Recipe by beanbaguk
READY IN: 45mins




  • Start by using a pestle and mortar to crush up the garlic and ginger. Pound it in a while to release the flavor. Now add the chili and coriander and finally the lime to create a marinade.
  • Now, heat a good quality pan so it's hot.
  • While this happens, spread the marinade from the mortar onto the skinless side of the salmon fillet. Now add a little salt.
  • Next, add a good sized knob of butter into the hot dish and place the salmon into the pan, skin size down on a medium to high heat.
  • Allow the salmon to cook for about 6-8 minutes allowing the skin to become crispy and also cook the salmon a little too.
  • Now turn it about, so the salmon is on the marinade bed and allow it to cook on a medium heat. Allow to cook for about 15 minutes.
  • The bed will burn on the pan side, but the salmon will remain unburnt, so don't worry!
  • After about 15 minutes, the salmon should be cooked through depending on the thickness of the fillet.
  • Remove carefully and serve on a plate with the skin size down.
  • Serve with a combination of items, including stir-fry noodles, or traditional vegetables including new potatoes, green vegetables or maybe something a little more experimental!
