  1. To prepare salmon: in a large bowl combine lime juice, garlic, soy sauce, chilli and 1 tablespoon of the oil. Mix with a fork. Place salmon fillets in the bowl and coat thoroughly in the marinade. Set aside for 30 minutes in the fridge.
  2. Heat remaining oil in a large frying pan on high. Cook salmon until golden and crispy on the outside but pink on the inside.
  3. Combine all salad ingredients in a large bowl and toss to combine. Serve salmon with extra chilli on top if desired. Drizzle any extra dressing over salmon.

Tips: Salmon is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids and protein. Omega-3 is essential for good health and cannot be made within the body so needs to be consumed in your diet. When eaten in place of saturated fats, omega-3 helps maintain heart health and may reduce cholesterol levels.
