1 pickled chilli, drained
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tbsp tamari soy sauce
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp coconut sugar
2 salmon fillets, boneless skin on
2 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp mirin
Handful of bean sprouts
1 cucumber, halved and thinly sliced
Small handful fresh mint leaves, chopped
Small handful of coriander leaves, chopped
2 spring onions, sliced finely
1 tbsp chopped cashews
Place the chilli, garlic, vinegar, tamari, apple cider vinegar and coconut sugar in a food processor and process to combine.
Put the salmon fillets in a shallow dish. Pour over the marinade and set aside in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Make up the dressing by mixing the lime juice, maple syrup and mirin together. Put the bean sprouts, cucumber, mint, coriander, spring onions, cashews and the dressing in a bowl and toss until well combined.
Preheat the grill to high. Remove the salmon from the marinade. Place the salmon on a lined baking tray. Grill for about 7 minutes or until the fish is golden and just cooked through. Place the remaining marinade in a small pan and simmer to form a glaze. Pour over the cooked salmon.
