Recipe Type: Main
Serves: 4
Ingredients
for chili oil lemon vinaigrette
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 cup chili oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • freshly cracked black pepper
for the corn salad
  • 1 lb cherry tomatoes
  • 2 corns on the cob
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 1 cup finely chopped fresh mint
for the grilled salmon
  • 4 slices of salmon fillet
  • 2 tablespoons yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • salt
Instructions
for chili oil lemon vinaigrette
  1. In a glass jar, pour all the ingredients and whisk until they're all mixed into a smooth vinaigrette.
for the corn salad
  1. Rub a little bit of oil on the corn and grill it in medium high heat by turning it occasionally. This should take about 30 minutes. In the mean time, throw the tomatoes in a baking pan, drizzle with some oil and roast for about 35 minutes. Once corn is grilled, remove the kernel by allowing it to stand on a wide bowl and using a sharp knife, slice downwards. In the same bowl, add shallots, roasted tomatoes, fresh mint and vinaigrette. Give it a toss and it’s done.
for the grilled salmon
  1. Marinate the salmon with yogurt, cumin powder, chili powder and salt. Let it rest for an hour. Once ready, grill it at medium heat for about 6 minutes on each side. Make sure after you place the salmon fillet on the grill, you do not move it or else, it will tear apart. Once it’s cooked through, it will easily come off and you will get a perfect grill mark too.
Notes
Grill fish at the end as it would take the least amount of time and it will stay warm by the time everything is ready.
