Salmon fillets

  • 4 salmon fillets, each weighing 175g
  • 1 tbsp of vegetable oil, or corn oil

Green pea relish

For the first marinade

For the second marinade

To garnish

Begin by preparing the green pea relish. Place the green peas in a blender with the ginger, garlic, green chillies, salt, sugar and 1 tablespoon of the mustard oil. Blitz until finely puréed
Place a pan over a medium heat and add the remaining mustard oil. Once the oil is hot, add the mustard seeds and curry leaves. Once the seeds and leaves are crackling, remove the pan from the heat and pour onto the puréed peas. Check the seasoning and finish with lime juice
Mix together the first marinade ingredients in a bowl, pat the salmon fillets dry with kitchen paper and rub the marinade all over the fillets. Set aside for 15 minutes
Meanwhile, prepare the second marinade. Place the cheese in a small bowl and use your fingers to form a paste - you can add a teaspoon of flour to help prevent lumps forming. Add the yoghurt and dill and mix until the paste is smooth, then add the wholegrain mustard and chillies. Finally, mix in the cream
Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4
Place a large ovenproof pan over a medium-high heat and add the vegetable oil. Once the oil is hot, sear the fillets of salmon for 1 1/2 minutes on each side. Remove from the heat, spread the second marinade over the fish and transfer to the oven for 10-12 minutes
  • 1 tbsp of vegetable oil
Serve the salmon fillets onto plates with a few spoonfuls of the green pea chutney. Pipe some fresh mango purée around each plate, arrange the vegetable shavings over the pea relish and drizzle with mustard oil. Serve immediately
