Salmon with Greek fennel & anchovy mayo


  • Bring the water and oil to the boil and continue boiling for 2-3 mins.  Then add the bay leaves, coriander seeds, peppercorns, seasonings, juice of 2 lemons and the thyme. Bring back to the boil, add the fennel and gently simmer for about 10 mins until tender. Set aside to cool in the liquid.
  • To make the anchovy mayo, combine the mayonnaise and sour cream with a good squeeze of lemon juice, the anchovies, mustard, 1 tbsp chopped parsley and a little salt. Taste for seasoning.
  • Grill the salmon on a lightly oiled grill (or BBQ) to the desired degree, seasoning and sprinkling with a little lemon juice as you do so.
