Give your salmon fillets an Indian-twist by simply marinating in a gorgeous mix of smoky paprika, fiery chilli, fresh coriander, zesty lemon, and fragrant garam masala. This dish is easy to prepare and imparts a great deal of flavour that's sure to please.

  1. Combine (or blend in a small food processor) the lemon juice, paprika, green chilli, coriander, honey, garam masala, garlic and ginger.  
  2. Turn into a bowl and stir in the yogurt.
  3. Lightly coat the top of each salmon fillet with 1tbsp of the yogurt mixture. Set aside for 30 minutes.
  4. Heat the grill to its hottest setting. Transfer the salmon fillets to a heatproof tray and grill for 5-6 minutes. They should be cooked through but still a little pink in the centre.
  5. Serve with lemon wedges.
