Fish Dish

Salmon with a chilli, lime and butter sauce served with a side of leeks, shredded brussels and chorizo . These dishes work really well independently too – they don’t have to go together.

X 2 salmon steaks/filets

1 leek – sliced

250g Brussel sprouts – shredded

120g sliced/diced chorizo

2 garlic cloves – crushed

Glug of olive oil

Half a lemon

Salt & Pepper

100g asparagus

Chilli flakes

Pinch of cumin

Pinch of ginger

Pinch of smoked paprika

Zest of 1 lime (then cut lime in half)

Couple of nobs of butter

First of all prepare the salmon.

Line a baking tray with some foil in a cross formation and then lay the salmon in the middle. Season salmon with salt and paper. Add a pinch of ginger, cumin and smoked paprika to the fish and sprinkle on some chilli flakes – to your taste. Add a nob of butter to both fillets and top with the zest of one lime. Add the asparagus and the lime then roll up the foil to form a parcel.

Cook in a hot oven for 15/20 minutes.

Now to the vegetables.

Place olive oil in a pan and heat, then add chorizo; fry for a few minutes then add leeks. After approx 2/3 minutes add the garlic and fry for a few minutes before adding sprouts. Add one lemon, some salt and pepper and cover with a lid. Now leave to sauté gently for approx 15 minutes.

Remove salmon from the oven and allow to sit for 5 mins before serving with the vegetables.
