Restaurant quality, on the table in 20 minutes, healthy and delicious.

My technique gives crispy skin, fall apart flesh and works every time. The easy Thai sauce is zesty with lemon and chilli and is complemented by the fresh herbs. Enjoy, knowing that you have made this yourself at a fraction of the cost of a restaurant.


Crispy Skin Salmon Thai Style
Quick, delicious, restaurant quality Thai inspired crispy skin salmon

Preparation Time 5 minutes
Cooking Time 15 minutes
Serves 4

Ingredients
For the salmon
4 portions of salmon fillets, skin on
Olive oil
Salt
1 large lemon, cut into 1 cm discs
1 cup coriander, roughly cut
1 cup mint, roughly cut
1 cup basil, roughly cut

For the salmon and salad sauce
6 Birdseye chilli (or more if you like it extra spicy)
2 large lemons, zested and juiced
4 cloves garlic, crushed (exclude for low FODMAP)
6 teaspoons raw sugar
4 teaspoons fish sauce (I use the authentic tasting Squid Brand)

For the salad
1/2 iceberg lettuce, roughly cut
2 tomatoes, diced
10cm continental cucumber, cut into matchsticks
1 capsicum, sliced
1 carrot, cut into matchsticks

To serve
Cooked jasmine, coconut or pineapple fried rice

Method
Preheat a fry pan on high.
Combine the sauce ingredients and whisk to combine. Set aside.
Drizzle olive oil on the skin of the salmon portions. Rub salt into the skin.
Place the salmon in the frying pan, skin side down.
Immediately spoon 2 tsp of sauce onto the salmon, add 2 tbsp of combined herbs and two slices of lemon (cut to size). Cover and cook on medium for 10 minutes with the lid on.


Crispy Skin Salmon Thai Style
Put the sauce on the middle of the salmon to stop it going on the pan



Crispy Skin Salmon Thai Style
Layer the salmon with the sauce, herbs and slices of lemon

Combine the salad ingredients, remaining sauce, herbs and toss to combine.
Use a spatula to gently lift the salmon off the fry pan to check that the skin is crisp to your liking, taking care not to break the skin. Fry for an addition minute on high, if required.
Use the spatula to lift the salmon, flip and plate with the salmon skin side up and lemon and herb plate side down. Add 1 - 2 tsp of sauce if desired, but eat straight away or the skin may go soggy!

Tips
Cook for 8 minutes for medium cooked salmon.
Adjust the spiciness for taste and comfort. Use fewer chillies and remove the seeds for a less spicy sauce.
Substitute lemons with limes.
The flavours in this main work well as a three course meal with the healthy spring rolls for entree followed by the Pineapple And Coconut Piņa Colada Sorbet for dessert.
