Grilled Salmon, Avocado with Watercress


  • Salsa:
  • 1 bag of watercress, chopped
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 1 red chilli, de-seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 red onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 1 large ripe avocado, peeled, stoned and diced
  • 4 plum tomatoes, skinned, de-seeded and diced
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • juice of 2 limes
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 4 x 175g approx salmon fillets
  • Red Pepper Puree:
  • 2 red peppers
  • Half a garlic clove, peeled
  • 2 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
  • 50-100ml olive oil
  • salt and pepper


In a large bowl, carefully mix all the salsa ingredients. Cook the salmon on a griddle or barbecue (not too fierce a heat) for approx 3-4 minutes each side – take care not to dry the fish. Serve salmon with salsa accompaniment, garnished with red pepper puree.

Note: The salsa goes well with almost any grilled meat or fish.

Red pepper puree:
Grill the peppers until the skins are black, about 15 minutes. Cool and scrape off the charred skins. Remove seeds, place in a processor with garlic and vinegar. Blend and drizzle in the olive oil until a pouring consistency is reached. Season and serve.
