Barbequed Cardamon Salmon

September 14th, 2008 · No Comments

By special request – this is a dish I’ve made for Christmas lunch. Very easy, but spectacular.


  • Salmon – as fresh as possible, filleted skinned and cut into serving size pieces
  • Ground cardamon
  • Plain unsweetened yoghurt (about 500 ml)
  • Manuka honey (2 tablespoons)
  • Oil
  • Freshly ground pepper & salt

Arrange salmon in a glass dish, sprinkle with cardomon and cover with 1/2 mixture of yoghurt & honey. Turn fish, sprinkle with cardamon and cover with rest of yoghurt/honey mixture. Put in fridge and allow to marinade for 30-60 minutes.Take out of fridge and season with salt & pepper.

Heat barbecue (preferably flat plate, lightly oil and barbecue salmon for a few minutes, turn and barbecue other side. Salmon cooks quickly so be careful not to over cook. Serve.
