Grilled Salmon Salad


  • 8 cardamom pods, crushed

  • 1 tsp cumin seeds

  • Grated zest and juice of 1 lime

  • Juice of 1 orange

  • 1 tbsp soy sauce

  • 1 tbsp honey

  • 4 pieces skinless salmon fillet

  • 4 cups mixed salad leaves

  • 1 mango, peeled and cubed

  • 1 papaya, peeled, seeded and cubed

  • 1 orange, peeled and segmented

  • Salt and pepper


  • 1. Heat small skillet over medium heat. Scrape seeds from cardamom pods; add to pan with cumin seeds. Toast for few seconds to release aromas and remove to shallow non-metallic dish.

  • 2. Add lime zest and juice, orange juice, soy sauce and honey to seeds; add salt and pepper. Lay salmon in dish and turn to coat. Cover and marinate 30 minutes.

  • 3. Preheat broiler. Place salmon on broiler pan and broil 4 to 5 minutes on one side only; salmon fillets should still be slightly translucent in centre. Meanwhile, pour marinade into small pot and bring just to boil.

  • 4. Arrange salad greens on four plates. Scatter mango, papaya and orange over. Place cooked salmon on top and drizzle with warm marinade. Serve immediately.
