Turn the salmon over and cook a fur­ther 2min­utes for medium-rare (depend­ing on thick­ness), or un­til cooked to your lik­ing. Set aside to rest. Re­duce the heat un­der the pan to medium, add the teriyaki sauce and cook, stir­ring con­stantly, for about 1 minute un­til the sauce has re­duced and thick­ened slightly. To serve, spoon rice on to plates and top with a piece of salmon. Spoon over the teriyaki sauce and serve the salad on the side. Squeeze the le­mon juice over the salmon and gar­nish with the sec­ond spring onion.
