March 1, 2018

































Time for another little recipe, to give you some healthy meal time inspiration!


It's been a while since we've had this in our house, might have to put it back on the menu.


This recipe serves 4 people and you could reduce the sugar a bit if you are being really calorie conscious.




6 garlic cloves, unpeeled
1 small onion cut into thick slices
1 large red dried chilli, deseeded and trimmed
4 tbsp soft brown sugar
4 tbsp cider vinegar
4 x 150g skinless salmon fillets
1 lime zested, then cut into wedges
200g crème fraîche or soured cream
chopped coriander, to serve (optional)




Blacken the whole garlic and the onion slices on all sides in a large, dry non-stick frying pan.

Remove, cool briefly, then peel the garlic cloves.


Soak the chilli in boiling water for 15 mins, drain, then place in a blender with the sugar, cider vinegar, garlic, onion and some salt and pepper.

Whizz to a smooth sauce.


Heat the grill.

Brush each salmon fillet liberally with the sauce and save any remaining.

Grill for 8 mins.


Meanwhile, mix the lime zest with the crème fraîche.


Serve the fish with extra chilli sauce, a dollop of the crème fraîche and lime wedges for squeezing over.


Sprinkle with coriander, if you like, and serve with green beans or rice and a salad.
