Smoky Chorizo Salmon

Recipe of the week banner

We love finding new ways to cook up our favourite ingredients and this effortless recipe from Jamie Oliver is a super tasty way to incorporate salmon into a light lunch or quick evening meal. This delicious recipe comes from the book Jamie’s Quick & Easy Food and is easy to whip up in just 11 minutes!

2 x 150g salmon fillets, skin on, scaled, pin-boned, from sustainable sources
300g ripe mixed-colour cherry tomatoes
4 sprigs of fresh basil
8 black olives, (stone in)
30g higher-welfare chorizo

Put the salmon flesh side down in a large non-stick frying pan and place on a medium-high heat. As the pan comes up to temperature and the salmon begins to sizzle (about 3 minutes), flip it over and cook on the skin side for 5 minutes, or until very crisp and just cooked (depending on its thickness).

Meanwhile, halve the cherry tomatoes, tear up most of the basil leaves, then toss it all with 1 tablespoon of red wine vinegar and a pinch of sea salt and black pepper. Squash the olives and discard the stones, then finely chop the flesh. Mix with 1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil and a splash of water.

Finely slice the chorizo, add to the pan for the last 2 minutes, then toss in the dressed tomatoes for 30 seconds. Divide between your plates, with the salmon on top. Spoon over the dressed olives and pick over the remaining basil.
