Turmeric, Lemon & Yogurt Mash Up

Oh lordy, this is such an incredible fish and seafood marinade.  Lots of personality and you can adapt and use your favourite herbs.

I call it a ‘Mash Up’ because you can use it as a dressing for salads,  roasted potatoes or drizzled through warm cous cous.  I dollop a spoonful on lamb chops just off the BBQ or in the winter a puddle my soup!

Prep Time: 10 mins

Cook time: None

Serves: Makes 130 ml


1 tsp turmeric, ground
1 tsp smoked paprika
handful of fresh herbs, chopped (I love lemon thyme or parsley & dill)
1 small lemon (juice & zest)
1 tsp chilli flakes
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 tbsp olive oil
125g greek yogurt
salt and pepper


Mix ingredients together. Store chilled in a covered container or bowl.

Jax Says : if marinating fish use a firm fleshed fillet, cod, monkfish, hoki, snapper.  Also really good on prawns and salmon.  Marinate for a minimum of 30 minutes.
