The flavours here are very powerful. The salmon is sweet and succulent, whilst the chutney is minty, but they are very well matched. If you can leave the salmon overnight to marinate, all the better. I cook the salmon in the marinade, then cook down the remaining marinade as a dipping sauce.

Ingredients
 

  • 700 g salmon fillet, (4 x 175g)
  • 200 ml Mirin (Japanese rice liquor)
  • 150 ml soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp brown miso paste
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp sherry vinegar

Chutney

  • 60 g fresh mint leaves, washed well and chopped finely
  • 30 g tarragon leaves
  • 2 large ripe tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 tsp green chilli, heaped chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • finely grated zest and juice from 1 large lime
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions
 

  • Place the mint, tomatoes, chilli, garlic, lime juice, zest and olive oil into a bowl and mix well.
  • Spoon into a bowl, season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Place the mirin, soy, miso paste, sesame oil, sugar and vinegar into a saucepan, mix well and then bring to a boil.
  • Turn down the heat and simmer the sauce until you have about 150mls.
  • Remove from the heat and cool.
  • Once cooled, pour half over the salmon and leave to marinate for at least an hour; it is better overnight in the fridge.

To cook the salmon

  • Preheat the grill to its hottest setting.
  • Lift out the salmon, leaving a little sauce on the fish, then place onto a grilling tray or dish.
  • Cook for 6-8 minutes, depending on the temperature of the grill, or until the salmon is JUST cooked, best left undercooked.
  • Meanwhile, boil the remainder of the marinade, and serve with the salmon as a dipping sauce.
  • Serve the salmon with the sauce and the chutney.
