Crispy-Skinned Salmon with Gingered Aioli

Andrew Grinton

Salmon skin is rich in omega-3 oils, vitamins A and C, calcium and iron. This recipe makes it delicious and fun to eat because it's like a shrimp chip. Recipe by Eshun Mott.


  • 600 g salmon fillets, skin on (cut into 4 pieces)

  • 1/2 tsp garam masala, (Indian spice)

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/8 tsp black pepper

  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise

  • 2 tbsp orange juice

  • 1 tbsp finely chopped green onion

  • 1 tsp grated ginger

  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper


  • Preheat oven to 350F.

  • Season fish with garam masala, salt and pepper.

  • Heat oil in a large ovenproof frying pan over medium-high. Add fish, skin-side down and fry without moving until skin is golden and crisp, about 5 min.

  • Transfer frying pan to the oven and roast for 6 to 7 min or until fish is cooked through (white juices will appear, and fish will flake easily with a fork).

  • While fish is roasting, whisk together mayonnaise, orange juice, green onion, ginger and cayenne pepper to make aioli.

  • Serve fish skin-side up, with Gingered Aioli.
