100g jar tamarind purée
2 stalks lemongrass, sliced (woody layers removed)
1 small red chilli, seeds removed and finely chopped
3 cm root ginger, grated
3 tbsp palm sugar or honey
a small bunch mint, chopped
700g piece salmon, skin on
a small handful coriander, chopped
Mix the tamarind, lemongrass, chilli, ginger, palm sugar and mint together in a small bowl. Put the salmon on a greased piece of foil or a banana leaf (find these in the frozen section at Asian supermarkets).
Brush a thick layer of the sauce over the salmon and grill for 10 minutes.
Serve sprinkled with coriander and a bowl of extra marinade on the side for dipping.
