  • Easy

The best salmon recipe for one. Served with a bulgar wheat and fresh herbs then drizzled with a lime-yoghurt dressing for a quick and healthy idea for midweek.



  • lime 1, zested and juiced
  • fat-free Greek yoghurt 2 tbsp
  • coriander ½ small bunch, roughly chopped
  • bulgar wheat 40g
  • Cajun seasoning 1 tbsp
  • salmon fillet 1
  • olive oil
  • dill chopped to make 1 tbsp
  • mint chopped to make 1 tbsp
  • red onion ½, finely diced


  • Step 1

    Mix half the lime juice, the lime zest, yoghurt and half the coriander with a litle water and season. Pour boiling water over the bulgar wheat, cover with cling film and leave for 10 mins until the water has been absorbed. Rub the cajun seasoning into the salmon. Heat 1 tsp of oil in a frying pan and cook the salmon skin-side down for 4 minutes until the skin is crisp, then cook flesh-side down for 3 minutes until cooked through. Mix the herbs, red onion and remaining lime juice with the bulgar wheat and serve alongside the salmon and dressing.
