  2. Place the salmon on a tray lined with baking paper, brush with macadamia oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast the fillets for 4-6 minutes, depending on thickness, or cook the whole side of salmon for 10-12 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile make the salsa by combining the remaining ingredients, except for the lemon wedges. Taste for salt and pepper.
  4. Remove the salmon from the oven, top with the salsa and a drizzle of olive oil. Serve with lemon wedges and lots of lovely green salad.
  5. The salsa can be prepared a couple of hours ahead, and the salmon can be served either warm or at room temperature.
Recipe Notes

Optional Ideas:

  • This salsa would be also delicious with any other kind of fish or seafood, or with chicken, or on top of vegetables such as sweet potatoes, carrots, fennel or beetroots.
  • Any leftover salmon and salsa would make wonderful fish cakes.  Just combine it into patties with some mashed sweet potato and beaten egg.  Fry until golden in a little macadamia oil, coconut oil or ghee, and serve with mayonnaise, tartare sauce or aioli.
