Jerk Salmon

  • 4 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons allspice
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Pinch of salt
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 thick salmon fillets roughly 140g/5oz each

Mango and Avocado Salsa

  • 1 small red onion diced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 100 g mango diced
  • 1 avocado diced
  • 6 cherry tomatoes diced
  • 1 red chilli sliced (optional)
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons fresh coriander (cilantro)

To serve (optional)

  • Rice or tortillas
  • Extra fresh coriander (cilantro)
  • Extra limes


  1. Mix the paprika, allspice, cayenne pepper, pinch of salt, juice of 1 lime and olive oil together in a bowl. Add the salmon and turn in the marinade to coat well. Marinate for at least 10 minutes or up to 2 hours.
  2. Just before you start cooking the fish, make the salsa. Mix the diced red onion and lime juice together in a bowl first, then add all the other salsa ingredients and mix again. Set aside to allow the flavours to develop.
  3. Cook the salmon under a medium-hot grill (broiler) for 9 minutes. Skin side up for the first 3 minutes (to get a crispy skin) then skin side down for the remaining 6 minutes, or until cooked to your liking.
  4. Alternatively, you could cook the salmon on the BBQ.
  5. Serve with the salsa and either rice or tortillas, if you wish.
