1 x Portion of My Herby Chermoula
Scottish Salmon Fillets
Fresh Red Chilli
Sweet Chilli Sauce
Thinly Sliced Red Pepper
Rock Salt and Ground Black Pepper
Make 1 x portion of my Herby Chermoula, pop in the fridge to chill (it will keep for 2-3 days). Cook your egg noodles, drain and chuck into a wok with a little sunflower oil, sweet chilli sauce, a little sliced red chilli, thinly sliced red pepper and grated carrot. Toss these around for a few mins, then season with salt and pepper. Let them cool and then pop in the fridge to chill whilst we cook the Salmon.
Take the salmon out of the fridge and dry each side well with a paper towel. Rub with olive oil, rock salt and black pepper and lightly score the skin. Heat up a pan on a high heat, drizzle with olive oil, and place your salmon in skin side down, holding it down and moving it around for a minute in the pan so it doesn't buckle.
Cook your salmon for 3-4 mins per side, making sure your skin is nice and crispy, finish in the oven for 2 mins on 180C and allow to rest for a few minutes, giving it another little seasoning.
Pop the Herby Chermoula, into little glass ramekins, place the salmon on the plate, skin side down, pop some sweet chilli noodles on the side and finish with ripped/torn coriander and freshly sliced red chilli. Can you hear summer calling!
