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

pea mash

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