Teriyaki Salmon

This is a nice quick dinner that my boys love. 

By scoring the fish the marinade goes deeper into the flesh and it reduces the cooking time, these fillets were 5+cm thick so if yours are thinner reduce the cooking time!

Serves 4.

Ingredients

2 x 300g salmon fillets, skin on

75mls gluten free soy sauce

2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger

1 tablespoon sesame oil

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 tablespoon sake

1 teaspoon sesame seeds

Method

In a non reactive dish, combine the soy sauce, ginger, sesame oil, sugar and sake.

Take each fillet and lightly score with a knife, but not through to the skin.

Place the salmon, flesh side down, into the marinade and marinade for 20 minutes.

While the fish marinades preheat the oven to 220 degrees Centigrade or get you BBQ heated. If using the oven, line a baking sheet with baking parchment.

Gently remove the salmon from the marinade, place skin side down on the baking parchment, drizzle over a little more marinade and then sprinkle over the sesame seeds. If using a BBQ, I just pop the salmon skin side down onto the flat plate, sprinkle over the seeds and close the BBQ, it’s normally done within 5 minutes.

Bake for 8-10 minutes. Allow to rest for five minutes before serving.

Paper Parcel Baked Salmon With Dill And Lemon

Simplicity at its best!

I love fresh dill and salmon and this is one of the quickest hands off ways to prepare a really healthy meal, throw a salad together while the salmon bakes and you are ready to eat in less than 20 minutes.

Serves 4.

Ingredients

4 salmon fillets

4 large sprigs of fresh dill

1 lemon, sliced very thinly

salt and pepper

Method

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Centigrade.

Take four large pieces of cooking foil and top them with similar sized pieces of baking parchment.

Lay a salmon fillet in the centre of each piece of paper, top with the dill frond and slices of lemon, season well.

Wrap the paper layer first, sealing the long sides first with folds, followed by the short sides, repeat with the foil and place the parcel on a baking sheet, repeat with the remaining fillets.

Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.

Remove from the oven and allow to sit for 5 minutes before opening.

Salmon Ceviche

I love the freshness of salmon prepared this way.

We have this as one of our tapas plates, something that just needs mixed at the last minute is very handy when you have lots of things happening on the stove!

You can prepare the onion ahead of time and have the salmon chopped along with the herbs, ready to be combined at the last minute.

Obviously, your salmon needs to be as fresh as possible, I buy the sashimi grade salmon from the fishmonger, he very kindly prepares a fresh fish whenever he knows it is for sashimi, sushi or ceviche, I’m very lucky!

Serves 2 as a starter.

Ingredients

1/2 small red onion, very finely sliced

250mls warm water

150g salmon fillet, skin and brown meat removed

juice of 1 lime

2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander

salt and pepper

Method

Pour the warm water into a bowl and add the onion, allow to soak for ten minutes.

Drain the onion and squeeze dry on some kitchen towel.

Cut the salmon into small pieces, around 5mm.

When ready to serve, stir the salmon, lime juice, coriander, salt and pepper together.

Line the serving dish with the onion and top with the salmon.
