Mango Salsa:
  • • 250g mango, diced

  • • 1 small red onion, diced

  • • 50g Jalapeños diced

  • • 50g coriander, chopped

  • • 1 avocado, diced

  • • diced Juice 1 lime

  • • 4x140g salmon fillets

Jerk Marinade:
  • • 90g spring onions

  • • 2 teaspoons black pepper

  • • 15g fresh thyme

  • • 5 pimento seeds

  • • 1 scotch bonnet chilli pepper

  • • 4 garlic cloves

  • • 1 teaspoon gravy browning or soy sauce

  • • 50ml vinegar 50ml water

  • • 1 teaspoon honey


METHOD

For the mango salsa:

1. Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl, mix together and then leave to rest in the fridge until you are ready to serve.

For the Jerk-spiced salmon:

1. First, blend all the Jerk ingredients together in a blender to make the marinade.

2. Season the salmon with the Jerk marinade and rest in the fridge for at least an hour.

3. Brush a little vegetable oil onto the grill, then carefully place the salmon on the grill and cook until brown on each side.

4. Garnish the salmon with the mango salsa and serve.

Cook’s Notes:

This recipe makes a lot more Jerk spice paste than required. Any leftover marinade can be refrigerated for about 3-4 days to be used to flavour chicken or vegetables or can be frozen in ice cube trays for when you want to repeat the recipe again.

  • • 1kg peaches, peeled and de-stoned

  • • 150g caster sugar
