Thai-style Salmon Salad

I love this combination of seared flakes of salmon, green herbs and the spicy, zingy salad dressing. Crunch, flavour, freshness – it really is a fantastic (and healthy!) Thai salad to rustle up in just 15 minutes. Perfect for weeknights!

Ingredients

2 x 200g (7.05 oz) skinless salmon filllets

1 tbsp vegetable oil

½ small onion, sliced

1 cucumber, sliced

¼ cup finely chopped coriander (cilantro)

¼ cup finely sliced spring onion (scallions)

½ cup mint leaves

chilli flakes to taste (optional)

sea salt

 

Dressing:

1 long red chilli, sliced

1 small garlic clove

3 tbsp fish sauce

3 tbsp lime juice

2 tbsp shaved palm sugar

Steps
  • Step 1

    For the dressing, place the chilli, garlic and a pinch of salt in mortar. Use a pestle to pound to a rough paste. In a small bowl combine the chilli garlic paste, fish sauce, lime juice and palm sugar.

  • Step 2

    Season the salmon fillets with salt. Heat a frying pan over high heat. When the pan is hot, add the oil to the pan. Then add the salmon fillets and place a saucepan lid on top of the salmon so that the fillets are gently pressed to the bottom of the pan and to prevent oil splatter. Cook for 2-3 minutes each side or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate to rest until cool enough to handle with your fingers.

  • Step 3

    Place the onion and cucumber in a large bowl. Flake the salmon into large chunks and add to the bowl. Add the coriander, spring onion and mint. Add the dressing. Toss gently to combine. Add chilli flakes to taste (optional).

Perfect light meal

Another winner! So good, light and tons of flavour from that delicious dressing. Hubby had a side of rice. I also had some of your kimchi on the side for more variety. This will be our summer staple. Will try with different proteins.
