March – Salmon With Dill And Horseradish

This recipe for tandoori-style salmon gets an unusual twist from the addition of horseradish in the marinade, a very British combination.

Serves 4


  • 4 salmon fillets, about 150g each, cut into 75g chunks

For the first marinade

  • 1 tablespoon ginger & garlic paste
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Juice from  ½  a lemon

For the second marinade

  • 2.5cm piece of fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 green chillies, finely chopped
  • 50g Greek yoghurt
  • 2 tablespoons grated horseradish
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons chopped dill
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh coriander leaves and stalks
  • 1 teaspoon finely ground white pepper
  •  ½ teaspoon sugar


Wash and pat dry the salmon fillets. Mix together all the ingredients for the first marinade, and then rub them all over the salmon fillets and leave to marinate for 15 minutes.

For the second marinade, mix together all the ingredients, then rub them over the salmon and leave to marinate for an additional 15 minutes.

Use long metal skewers to skewer the fish chunks and place, skin side down, on a baking tray.  Roast the salmon in an oven preheated to 200C/Gas Mark 6 for 7 minutes, then place under a hot grill for 2 minutes.

Alternatively, place the fish skin side down on a hot barbecue and cook for 10-12 minutes, turning them over every 3-4 minutes, until the skins are crisp and well coloured.

Serve with lemon wedges and chutneys of your choice.
