  • 8 scallops (fresh or frozen)
  • 400g Norwegian salmon (skinned and boned)
  • 2 tablespoons chilli oil
  • For the tabbouleh:
  • 2 cups bulgur wheat
  • 2 spring onions
  • 3 large tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped mint
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt


1 Firstly, thaw out any frozen scallops. Then start with the tabbouleh. Boil the bulgur wheat as per the instructions on the pack (some require boiling, others can just be soaked) and then drain.

2 Clean and chop the spring onions. Halve the tomatoes, remove the skin and cut the tomato flesh into small cubes. Mix the spring onions, tomatoes, parsley and mint into the bulgur wheat. Stir in lemon juice and oil and season with salt.

3 Cut the salmon into cubes that match the size of the scallops.

4 Thread the salmon and scallops alternately on skewers. Brush with chilli oil and grill the skewers for about one minute on each of the four sides.

5 Serve the skewers on a bed of the tabbouleh.
