Salmon Dahl

Salmon Dahl

I picked up four Salmon fillets for £1.50 in my local Co-op the other day and ironically the night before I had bookmarked this recipe on the BBC Good Food website. It was meant to be!

I fiddled with the original recipe as hubs has a strong dislike for coriander so here is my version, and I can tell you it was fantastic, and low in fat - double bonus!


| Serves: 4  | Prep Time: 10 Minutes | Cook Time: 30 Minutes  | Total Time: 40 Minutes  |


  • 75g red lentils
  • 400ml chicken stock
  • 1 small onion , chopped
  • 2 tomatoes , chopped
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp garam masala , plus extra for the salmon
  • pinch chilli flakes
  • 2 x 130g fillets salmon
  • sunflower oil


  • Step 1: Put the first 7 ingredients in a pan, bring to a simmer, cover and cook for 20 minutes until lentils are tender. 
  • Step 2: Rub the salmon with oil, seasoning and a little garam masala. Grill for 6-7 minutes until just cooked. Break into large chunks and gently stir through the dahl. Serve with  rice.

  1. Bookmarking this one! I have 20 pounds of Alaskan salmon arriving this month.

  2. Beth, this looks delish. Must try this soon! Btw I don't much like coriander, especially the fresh stuff, it tastes like fairy liquid!


  3. Yum! I'm on my own for dinner tonight so I might give this one a try.

  4. It looks delicious Beth. I would have left out the coriander (cilantro) factor too, but that is just me (and hubs).
