    Cook’s tip

    You can swap the salmon in this dish for tuna steak, trout or prawns. If you want to go veggie, this recipe can be made without the fish.

    Drink recommendation

    Try a refreshing rosé to balance these light but complex flavours: Zalze Cabernet Sauvignon/ Shiraz Rosé 2010, Coastal Region, South Africa.
