Mexican salmon

step by step

  • 1Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 220°C, gas 7. Toss the potatoes in the oil and half the paprika. Season and spread out in a single layer on a large nonstick baking tray. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, turning halfway.
  • 2Lay the salmon fillets on top of the potatoes, sprinkle with the remaining paprika; season. Bake together for 10 minutes.
  • 3Meanwhile, make the salsa. Mix the tomatoes, red onion, avocado, chilli, coriander and the juice of 1 lime in a bowl. Season.
  • 4Remove the salmon and potatoes from the oven and spoon over the salsa. Serve with extra lime wedges.
  • This works well with strips of chicken breast, too - bake it for an extra few minutes to ensure it's cooked through
