Preheat the oven to 200°C.

Coat a baking tray lightly with cooking spray and place the salmon fillet(s) on it.

Place the atchar, lemon juice, coriander, olive oil and water in a food processor or blender and mix to create a slightly chunky paste.

Spread the atchar over fish and season.

Bake for 10 to 20 minutes, depending on size and thickness of fillet(s), or until the salmon is just cooked.

Delicious things to add:

* Local salmon trout will work just as well.
