600g salmon fillets
6 cloves of garlic
150ml honey
3 tbsp soy sauce
1½ tsp chilli flakes
1½ tsp smoked paprika
2 aubergines
2 red peppers
2 red onions
olive oil
salt and pepper
To serve:
A handful of fresh coriander
3 spring onions
1 tbsp sesame seeds
sliced red chilli


Cut the skin off the salmon and cut the fillets into small chunks. If using frozen fillets, defrost them first!

Grate 4 cloves of garlic. Put the grated garlic into a bowl with the honey, soy sauce, chilli flakes and smoked paprika.

Add the salmon chunks and let them marinate for at least 15 minutes.

Heat the oven to 200°C fan. Cut the aubergines, red peppers and red onions into chunks and spread them out on a large baking tray.

Spoon your salmon chunks on to a separate tray.

Drizzle the marinade from the bowl over the trays of veg and salmon, grate over the remaining 2 cloves of garlic, drizzle with oil and and season with salt and pepper.

Pop the veg into the oven for 30 minutes, taking the tray out halfway through and turning everything over. After 15 minutes put the salmon tray into the oven and cook with the veg for the final 15 minutes. Meanwhile chop the coriander and spring onions.

Serve on plates, sprinkled with the sesame seeds, coriander, spring onions and sliced red chilli.
