SALMON WITH SUMAK ( Sumakli Somon baligi )

This sweet but piquant Turkish style salmon dish will be perfect for entertaining. Added lemon juice and sumak makes this dish mouthwatering. Serves 2

  • 2 Salmon steaks
  • 2 Cloves of garlic, grated
  • 2 tsp  sumak
  • 1 tsp coarse black pepper
  • 1 tsp brown sugar or honey
  • 2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice or white wine vinegar
  • Mixed roasted vegetables
  • Extra sumak
  • Lemon wedges

Mix all the marinade ingredients in a shallow dish. Make small slits on the fish and  place the steaks in the marinade making sure they are covered. Cover with cling film and place in the fridge to marinate for 2-3 hours.
Remove the fish from marinade and cook in the griddle pan over a medium-high heat 3-4 minutes each side. Transfer the salmon to a serving plate with roasted vegetables and lemon wedges. Sprinkle some sumak over it just before serving.
