Method
 
  • Ingredients (for 2 people)
  • For the salmon
  • 2 salmon fillets, skin on and scored
  • A dash of teriyaki sauce
  • A dash of soy sauce
  • A few different curry blends, or some ground cumin, ground coriander, garam masala
  • Few drops of sesame oil
  • Some fish sauce
  • Some tabasco sauce
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 tsp honey
  • For the curry paste
  • Olive oil
  • 1-2 chillies, finely sliced
  • 3 cm of fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tbs of curry leaves
  • 1 tsp of curry powder
  • Some salt, pepper, sugar
  • 1 tbs of mustard seeds
  • 1 tbs of sesame seeds
  • 1 tin of creamed coconut milk
  • For the vegetable base
  • All different kinds of finely sliced vegetables, enough to fill the bottom of an oven dish, e.g.:
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 celery sticks
  • A quarter red cabbage/savoy cabbage
  • A handful of mangetout
  • 2 leeks
  • 1 unwaxed lemon or lime
  • Some salt and pepper
  • For the raita:
  • 500 ml plain yoghurt
  • 1 bunch of coriander, chopped with stalks and all
  • 1 cucumber, grated
  • Some mint leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of pepper
  • 1/2 tsp of icing sugar
  • Some raita seasoning (mustard seeds, dried herbs)
  • For the potatoes:
  • 6-8 waxy potatoes
  • 1 tbs of turmeric
  • Salt, pepper
How to marinate the salmon:
Marinate the salmon a few hours before cooking. Score the skin a couple of times, put the fillets into a sealable bag, add all the marinating sauces and spices except for the honey (be quite generous) and put the bag in the fridge.

How to make the raita:
Mix all the ingredients together. You can do this a few hours before dinner, so everything blends. Take out of the fridge half an hour before serving and adjust the seasoning.

How to make the curry paste:
Add olive oil to a frying pan. Add all the ingredients except the coconut milk and fry lightly for 3-4 minutes. Add the coconut milk and reduce by about half, stiring occasionally.

How to make the potatoes:
Peel the potatoes, half them lengthways and boil for 10-15 mins until almost cooked, drain and cut them into chunks. Heat up some oil in a frying pan and add the potatoes. Leave them for a few minutes to catch, add the spices, then fry until brown and crispy. They will turn a nice yellow from the turmeric.

How to roast the vegetables and salmon:
Heat up the fan oven to 180 degrees.

Place the vegetables in the oven dish. It's important to slice them as thinly as possible to allow them to cook as there is only a little amount of liquid in the dish. Season with salt and pepper. Sit the salmon fillets on top, skin side up. Drizzle the honey over the salmon and vegetables. Cut the lemon/lime into 6 chunks, squeeze the juice over everything and distribute the chunks over the vegetables. Drizzle the curry paste over the vegetables, it's ok if some ends up on the salmon. If the paste seems quite dry, add some extra white wine, or sake, to the pan. Now cover the dish with foil and put in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove the foil, check that there is some liquid with the vegetables (add some more if necessary), add some salt to the salmon skins and put back in the oven for another 15 mins until the salmon is cooked to your liking.
To serve:
Lift out the salmon with some of the vegetables and put on a plate. Add some of the potatoes and raita. Voila!
