Ocean Trout with Spicy Onion Sauce

Ocean Trout with Spicy Onion Sauce Cooking fish almost entirely on the skin protects the delicate flesh, keeping it moist and succulent. The skin usually ends up a bit charred and looking slightly the worse for wear, so I usually present the fish flesh side up. The skin still tastes great and, if you like […]

Salmon with Fregola Salad

Salmon with Fregola Salad This baked salmon with fregola salad is a great dinner party dish as it’s both easy and impressive. The fregola salad was taught to me by chef Giovanni Pilu, from Pilu at Freshwater, who usually serves it with lamb (see video below). Fregola is a reminder of the Arabic influence in […]

Salmon Wellington

Salmon Wellington Traditional beef Wellington is a series of parcels – beef wrapped in mushroom, wrapped in crêpe, wrapped in pastry – and the method can easily be adapted to other proteins, especially salmon which looks very pretty with its orange flesh contrasting against the golden pastry. When making salmon Wellington there’s no need to […]

Southern Fried Salmon

Southern Fried Salmon While fried chicken is the Southern classic, a similar process works just as well with fish in this delicious Southern fried salmon recipe. You can use any firm-fleshed fish; I love salmon as its oiliness echoes the richness of the chicken skin in the traditional recipe. The Southern spice blend is inspired […]

Baked Salmon with Fennel & Orange

Baked Salmon with Fennel & Orange Fennel, oranges and oregano are delicious flavourings for almost any seafood and I especially like them with a thick piece of crisp-skinned salmon. If you don’t like eating salmon skin, still cook the fish with the skin on as the oils add flavour to the flesh and help keep […]

Teriyaki Salmon Skewers

Teriyaki Salmon Skewers I love grilled salmon, especially when it’s basted with the salty-sweet-umami-rich sauce used on these teriyaki salmon skewers. The sauce can be made and skewers threaded ahead of time, so this is a great quick and easy dish for entertaining too. Serve it as a starter, or add steamed rice and a […]

Salmon Bisteeya

It lends itself beautifully to seafood too, especially gorgeous pink salmon – and a seafood version is even quicker and easier to make as there’s no need to poach the fish before assembling the pie. Traditionally the egg is scrambled […]

Turkish Salmon Kebaps

Turkish Salmon Kebaps I love almost any sort of kebabs (or kebaps as the Turks call them) and especially when the meat or seafood has been soaked in the tangy yoghurt marinade so typical of Turkey. This marinade is most often used for chicken but works a treat with salmon too. These Turkish salmon kebaps […]
