Recipe Summary

The flesh of fish is a valuable source of protein and we know the comsumption is beneficial to our health. But unfortunately our intake of oily fish is not meeting the recommended amount (National Diet and Nutrition Survey 2014). One of the barrier is likely to be the costs. However there is no reason why we cannot explore the use of frozen fish fillets.

The other key benefits from fish especially from the oily type, is their Omega 3 fatty acids content.

Method:

Mix together all the ingredients except the salmon to make the marinade. Pour over the salmon fillets and allow to marinade for at least 20 minutes.

Line a grill pan with foil and heat grill to medium-high. Wipe excess marinade of salmon and place on pan. Grill for about 8 minutes or until the centre of the salmon is just opaque.
