Method

 
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:

* Serve with spring onion-studded rice and steamed long-stem broccoli or green beans.

 Things you need to know:

* Atchar is an Indian condiment made with pickled vegetables or fruit marinated in oil, lemon juice and Indian spices. It can be used to marinate fish, chicken or meat or can be served as a condiment.

* Local salmon trout will work just as well.

Tip of the day

 
Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
