6 darnes of salmon
Chilli Crust: 2 red chillies (seeds retained-some like it hot) 2 cloves of garlic Pinch of cayenne pepper Juice of 1 lime 2 stems of spring onions-chopped 2 large dessertspoons of oil
Method 1) Very simply put all the ingredients for the crust into a food processor and spread over the salmon 2) Allow the salmon to marinade for 4-6 hours but a few minutes is sufficient as the crust is quite well flavoured 3) Preheat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas Mark 5 4) Arrange the salmon on a baking tray (i normally line the baking tray with a little parchment paper first) 5) Transfer to the oven and bake for 17-20 minutes depending on how thick the pieces of fish are 6) When cooked the salmon should be firm to the touch
Spiced Sweet Potatoes: 2 large sweet potatoes-peeled and cut into cubes 1 dessertspoon oil Salt & black pepper ½ teaspoon chilli powder (or more as desired)
Method 1) Place the sweet potatoes into a bowl, add in the oil and seasoning and chilli powder and mix well. 2) Place them on a flat tray, lined with baking parchment and bake in a hot oven (190C/375F/Gas Mark 5) for 20-25 minutes.
To Serve: Pile the sweet potatoes onto a large serving plate and top with the spicy salmon Garnish if desired with some steamed broccoli or fresh rocket or herbs and serve immediately.
