Chipotle salmon with bean salsa

Chipotle comes from the word chilpoctli, meaning 'smoked chilli', and is the primary chilli used in Mexican-inspired cuisine. It gives a wonderfully rich, earthy taste to the salmon but can also be added to salsa, stews and combined with other spices to make marinades.
