Method

  1. Heat the grill. Place the salmon, skin-side up, on a foil-lined tray, season well and rub the sugar on top. Grill for about 10 mins until cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile, blanch the beans in boiling water for 1 min, drain, rinse in cold water and drain again. Arrange on 4 plates, then add the mango and shallots.
  3. Mix the dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Break the salmon into a few pieces over each plate. Add the mint or coriander leaves, coconut and chilli to each. Pour over the dressing and serve with a lime wedge.

I did this as a starter, but wasn't impressed. Flavours just didn't seem to match.

I am really surprised at how delicious this was. The flavours really worked. There was no point putting sugar on the salmon prior to grilling as this just burned the skin. The dressing was so tasty too. A really fast supper dish which is yummy! 5 stars from me

Fantastic recipe - everyone enjoyed it. It looks beautiful and the range of flavours are very tropical and delicious. I used less sugar and low fat coconut milk to make it less calories and healthier. This will be a favourite.
