Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Make 3-4 slashes on each side of the fish. Rub in the seasoning, lime zest and oil, making sure you get it right into the slashes and the cavity. Place on a baking tray lined with foil and bake for 12-15 mins or until just cooked through.

Turn the grill to high and cook for 2-3 mins more to char the skin. Cover and rest for a few mins.

For the salsa, mix the mango, chilli, avocado, spring onions, coriander and lime juice, and season. Bring a small pan of water to the boil, add the beans and cook for 4 mins, then drain. Serve the fish with rice, beans and salsa.
