031 - Cayenne Pepper Grilled Salmon


“To be honest I’m not the biggest fan of grilled salmon or fish in general really. Any meal that doesn’t involve red meat usually leaves me at least a little dissapointed however nutrition wise it makes sense to work some fish and lean protein into the diet every once in a while. As grilled salmon recipes go this one is fair tasty with the cayenne pepper giving it a real kick.”

Skill Level: Beginner

Servings: 2


  • 2 Salmon Fillets Skin On(approx. 150g each)
  • 50g Green Beans
  • 2 Potatoes
  • 1 tbsp. Full Fat Mayonaise
  • 1 tsp. Organic Butter
  • Cayenne Pepper (optional)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


  1. First up you need to make sure the salmon has been de-boned properly. Run you finger along the fillet and if you find a pointy bit that’s probably a bone (or you have one very happy fish on your hands). Use tweezers to remove the bone. In a pinch you can use your teeth however I do not recommend for obvious reasons.
  2. Now it’s time to season the fish. Add salt, pepper and cayenne pepper to taste. I like to go hard on the cayenne.
  3. Place your potatoes in the microwave for approx. 10 mins. Not as good as a proper roast but a massive time saver.
  4. Once again I cooked on the BBQ but as always there is no reason you can’t do the next part in a pan. Place the salmon skin side down on a high heat. Let this cook for about 5 mins depending on thickness. I was lazy so I also chucked the green beans on the grill. Didn’t seem worth getting the steamer out and I don’t mind the grilled taste.
  5. Now you want to turn your salmon and cook for 3-5 mins top side down. As it gets closer towards cooker you might want to balance the sides for a min each to really seal in the love.
  6. Plate up all your elements and add a tbsp. mayo for the salmon and a smidgen (don’t go crazy now) of butter for the potato.
