  • 2 tbsp tandoori paste
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 2 salmon fillets

pea mash

  • 300g frozen peas
  • 1 green chilli
  • 1 garlic clove, roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • a handful mint leaves
  • 2 spring onions, chopped


  • STEP 1

    Mix the tandoori paste, lemon juice and oil with some seasoning, brush this all over the salmon fillets. Put them in a small roasting tray and grill for 5-7 minutes, or until cooked through.

  • STEP 2

    Boil the kettle, pour it over the peas in a bowl and leave to defrost. Meanwhile put the green chilli, garlic, lemon juice, sugar and mint into a food processor or mini chopper. When the peas are defrosted (it will only take a couple of minutes), drain well, then add about a third to the processor. Whizz until smooth, then add the spring onions and remaining peas and pulse a couple of times so they’re mixed but still chunky. Divide between two plates and top each with a salmon fillet. Serve with plain basmati rice.
