    About this recipe: Harrisa is a spicy, smooth paste made with chillies, tomatoes and garlic. I think it goes really well with fresh salmon.

    Serves: 4 

    • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
    • 450g salmon fillets or steaks
    • 1 pinch salt and pepper to taste
    • 4 thin slices lemon
    • 2 thin slices sweet onion, separated into rings
    • 80g mayonnaise
    • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
    • 1 teaspoon harissa
    • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
    • 1 tablespoon orange juice
    • 1 tablespoon white wine

    1. Preheat oven to 220 C / Gas 7. Coat the inside of a baking dish with vegetable oil.
    2. Sprinkle the salmon with salt and pepper, and place into the baking dish. Arrange the lemon slices and onion rings on the salmon. In a bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, harissa and paprika until the mixture is smooth and well combined. Spread the mayonnaise mixture over the fish, lemon, and onion slices, getting the sauce onto the fish. Pour the orange juice and wine around the salmon.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven until the fish has cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove the baking dish from the oven and turn on the grill. Set the oven rack to about 5 inches from the grill and continue to cook the fish until nicely browned, about 3 minutes.

    You can place the onions and lemon slices on the salmon after spreading the sauce, but they can burn under the grill.
