This simply marinated salmon is perfect for summer dining or it can be cooked on a griddle if the weather isn’t ideal for a BBQ. Served with an easy roasted pepper salsa and our Caribbean Couscous it’s a real treat for your taste buds!


Mix the oil, a pinch of salt and pepper, lime juice, thyme, smoked paprika and sugar together in a shallow dish. Add the salmon fillets and coat in the marinade. Leave to marinate for 30 minutes.

Make the salsa. In a small bowl mix together the chopped pepper, lime juice and zest, garlic, ginger, olive oil and honey. Season with salt and pepper.

Preheat your BBQ or a griddle pan over a medium heat and when hot add the salmon flesh-side down. Cook for 1 minute until the salmon has charred lines. Carefully turn over and cook on the skin side until cooked through to your liking.

Meanwhile heat the Caribbean Couscous according to the packet instructions and fluff with a fork.

Once the salmon is cooked serve with the grains, salsa and a wedge of lime or lemon for squeezing.
