Lemon and Herb Salmon

with harissa drizzle 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.

Utensils

Zester
Pot with Lid

Instructions

1
  • Halve and peel the shallot. Chop 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. Dice the tomato into 2cm chunks.
  • In a large bowl, mix the lemon zest, salt, pepper and 1 tbsp oil (double for 4p).
  • Add the salmon to the bowl. Turn to coat and set aside. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw fish.
Cook the Bulgur
2
  • Place a pot over medium heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, add the shallot and cook, stirring, until softened, 3-4 mins.
  • Add 240ml water (double for 4p), stir in the stock and bring to the boil.
  • Stir in the bulgur, bring back 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
3
  • Meanwhile, place a large pan over medium-high heat (without 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 the charred courgette to a bowl and
    cover to keep warm.
Fry the Fish
4
  • 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.

5
  • Meanwhile, to make your dressing add the yoghurt, harissa spice, 1 ½ tbsp oil (double for 4p), a squeeze of lemon juice and half the parsley to a small bowl.
  • Season with salt and pepper. Mix well and set aside.
  • Stir the tomatoes, remaining parsley and a small squeeze of lemon juice through the bulgur, fluffing it up as you go.
6
  • Share the bulgur between bowls or deep plates.
  • Top with the charred courgette rounds and crispy salmon.
  • Taste and season with salt, pepper and more lemon juice if needed.
  • Drizzle over the harissa yoghurt dressing to finish.
