon and prawns however, look delicious! Spicy chilli, coriander and ginger dressing sounds like a really unique flavour too ;)

To be honest, I didn’t even know that Wagamama sells bottles of goodies, Mary. I do have a copy of their cookbook given to me by my sister last year. I just can’t find the time to cook any of their recipes. Thank you, Mary! :)

I hear about this “Wagamama” restaurant from readers time to time. I wish to visit one day after I hear it so many times. Salmon and prawns are always our family’s favorite - looks delicious!

Salmon and prawns? Yes please!!! Love any dish with coconut milk and I love coconut rice. Smells so good and taste even better. This dish sounds lovely, Mary. The ingredients go extremely well together. It’s bedtime here but you’re making me so hungry. Thanks for another lovely recipe.
