Scottish salmon, creamed aubergine


Serves 2

Ingredients:

Scottish salmon portions 160 g x 2
Harissa paste 10 g
Aubergine
Plain yoghurt 50 g
Fresh garlic 1 clove
1 Lemon 
20 ml Olive oil
Fresh mint
1 sprig Flat leaf parsley
2 sprigs Pomegranate x ½
10g Tahini 

Method:

Combine the harissa paste with half the oil and brush over the salmon and set aside.

Chargrill the aubergines until blackened on the outside but tender inside- this normally takes around 15-18 mins turning frequently.  Allow the aubergines to cool slightly and scoop out and mash with a fork.

Mix in the chopped garlic, chopped herbs, yoghurt tahini and the remaining oil.

Season the salmon with salt and grill.

Spoon the aubergine onto the plate and the salmon on top. Scatter the pomegranate seeds over. Serve with bulgar wheat, warm pita breads or a crisp salad.

Chefs tip: 

You can omit the tahini for allergies. Works well with trout, seatrout and monkfish.
