Spiced Grilled Salmon with Bean Salad

I love bargains!

We bought 2 pieces for salmon fillet for less than AU$19/kg . The usual price is $32/kg. It was fresh and pink. I haven’t had salmon for ages! What a bonus.

My mind began to twirl. Miso salmon? Butter garlic Salmon? Grilled? Baked? Steam? The possibilities were endless.

In the end, I decided to keep it simple.

Spiced Grilled Salmon with Bean Salad (serves 2)
2 pieces of salmon fillet
2-3 tsp of chili flakes
2 tsp of cumin
1 tablespoon of olive oil
2 tsp of minced garlic

Marinate salmon with spiced mix and olive oil. Season if needed. Heat grill pan to hot. Grill salmon both sides for approximately 3-5 minutes.

Bean Salad
1/2 cucumber chopped
1 can of butter beans
2 tsp of sesame oil
2 tsp of sesame seeds
1 tsp of lemon juice

Toss ingredients together. Serve with grilled salmon!

  1. hey daph…this must be delicious! did you guys eat just this combo for dinner? that’s just super healthy! i was just wondering…as my sous chef would roll on the floor kicking legs up in the air crying and complaining about hunger if i were to serve this for dinner…hmm except if i exponentially make the serving BIGGER, like HUGE-HUGE-HUGE-big


  2. For me, much simpler- just salt and black pepper and finally squeeze of lemon on my grilled salmon!Some say that brighter-colored salmon has been artificially processed – is that true ?


  3. ukp10/kg is abpout the normal price for us here but I seldom use salmon as it is relatively expensive compared to cod. I have tried your method of cooking, although with different marinades, but maybe will try salmon with a lighter marinade like yours as it has a more dinstinctive flavour than most other white fish.


  4. Singairishgirl- me too! ^5beachlover- it does go well together! Clean and simple I suppose. How did yours go??? Mochacholarata Rita- Dessert follows the main meal so that’s enough! hehe. I can’t remembered if that was AR’s or my portion but most likely it’s his. Go for it! EXPAND IT! lia- hi lia! Welcome!!!bigboys- yeah! Keep it simple ya =) tigerfish- I like the black pepper and lemon juice suggestion! I used to do that as well. Does the colour depend on where it is farm? Maybe deep sea fish is pinker than those farmed one? doggybloggy- i leave that to the sashimi experts! hehelittle corner- oh? u prefer white flesh fish? joe- I’m sure!little inbox- hehe. hv to be careful after all those kid on the blog- =)hazza- I suppose after exchange rate, UK salmon is still cheaper! darn! jessy- oh yeah!
