  1. For the Punjabi-Spiced Scottish Salmon, first set aside carom and leeks. Place all the other ingredients (not including the last 6 ingredients, these are for the tomato garnish) into a bowl and marinate the Scottish Salmon in this (over night is good but 2 hours is fine).
  2. Deep fry diced leeks in a fryer at 320°F; season with salt and put aside.
  3. For the tomato garnish, rub olive oil on an ovenproof tray then sprinkle with salt, pepper, sugar and chopped garlic. Place the tomatoes and then the herbs, and drizzle with olive oil, salt, pepper and sugar. Cook in low oven for 1 to 2 hours until tomatoes are warm.
  4. To cook the salmon, heat oil (about 1 tablespoon) in a pan until it smokes then remove from heat and cool for 1 minute.
  5. Add carom to flavor oil, let this cool for 1 minute, then pan fry salmon in this oil with all the marinade until just under cooked.
  6. Place on warm plates, each with a portion of Basmati rice in the middle with the tomatoes around the outside of the rice, the fish on top of that. Then pile up some deep fried leeks on top and spoon round the marinade from the pan.
