Salmon With Citrus Salsa

Delicious tender salmon that is crispy and full of citrus flavour on the outside. Add an extra layer of flavour and a hint of chilli spice by serving alongside our Caribbean Rice and Peas. For a vegetarian version, replace the salmon with boiled whole sweetcorn and replace the orange slices with the zest, finely grated over the corn once it comes out of the oven.

Tildalicious tip: the orange slices act as a seal to protect the marinade during cooking and ensure perfectly tender fish as well.
