Chilli lemon salmon

Chilli lemon salmon is a great dish when you fancy something light, healthy and quick.

I love fish. Not only because of its countless health benefits, but also because of its great taste. Easy to cook, you get your meal ready very quickly. And salmon is by far my favourite type of fish. For a chilli kick, l used red chilli pepper and squeezed half of a lemon to give it a sharp taste, and the flavours marry so well. The addition of dill gives a great final touch. There is no happier combination than lemon, dill and salmon. You could, of course, not use them together, but then you would miss such a divine taste. You can serve it with any salad or pulses, potatoes would also be great.

    I love that you added a chile pepper! So many people are scared of them!!! I also love using cayenne flakes.
