This recipe is suitable for any white fish, even salmon, and it is so easy to cook. This simple recipe is quite delicious. You can oven cook it or pan-fry it or even grill it. Serves 4


  • 4 fish fillets, salmon or other

  • marinade

  • 2 tbsp. light balsamic or other good quality vinegar

  • Juice and rind/zest of 1 lemon or lime

  • 1 tbsp. French style whole mustard

  • 5-6 tbsp. olive oil

  • 2 tbsp. fresh dill, finely chopped

  • 2 garlic cloves, finely grated

  • 1 spring/green onion or a few chives, thinly chopped

  • Salt to taste

  • A sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper


  1. Mix all ingredients, except salmon, in a bowl.

  2. Add salmon fillets and coat well.

  3. Marinate for 3-4 hours or overnight in a fridge in an airtight container.

  7. Alternatively, preheat grill at maximum. Grill on a lined tray for 6-7 minutes on each side.

  8. Or pan fry for 6-7 minutes on each side on a medium hot (not smoking hot) pan.

  9. The flesh is ready when it begins to flake a little, when gently parted with a knife.

  10. Serving

  11. Serves with a salad of choice and fresh bread or with new potatoes and green vegetables or with rice pilaf.
