the Ingredients

Salmon Fillett With Crispy Skin
  • 4 salmon fillets (with skin), each 200 to 250 grams and about 50mm thick
  • Olive oil
  • Sea salt

For the salad 

  • 2 continental cucumbers
  • ½ cup chopped coriander
  • 6 large shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium red chilli, seeded and finely diced

Dressing

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil

Instructions

  • 01 Peel the cucumbers. Use a vegetable peeler to slice strips of cucumber from one end to the other. Discard the centre seeds. Place the cucumber in a colander and allow to drain for around 30 minutes.
  • 02 Toss the cucumber with the chopped coriander, shallots, and chilli, and set aside until ready to serve.
  • 03 Prepare the barbecue for direct cooking over medium- high heat (210° to 240°C) with a hotplate or Weber Ware Frying Pan.
  • 04 Lightly brush the salmon fillets all over with olive oil. Season with salt. Place the salmon on the pre-heated hotplate or frying pan and cook over direct medium-high heat, skin side down, for 4 minutes. Turn the fillets and cook for another 2 or 3 minutes. Remove from the barbecue.
  • 05 In a bowl dissolve the brown sugar in the lime juice and fish sauce, and then whisk in the vinegar. Season with pepper and whisk in the peanut oil. Mix well and then pour over the salad. Serve with the salmon.
