Grilled salmon with crunchy cabbage recipe - Women's Health & Fitness

What you’ll need

  • Olive oil, for brushing

  • 200g salmon fillet, skin removed and pin-boned, cut into four long, thin piecesCrunchy cabbage salad

  • ½ Chinese cabbage

  • Handful radicchio leaves, shredded

  • 130g snowpeas, sliced lengthways

  • 30g snowpea sprouts

  • Large handful coriander leaves, plus extra to garnish (optional)

  • 2 tsp olive oil

  • 1½ tbsp lime juice

  • 1 tsp finely grated ginger


To make the salad, remove and discard the core from the cabbage and shred the leaves, slicing across the cabbage. Place in a large bowl with the radicchio, snowpeas, sprouts and coriander and toss to combine. Add the oil, lime juice and ginger and toss gently for 30 seconds to ensure that all the leaves are well coated. Place in the fridge while preparing the fish.

Preheat the oven grill to high. Line a grill tray with foil and brush lightly with oil. Cook the salmon for two minutes on each side or until just cooked through. Take care not to overcook or the fish will become dry. Carefully slice the salmon on the diagonal and serve on a bed of crunchy cabbage salad, garnished with extra coriander leaves, if you like.
