This recipe uses honey, ginger and soy sauce to create a really tangy marinade that you’ll absolutely love. Served up with brown basmati rice, spring onions and tenderstem broccoli, this dinner option is full of different textures and provides a healthy mix of ingredients that are perfect for a mid-week treat that you’ll want to try again and again.
