Frequently asked questions
What do you use for the flatbreads?
For this recipe I use gluten free pitta bread which I warm in the toaster. My favourite are the BFree Stone Baked Pitta. If you did want to make your own flatbreads I do have a Yeasted Naan Bread Recipe on my website (minus the toppings for a flatbread) however this would take a little longer as they require time to rest for the dough to rise.
What yoghurt do you usefor the cucumber yoghurt?
For this recipe you will need a plain (no sugars) yoghurt. I tend to use the Alpro Plain No Sugars however any other alternative would also work.
1/2cucumber (grated and then the juice squeezed out)
Juice of 1/2 a lime
Handful fresh mint(finely chopped)
2gluten free pitta/flat breads
Handful iceberg lettuce (shredded)
1/4red cabbage (finely chopped)
2spring onions(finely chopped)
Handful pomegranate seeds
For the salmon
In a large bowl combine harissa paste, lemon juice, cumin, paprika, garlic and olive oil. Mix well.
Add your salmon chunks and mix well until they are coated in the harissa mixture.
Heat a large non stick pan on a medium to high heat and add a little more olive oil. Add the salmon and cook for around 5 minutes, until crispy on the outside and cooked through.
For the cucumber mint yoghurt
Combine dairy free yoghurt with grated cucumber (ensure that all of the juice is squeezed out of the cucumber first), lime juice and fresh mint.
Toast your gluten free pittas until warm.
Assemble your flat breads by adding the mint yogurt, followed by iceberg lettuce, red cabbage, the harissa salmon, spring onion and pomegranate seeds. Serve with lime wedges.
