This is a really nice way to grill salmon. The marinade is sweet and garlicky, and as you only grill the salmon for about 5 minutes, it is nicely charred on the exterior and so succulent. I prefer my salmon to be pink on the inside, but if you prefer yours to be completely cooked through, a couple more minutes over the coals will do the job.

You only need to marinate seafood for about 20 minutes. It soaks it all up. Don’t marinate for longer than about 30 minutes or the lime juice will begin to ‘cook’ the fish and it will become tough.

Be sure to get thick-cut salmon fillets. If you can source wild salmon from your fishmonger, do it. You’ll be glad you did.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 tablespoon finely grated lime zest
2 limes, juiced
3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh coriander
2 tablespoons Garlic and ginger paste
1 tablespoon finely chopped or pounded green chilli
1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
5 tablespoons light soy sauce
4 tablespoons soft dark brown sugar
4 tablespoons water
4 tablespoons rapeseed oil
800g thick-cut salmon fillet, skinned and cut into bite-sized cubes

Method

  1. When ready to cook, fire up your barbecue for direct heat cooking.
  2. Place all the ingredients, except the salmon, in a large bowl and whisk together. Add the salmon cubes to the marinade and let them soak up the juices for 20 minutes.
  3. Thread the salmon pieces onto flat skewers and cook over the coals for about 5 minutes (longer if you want the salmon cooked right through), turning regularly so that it takes on that amazing and tasty char, with a slight blackening on the outside.
  4. Serve hot, simply with a green salad and nothing else. There is plenty of salt in the soy sauce, so I rarely add more.
