Lemon and Herb Salmon

with jewelled bulgur and charred courgette

Salmon has a delicate fish that requires careful pairing. The combination of parsley and lemon offers a flavour that's both earthy and bright but won't overpower the dish.

Pot with Lid


Get Prepped
  • Halve and peel the onion. Chop half (double for 4p) into small pieces.
  • Zest half the lemon (double for 4p). Cut in half. Roughly chop the parsley (stalks and all).
  • Trim the courgette and slice into 1cm rounds. Quarter the tomatoes.
  • In a large bowl, mix the lemon zest, salt, pepper and 1 tbsp oil (double for 4p).
  • Add the salmon. Turn to coat and set aside. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw fish.
Cook the Bulgur
  • Place a pot over medium heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, add the chopped onion and cook, stirring, until softened, 3-4 mins.
  • Add 240ml water (double for 4p), stir in the stock powder and bring to the boil.
  • Stir in the bulgur, bring back up to the boil and simmer for 1 min.
  • Cover the pot and remove from the heat. Leave aside for 12-15 mins or until ready to serve.
Char the Courgette
  • Meanwhile, place a large pan over medium-high heat (no oil).
  • When hot, add the courgette and cook until charred, 3-4 mins. Turn only every so often—this will allow the courgette to pick up a nice colour.
  • Once cooked, season with salt and pepper.
  • Transfer half the charred courgette to a bowl and cover to keep warm.
  • Chop the remaining courgette into small pieces and set aside.
Fry the Fish
  • Return the (now empty) pan to high heat.
  • Once hot, carefully place your salmon into the pan, skin-side down.
  • Spoon over any oil remaining in the bowl.
  • Cook skin-side down for 4-5 mins then turn over and cook for 3-4 mins on the other side. IMPORTANT: Fish is cooked when opaque in the middle.

TIP: To make the fish more crispy, don't move it around when it's cooking skin-side down.

Finishing Touches
  • Meanwhile, to a small bowl add 1½ tbsp oil (double for 4p), a squeeze of lemon juice and half the parsley.
  • Season with salt and pepper. Mix well and set aside.
  • Fluff up the bulgur with a fork.
  • Stir through the tomatoes, chopped courgette, remaining parsley and a small squeeze of lemon juice.
Serve and Enjoy
  • Share the jewelled bulgur between bowls or deep plates, then top with the charred courgette rounds and crispy salmon.
  • Taste and season with salt, pepper and more lemon juice if needed.
  • Drizzle over the herby dressing to finish.
