RECIPE - SALMON with chilli glaze and lime creme fraiche


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.

Ingredients

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)

Method

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.
