Really delicious - family favourite. I bake the salmon in the oven for about 20 miuntes for a sweeter smelling kitchen!

Wow, what a tasty dish and so quick and easy to make too! I've never used harissa paste before and was (pleasantly) surprised by its hotness, although my partner found it too hot (the lightweight:-)). I used a lightly smoked salmon and served up with cucumber and spring onions to cool things down a little. Absolutely lovely. I'll be cooking this one again sometime soon.

This worked really well and very quick to put together. I wrapped my salmon in foil and baked in a hot oven for 20 minutes instead of grilling.
