Coriander and cumin seeds are two of the spices commonly found in chermoula. I like the combination of these two spices when cooked with any seafood, but particularly salmon as it stands up to more robust flavours. This recipe uses a dry rubbing technique where no oil is added and the spices are simply rubbed into the fish with only a little extra salt and lemon.
|1 tsp||Coriander seeds, ground|
|1 tsp||Cumin seeds, ground|
|1||Lemon, freshly zested|
|4 pieces||Boneless salmon fillets, 150g per piece, with skin on|
- Mix together the coriander, cumin, salt and lemon zest on a dinner plate.
- Place the salmon on top of the spice mix and rub the mix evenly all over. Store in the fridge to marinate for 30 minutes.
- Get the barbecue hot plate up to a high heat, lightly grease with oil then place on the salmon, skin side down. Cook for 4 minutes then turn over and cook for a further 2 minutes. The salmon should be slightly undercooked in the centre.
