This lively steamed salmon recipe boasts flavor and nutrition - a feel-good winner for weeknights. Another bonus is that it can be whipped up in a hurry – the most time consuming effort is probably the salsa, which can be made in advance and kept in the fridge. The mango and pineapple salsa is truly the star of this dish – the not-so-secret sauce – adding sweetness and acidity, playing off the heat of fresh chilli to brighten the whole dish. Serve with rice and garnish with coriander, et voilá!
