Dukkah Spiced Salmon

More of the taste of faraway lands with this Salmon recipe from our member Dianne. Salmon is an oily fish which is packed with good fats, omega-3, which helps with brain development and cognition, helps to reduce cholesterol and also makes things pretty darn tasty!

The salmon is coated in a Dukkah spice mix, which is an Egyptian blend, of cumin, sesame, and coriander.  It also contains nuts which gives it a crunchy texture, perfect for coating fish like salmon.

Description

Egyptian spiced salmon


Ingredients

Scale

1 small aubergine

12 courgettes (I used baby ones as I prefer them)

Handful of cherry tomatoes

100g fat free Greek yogurt (natural)

2 salmon fillets (120g each)

Sprinkle of Dukkah spice mix (don’t go overboard, as it contains nuts, it will add extra calories)

100g dried Giant cous cous – with some herbs and spices (we used Morrocan blend)

Large sprig of mint – finely chop the leaves only

Olive oil or Frylight


Instructions

  1. Chop the aubergine and courgette into small pieces, halve the tomatoes, drizzle with a little olive oil (if calories allow) or Frylight, pan fry over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Remove from pan into a bowl and lightly toss in the herbs and spices. Set aside for later.
  2. Cook the giant cous cous as per packet instructions (use suggested serving measure and method)
  3. Once cooked add the cooked vegetables and gently stir through.
  4. Sprinkle some Dukkah spice mix onto a board and gently press each side of the salmon into the spice until coated.
  5. Heat a little oil (or Frylight) in a non-stick pan use a medium heat and cook the salmon skin side down for 3-4 minutes. Quickly seal each side of the salmon and then cook the tops for a further 3-4 minutes or until it is cooked to your liking.
  6. To make the yogurt dressing stir the yogurt and mint leaves together.
  7. To serve, place a portion of cous cous on to a plate, top with the salmon and drizzle some yogurt dressing over the top.
