This is such a pretty salad and it’s full of goodness. Serve with any BBQ meat or something spicy or smoky as it has a fresh, zesty dressing.

Remember to keep an eye on the salmon when it’s cooking as it will caramelise quickly with the sweet chilli sauce.

2 tbsp olive oil

¼ cup sweet chilli sauce

½ tsp sea salt

½ tsp lime zest

4 pieces boneless salmon fillet

1 can black beans, drained

1 cup fresh or tinned corn kernels

1 red capsicum, diced

1 small red onion, diced

¼ cup lime avocado oil

2 tbsp lemon or lime juice

1 tsp chilli and lime seasoning

2 handfuls fresh rocket leaves

Tortilla chips, to serve

1 Combine the olive oil, sweet chilli sauce, salt, lime zest and spoon all over the salmon. Leave to marinate for about
30 minutes if you can.

2 For the salad, combine the beans, corn, capsicum and onion in a large bowl. Add the avocado oil, lemon or lime juice and flavoured seasoning to a jar and shake well. Toss the dressing through the salad.

3 To cook the salmon, heat a large nonstick frying pan and cook the fillets on a medium-low heat for 3-4 minutes each side until caramelised and well coloured. The salmon should flake at the thickest part when cooked, but will still be quite pink and juicy.

4 Plate salmon fillets with a few rocket leaves and a large spoon of the black bean salad. Serve with a few crunchy tortilla chips on the side to
dip into the bean mixture.
