About this recipe: This is an impressive salmon dish - both to look at and to eat. It's super easy to achieve, however! A fresh mango-cucumber salsa tops pan-fried salmon, served over a lovely cannellini bean mash.


Serves: 4 

  • 1 small cucumber, diced
  • 2 spring onions, sliced
  • 1 large mango, diced
  • 1 tablespoon capers, rinsed
  • 1 small red chilli, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 (400g) tins cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 250ml chicken stock
  • 4 (125g) salmon fillets, skin on
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons groundnut oil

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. To make the salsa: Place cucumber, spring onion, mango, capers, chilli, lemon juice and olive oil in a bowl; mix gently to combine. Set aside.
  2. In a medium pan add the beans, bay leaf, garlic and stock and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes, remove bay leaf. Mash until smooth and creamy. Set aside and keep warm.
  3. Pat the salmon with kitchen paper. Heat the groundnut oil in a non stick pan and cook the salmon fillets over medium heat for a few minutes with the skin side down until golden brown and crispy. Turn over and cook the other side for a couple of minutes until just cooked through.
  4. Place 1/4 of bean puree onto each plate, top with salmon and the top with salsa.
