Ingredients

  • 2 salmon fillets , about 140g/5oz each
  • juice 1 lime
  • pinch chilli powder
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp ground coriander
  • pinch of soft brown sugar
  • drizzle of sunflower oil
  • steamed rice , to serve

For the salsa

  • 1 ripe avocado , peeled and diced
  • handful cherry tomatoes , quartered
  • 2 spring onions , sliced
  • juice 1 lime
  • splash of olive oil
  • bunch of coriander , half roughly chopped, half picked into sprigs

Method

  • STEP 1

    Put the salmon in a bowl, pour over the lime juice and leave the salmon to ‘cure’ for 5 mins. Meanwhile, mix all the spices together with the sugar. Lift the salmon out of the lime juice and roll in the spices so it’s completely coated.

  • STEP 2

    Heat grill to high. Grease a baking tray, then sit the salmon, flesh-side up, on the tray. Grill for 5 mins, until the salmon is cooked through and the edges are starting to blacken. While the salmon is cooking, gently mix all the salsa ingredients together with the roughly chopped coriander. When the fish is cooked, serve with the salsa, some rice and the coriander sprigs.
