Salmon Goes To Thailand

Salmon goes to Thailand

Serves 2

Salmon is great cooked plainly, but it doesn't object to a little fuss...


  • 2 salmon steaks
  • 2 tbsp peanut oil
  • 2 sticks lemon grass
  • 2 very small red chillies
  • 1 inch of root ginger, peeled and finely chopped
  • 30g/1oz creamed coconut
  • 1 lime
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 200C/400F/Gas 7.
  2. Wash steaks and pat dry. 
  3. Cut two pieces of aluminium foil, large enough to wrap steaks.
  4. Place a steak in centre of each and season with salt and pepper.
  5. In a pan on a low heat mix oil, lemon grass, chilli, ginger and coconut. Stir for five minutes. Take care not to burn.
  6. Pour the contents of the pan over the steaks.
  7. Fold the foil over the salmon, crimping together on top.
  8. Put parcels on a baking tray and bake in oven for 10-12 minutes. 
  9. Remove from oven and open parcels. Remove herbs and chillies. Serve with half a lime. We suggest you serve with aromatic rice.
