This is a great recipe. Tried it out one night when a friend was visiting from interstate. My husband (not a dedicated cook) cooked it with the help of my friend. Served with a simple green salad and a nice white wine, it was a real hit with us all. Highly recommended, especially if you are pressed for time.

Lovely simple but very tasty meal, ready in less than 15 minutes. I would possibly not deseed the chilli as I like a bit more heat, but when sharing a meal like this with my young children the mild chilli works well. Will definitely have again, a quick meal after a busy day!!

Quick and easy, although could have taken more chilli and salmon in my opinion.
