Lemon and Herb Salmon

with spicy 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.

Instructions

Get Prepped
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 Quinoa
2
  • Boil a large pot of water for the quinoa.
  • Stir in the stock and quinoa and bring back up to the boil.
  • Cook until the quinoa has doubled in size and the seed has visibly split, 12-15 mins. 
  • Drain in a sieve and return to the pot, off the heat.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover with a lid and set aside.
Char the Courgette
3
  • Meanwhile, place a large pan over high heat (without oil).
  • When hot, add the shallot and courgette. Cook until courgette is charred, 3-4 mins. Turn the courgette only every so often—this will allow it to pick up a nice colour.
  • Once cooked, season with salt and pepper.
  • Transfer 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.

Finishing Touches
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 quinoa, fluffing it up as you go.
Serve and Enjoy
6
  • Share the quinoa between bowls or deep plates.
  • Top with the shallot, 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.
