  • 240 g salmon fillets (2 x 120g per fillet)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • 125 g corn kernels (tinned)
  • 250 g cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1/2 avocado diced
  • 1/4 cup onion (red) diced
  • 1/4 cup coriander (fresh) chopped
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon wine vinegar (red)
  • 2 wedges lemon(s) to serve
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Place all salad ingredients in a bowl and toss gently. Set aside while you cook the salmon.
  2. Heat a fry pan to medium-high heat. Coat the salmon in oil and season both sides with salt and pepper.
  3. Cook salmon skin side down for 2-4 minutes depending on thickness. Turn and cook other side for a few minutes or until cooked. It should flake easily with a fork and still be a little pink in the centre.
  4. Serve salmon with salad and a wedge of lemon.
