Zesty Salmon

Posted by Cathy Dickerson

Salmon is best not messed with too much as has strong flavour of its own.  But this makes a change from plain salmon and is very quick and easy.

- 2 salmon fillets ( about 150-175g each)
- 2 teaspoons of olive oil or coconut oil
- 4-5 spring onions
- 1/2 birdseye chilli (or to taste)
- zest and juice of half a lime
- small handful of fresh coriander, chopped


  • Chop the chilli and slice onions thinly at an angle
  • Heat oil over a medium high heat in a non-stick pan
  • Cook the salmon fillets, skin side down for about 5 minutes 
  • Turn fillets over, cook for another couple of minutes at a lower heat
  • Remove salmon from pan and keep warm to one side
  • Add onions, chilli and lime zest to the oil and saute for 2-3 minutes
  • Add the lime juice and stir in
  • Pour over the salmon fillets, sprinkle with chopped coriander
  • Serve with rice and/or green vegetables
