  • 1 tbsp Essential Olive Oil
  • 1 Essential Onion, sliced
  • 3 clove/s garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 3 tbsp Cooks' Ingredients Rose Harissa Paste
  • 400g can Mutti Cherry Tomatoes
  • 480g pack Waitrose 4 Scottish Salmon Fillets, skin removed
  • Flat leaf parsley, to serve (optional)
  • Essential Greek Yogurt, to serve (optional)

For the bulgur wheat

  • 250g pack LoveLife Wholewheat Bulgur
  • 300g Essential Frozen Garden Peas
  • 1 tbsp Essential Olive Oil
  • 3 Essential Salad Onions, finely sliced
  • ½ lemon, juice


  1. For the bulgur wheat, bring a large pan of water to the boil, add the bulgur pack and boil for 7 minutes. Add the peas and boil for 3 minutes. Drain thoroughly, then tip into a large bowl. Stir in the oil, salad onions and lemon juice; season and set aside to cool.

  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil over a medium heat in a large lidded sauté pan or shallow casserole dish. Fry the onion with a pinch of salt for 2-3 minutes, then add the garlic and cumin; fry for another 2-3 minutes. Add the harissa and cook for 2-3 minutes more. Stir in the cherry tomatoes and bring to a gentle simmer.

  3. Lower the fish into the pan; cover with a lid. Cook for 8 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through, opaque and flakes easily with a fork. Serve with the bulgur wheat, parsley and yogurt, if liked.

Cook’s tip

Stir a little leftover harissa paste through mayonnaise then use it to give sandwiches and dips a spicy kick.
