  • 4 salmon fillets (approximately 520g/1lb 3oz)
  • 1 tsp sea salt flakes
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • ½ red pepper, seeds removed, sliced
  • ½ carrot, julienned (cut into thin strips)
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 4 tbsp mango chutney
  • squeeze lemon juice
  • ½ Scotch bonnet chili, seeds removed, sliced


  1. Rub the salmon with salt, black pepper, herbs, and cayenne.

  2. After all the ingredients above are mixed together, set aside in the fridge to marinate for at least 1 hour.

  3. Melt the butter in a frying pan, preferably a large frying pan, over medium heat. Add the salmon and cook on both sides until cooked through and browned.

  4. Remove from the pan and set aside. Add the onion, garlic, red pepper, carrot, and thyme and cook until the vegetables are caramelized.

  5. Remove the vegetables and add the mango chutney, 100ml water, and lemon juice to the pan. Cook until a thick sauce is formed. Add the vegetables back to the pan along with the salmon and simmer for 5 minutes, basting the salmon in the sauce.

  6. Serve immediately.
