Recipe: Cajun salmon and salsa

Prep and cooking time: 20-30 mins

Serves: 2


  • 2 fresh salmon fillets, deboned and skinned
  • 1 tsp Cajun seasoning
  • 2 medium corn cobs or 200g frozen or tinned sweetcorn
  • 300g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1⁄2 medium cucumber, diced
  • 1⁄2 medium avocado, diced
  • 1 handful fresh coriander, roughly chopped
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lemon or lime, juiced


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan.
  2. Place the salmon on an oven-proof tray or dish, and evenly sprinkle the Cajun seasoning and a little salt and pepper.
  3. Bake the fillets for 10-15mins (depending on the thickness of the fillet), or cook to your liking.
  4. Meanwhile, cook the corn in a microwave or boil in salted water for 3-5mins, until tender. Strain and set aside to cool. If using tinned corn, rinse and drain it instead.
  5. If using corn on the cob, use a sharp knife to slice down lengthways to remove the kernels.
  6. Place the corn, tomatoes, cucumber, avocado, and coriander in a bowl and add in a little salt and pepper. Drizzle with the oil and lemon juice, and stir gently.
  7. Serve the salmon with the salsa and a lemon or lime wedge.
