Japanese inspired grilled Salmon

Here is a recipe to boost your vitamin D levels whilst we wait for the sun to shine. Even my fish averse 8-year old son loves this (minus the chilli)!


4 salmon fillets with skin

For the marinade:
  • 4 dessertspoons each of light and dark soya sauce
  • Juice of 1 lemon or lime
  • 2 dessertspoons sweet chilli sauce
  • 1 dessertspoon clear honey
  • 4 teaspoons grated ginger
  • 4 teaspoons crushed garlic
  • 2 finely chopped green chillies (optional)
  • Half a teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 finely chopped spring onions
  • 4 dessertspoons finely chopped fresh coriander
  • 4 dessertspoons water

Mix all the marinade ingredients together in a bowl

Place the salmon fillets in an ovenproof dish skin side down.

Pour the marinade evenly over the fillets.

Turn the salmon fillets skin side up and leave to marinade for  4-8 hours.

Grill under a medium heat, starting skin side up for about 5 minutes. When skin is crispy and golden, turn the fillets over and grill for a further 5 minutes or until cooked to liking. Serve with rice or noodles and some of the remaining marinade from the dish.

In a rush? Cook straight away but baste the fillets with the marinade from the pan every 2-3 minutes whilst grilling.




About Sneha

I am a pharmacist and homeopath and have advised people for many years on issues to do with health, weight and well being. My role has involved navigating my way through the burdensome and sometimes conflicting volume of information and advice from health experts about with what constitutes a healthy diet, what foods to avoid if you want to lose weight and the importance of exercise in weight control and maintaining health. Despite all this information being available, obesity in the UK continues to rise. Knowledge is one thing, but putting it into practice is another! Having lost 3 stones since the birth of my second child, people have been asking me how I did it. That's what has inspired me to write this blog and share my experiences in the hope that it inspires others to find their own path to achieving their health and beauty goals!
