Salmon Alla Shells

Preparation time less than 5 minutes. Cooking time 15-20 minutes.

Ingredients (serves 2-3):

  • Salmon steaks or slices for each person
  • 1 red chilli (not hot, remove seeds)
  • 1 medium onion (red or white)
  • 1 can of condensed chicken soup (powered soup can be substituted)
  • 250ml chicken stock
  • A small quantity of dill
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


Finely chop the onions, and the chilli and place them in a warm fry pan, with a little olive oil. Allow them to fry gently. As the onions start to turn brown, add the Salmon (skin down if they are slices) and turn up the heat.

After 2-3 minutes add the chicken stock, and the condensed chicken soup. Cover and allow to simmer before reducing the heat.

Simmer for 10 minutes or until Salmon is no longer “pink”, add the chopped dill, and leave to stand (rest) with no heat for 5 minutes before serving.

I served with creamed potatoes, fresh carrots and peas.
