Seared salmon with tropical salsa

This dish is all about the amazing salsa. I’ve paired it here with salmon, which is rich in Omega 3 and goes really well with all the zingy flavours, but it works just as well with grilled halloumi or even grilled vegetable skewers for a vegan option.

Method

For the salsa, place all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and toss well. Set to one side while you cook the salmon.

 

 

Heat a non-stick frying pan until hot and carefully place the salmon in. Cook on one side for 3-4 minutes and then carefully turn over and cook for a further 2 minutes. This will give you lightly cooked, fish which is still very moist in the middle. If you prefer your salmon more well done, add a couple of minutes to each side.

 

 

Arrange the salsa on a pretty serving platter and place the salmon on top. Garnish with lime wedges and serve.

 

 

*This is also delicious served at room temperature which makes it perfect for a make ahead lunch or dinner

½ a ripe but firm mango, peeled and finely diced
