Tip

Halloumi
If you're vegetarian, use the spice paste on slices of halloumi before griddling.

Choosing your salmon
Wild fish has a healthier footprint than farmed; it is also leaner and firmer (as the wild fish has had to swim against the tide) – so it can dry out if you are not careful.

Method

  1. Finely grate the garlic into a bowl for the spice rub. Boil the corn for the salsa salad for 6-8 mins until tender, then drain and cut off the kernels with a sharp knife.

  2. Stir the spices, 1 tbsp lime juice and the oil into the garlic to make a spice rub, then use to coat the salmon.

  3. Mix the remaining lime zest and juice into the corn and stir in all the remaining ingredients. Heat a frying pan and cook the salmon for 2 mins each side so that it is still a little pink in the centre. Serve with the salsa salad with extra lime wedges, if you like, for squeezing over.
