Easy-peasy blackened salmon!

I’d like to big-up my complex cooking skills but the truth is when you take away the time needed to allow the salmon to marinade this meal takes about 10 minutes to prep. I can also promise it’s probably the best 10 minute meal prep you’ll ever do as the flavour is intense and rich and feels like a real treat meal. 

Marinade ingredients 

  • Match box size piece of fresh ginger (roughly chopped)
  • 1 tbsp of onion salt
  • 2 crushed garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp of rice syrup, honey or agave
  • 100ml of GF soy sauce.

Cooking method

  1. Put all the ingredients into a microwaveable dish and microwave for two minutes.
  2. Add the salmon fillets (chicken or tofu), and coat thoroughly.
  3. Leave to marinate for a minimum of two hours – four to five is ideal for an intense flavour.
  4. Take the salmon out of the marinade and in a 180c pre-heated oven place the salmon fillets on a baking tray and cook for 15-20 minutes depending on how well done you like it. Half way through the cooking time brush more marinade on and continue cooking.
  5. While the salmon is cooking place the remaining marinade into a saucepan and simmer until it has reduced and thickened. 
  6. Serve with stir fry vegetables, noodles, rice or quinoa – my favourite is “courgetti” – courgette spaghetti created using a spiralizer. 

Preparation time: 

Marinade prep – 5-10 minutes

Marinating the salmon – 2-5 hours.

Cooking time: 15 – 20 minutes
