  1. Heat the grill to medium-high. Mix the jerk paste and 1 tbsp honey together in a bowl. Place the salmon fillets on a foil-lined baking tray and brush all over with the sauce. Cook on the top shelf for 8-10 mins or until just cooked through (move the tray down a shelf if the salmon starts getting too caramelised).

  2. Meanwhile, put the remaining honey, lime juice and some seasoning in a large bowl and mix together. Add the red cabbage, mango, pepper, spring onions and coriander, and toss through the dressing. Serve the salmon on a pile of the slaw.

The slaw is amazing!

I made this with jerk spice powder rather than paste and no slaw (as I was just looking for a different way to cook salmon). Excellent and really easy.

I've made this twice, and found it really tasty & quick. A perfect amount of spiciness for me, although it may be too much for more delicate palates. I served it with plain boiled rice, which countered the spice nicely. I especially liked the mango slaw, and found it tasted better the next day, so in future I will try to make it in advance to give the flavours a chance to meld.

My new favourite way to cook salmon. I've made this 3 times in the last month! So tasty but quick and easy too.

I think the slaw would taste good with saltfish too
