crumbed salmon with sweet potato chips
- 1kg sweet potatoes (kumara), peeled and cut into chips
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- sea salt and cracked black pepper

To spice it up: add finely grated lemon rind and dried chilli flakes to the breadcrumbs.

Hello, Jo. Thanks for your question. No, unfortunately it wouldn’t be the best, as there is a crumb on the salmon. You might find that it will be hard to get off the barbecue plate without the crumb falling off. The DH Team.
Is this recipe suitable to cook on the BBQ?
Delicious, healthy and quick dinner. I substituted breadcrumbs for Yankee (Japanese) breadcrumbs and was very pleased with the result. Thanks Donna, you make me look good!
