  • 4 thick salmon steaks
  • 2.5cm/1in piece root ginger, peeled and cut into small, very thin slices
  • 2 large cloves garlic, peeled and cut into small, very thin slices
  • 350g/12oz tomatoes, peeled and halved
  • 1 fresh red chilli, de-seeded and sliced as finely as possible
  • 1 small yellow pepper, de-seeded and thinly sliced
  • 4-6 cardamom pods, roughly crushed
  • 400ml/14fl oz tinned coconut milk
  • sea salt
  • 2 limes, juice only
  • handful of fresh mint leaves, chopped


    • Preheat the oven to 150C/300F/Gas 2.
    • Put the fish steaks in a fairly shallow ovenproof dish with a lid, into which they fit quite closely.
    • Scatter the ginger, garlic, tomato, chilli and yellow pepper over and around the fish and the cardamom pods in between.
    • Empty the coconut milk into a separate bowl, add a good sprinkling of sea salt and gradually stir in the lime juice. Pour
    • the mixture gently over and around the fish and cover the dish.
    • Put the dish on the centre shelf and cook for 40-50 minutes, until the fish is lightly done. To discover this insert a small, sharp knife into the centre of one of the steaks - if the flesh is slightly darker pink in the centre it will be perfectly cooked.
    • Remove from the oven.
    • Before serving scatter the mint leaves on top.
