1: Combine all the marinade ingredients in a flat container (around 15 x 22cm oblong) that has a lid.

2: Place salmon into container and cover well with marinade. Put lid on and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or longer if possible.

3: Turn salmon over once during this time and coat well with marinade.

4: Fry salmon in a large non-stick frypan that has been generously coated with cooking spray on a medium heat to avoid burning. Cook both sides for 5 minutes depending on thickness of salmon pieces and cook to your liking.

5: Remove onto dinner plates then pour the marinade into the pan and boil for 1–2 minutes to reduce the liquid slightly then pour sauce over salmon.

Dietitian's tip

Being a deep sea fish, salmon is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids. Increasing omega-3 fatty acids is associated with increasing the health of your heart. Recent studies have suggested that changing to a diet richer in omega-3 fatty acids decreases depression, reduces violent behaviour and increases attention span, but the mechanisms for the effects are still unclear.
