Garlic and ginger sesame Salmon with roasted courgette ribbons and cherry tomatoes

You can tell when Beardy is away because I get to eat what I want and generally experiment more…

This serves 2 and even tho there is only one of us tonight I’ve managed to polish off the whole lot! Oops….


  • 2 x salmon fillets (skin on boneless)
  • 2 courgettes
  • Handful of cherry tomatoes
  • 8 spring onions (sliced lengthways)
  • Juice of one lime
  • Sesame seeds
  • About an inch of ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Mirin
  • Garlic oil or just oil with a crushed clove of garlic in
  • Method
    1. Mix the soy, mirin, lime juice, garlic and ginger in a blender or just mix manually if you’ve grated the garlic and ginger
      Put the salmon on some foil or baking paper on a baking tray
      Pour a tablespoon of the mixture over each of the salmon fillets and sprinkle with the sesame seeds
      With a peeler cut the courgette lengthways into ribbons and trim and cut the spring onions the same way and place both with the tomatoes into another baking tin, drizzle with the garlic oil and season
      Put both trays into the oven at 180 degrees or gas mark 5 for 20 mins – the salmon on the higher shelf
      Plate up! Pour the remaining sauce over the salmon and veg.
