Method

  1. To make the kebabs, mix the natural yogurt, tikka mix, coriander and lime juice. Add the salmon cubes and place in the fridge for an hour, then place 3-4 cubes on each stick and refrigerate until ready to cook.

  2. To make the salad, cook the bulgur wheat according to the pack, then cool under cold running water and drain. Add the red pepper, halved baby plum tomatoes, kale and chopped coriander and mint to the bulgur wheat. Add the rapeseed oil and lemon juice and garlic. Mix the salad, then season to taste with salt and pepper.

  3. To cook the kebabs, place foil on a grill tray, spray foil with a little oil, then spread kebabs on top. Wrap the ends of the kebab sticks with a little foil to prevent burning. Cook on a high heat grill for 8-10 minutes turning occasionally.

  4. For the yogurt dressing, place the yogurt with all the other ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly.

  5. To assemble, place the salad in the middle of the plate, place kebabs on top, then drizzle with the yogurt dressing.
