Baked Salmon in passion fruit and Piri Piri sauce

Well, lately I been procrastinating  about the posting of a new post in my blog. One, I just return from Lapland Finland , were I was dog mushing, ice braking in the Baltic sea, fishing in a frozen lake, chasing the northern light, and accompany my dad. All with thirty odd people from Israel under the guidance of Mr Motty Blushtein from Kibbutz Nirim.

Two, once I return it took me at least a week to defrost from -15.

And three, I am also very busy with preparing knives to the upcoming Bush Craft event in Cornwall . it seems a never ending task to do it.

Any way (or as Raj Koothrappali say, anyhow) let’s get to business.

The recipe is easy as it get. Although I am highly suspicious about easy recipes, wane it is come to Salmon its ‘Salmon is Salmon Is salmon’, so it is all about the sauce. Piri Piri and Passion fruit have very distinct flavour so it make good sauce for the fish.


4 Salmon filets.

6 tablespoon Piri Piri sauce.

2 Nice ripen Passion fruit or 3 tablespoon Passion fruit couls.

2 Tomatoes cut into cubes.

½ teaspoon dry mushroom powder.

Black pepper .

Olive oil.


All you have to do is to mix some olive oil with all the ingredients minus the fish and the mushroom powder.

Tip some of it at the bottom of oven proof tray, lay the filets in the try and spread the rest of the sauce on top of the fish. Make sure the sauce is spread evenly around the filets but don’t let it cover the fish. Dust with the mushrooms powder and you done.

Bake in pre heated oven at 180 degrees C for about 20 minutes .

Salmon with bacon toping

This recipe is dedicated to my semi devoted followers and friends Allen and Orly from Coventry.

Like always, this recipe is the outcome of necessity. That all I add in my fridge and pantry. So improvisation.

It turn out to be good. It’s simple and cheeky and you won’t be disappointed.


4 Salmon strips without the skein, about 200gr each.

8 Half sundry tomatoes.

10 green olives, halved.

¾ Cup white wine.

Garlic powder.

6 strip of bacon.

Black pepper.

Olive oil.


Grease ceramic oven tin with some oil and lay the fish strips on the bottom . Use one that fit snugly the fish. You don’t want it to be too big for the fish to get lost or too small so the fish will pile one on top of the other.

Pour the wine on top of the salmon, and drips  oil on top of them.

Seasons with the pepper and the garlic powder. Scattered the olives and the tomatoes on top and then lay the bacon strips in right angle to the fish strips.

Bake in pre heated oven at 180 degrees C’ for twenty minutes, or little bit more, depend the size of your fish.

Baked Salmon with white sweet potatoes

Don’t judge the dish by the photo. It is actually a very good dish.

By now, after cooking maybe one hundred kilo of salmon in any way there is. I realised that salmon is salmon, no matter   how you do it. It will always taste like salmon (you may say DUH, but don’t, there is more to it then you think).

So being me, I am usually trying to find way to cook it with a tweets. Not to disguise the salmon taste but to find the way for the dish to be a salmon plus, equal to new and deferent dish( I think I didn’t explain myself properly but that what there is).

Any way here is the recipe.


4 Salmon filets.

1 Finely sliced red onion.

3 White sweet potatoes, cut into (not to coarse) wedges.

1 Teaspoon garlic powder.

1 Teaspoon sumac powder.

½ Teaspoon fenugreek powder.

½ Teaspoon coriander powder.

Ghee. (Ghee is prepared by simmering butter, which is churned from cream, and removing the liquid residue. From Wikipedia).


Melt the ghee and rub it all over the filets, the onion slice and the sweet potatoes.

Scatter the garlic, fenugreek, coriander and salt & pepper all over the fish and the sweet potatoes.

Scatter the onion  with sumac and salt & pepper.

lay the sweet potatoes on the bottom of baking tray, next put the fish filets and top it up with the onion slice.

Cover the tray with aluminium foil and back it in pre heated oven at 180 degrees C for (far as I remember) twenty five minutes. Toward the end of the baking take out the aluminium foil, for the dish to get nice golden colour.
