Salmon with buttered leeks and yuzu salad dressing


I love Merry Berry, when I first saw her show, this fish dish was the first thing I saw her making and guess what, I was addicted and super excited to wake up the following morning to try it out.

Of course when I first heard about yuzu salad dressing I was a bit scared and then the salad dressing asked for yuzu juice and then I was blown away. I mean I have never even heard of the word yuzu salad dressing let alone yuzu juice… I mean what is a yuzu fruit.

After many sleepless nights I finally found out that you can substitute yuzu juice with lemon juice.

Ingredients for the yuzu salad dressing:


  • 1 x tsp ginger and garlic paste.
  • 1 x red chilli finely chopped.
  • 2 x tbsp. lemon juice
  • 4 x tbsp. olive oil.
  • Salt and pepper to season.

Ingredients for the salmon dish     

  • 4 x pieces of salmon, with the skin removed.
  • 4 x leeks, finely sliced.
  • 25g x margaine.



  • Heat the margarine in a pan and add the leeks, saute till soft.
  • Tip into an oven proof dish and evenly spread around.


  • In a bowl, add all the salad dressings and mix till well combined and set aside.
  • Place the salmon pieces onto of the bed of leeks.
  • Pour the salad dressing over, but keep about 2 tbsp aside.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Pop into a preheated oven and bake at 180 degrees for 15 – 20 minutes or until the fish is cooked through.
  • Remove from the fish from the oven and pour the remaining sauce over the top.
