(Serves 4)

This is one of my family favourite meals and I often cook it also when entertaining. It is a very aromatic dish and tastes great hot or cold. You can serve it with cauliflower rice or broccoli rice for a lighter meal or with quinoa or basmati rice for more substantial meal or a very hungry crowd.


  • 4 salmon fillets


  • 1 thumb sized chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp. fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp. sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • 1 tbsp. tamari
  • 1 or 2 tbsp. lime or lemon juice

Garnish with:

  • ½ cucumber, diced
  • Red onion, diced
  • 4 tbsp. sweet chilli sauce, mixed with a squeeze of lime juice
  • red chilli, diced (optional)
  • Handful of coriander, roughly chopped


Put salmon in a bowl and pour over the marinade made from the above mentioned ingredients. Season with pepper and marinate in a fridge overnight or at least 20 min.

Bake the salmon for 15-20 min according to your preference (pink or well cooked). Serve with the cucumber and onion sprinkled over and the sweet chilli & lime sauce.
