Pinch of Yum's BBQ Salmon Bowl with Mango Avocado Salsa

I love the Pinch of Yum website. Every time I visit I never fail to find something I have to try and the photography is gorgeous; vibrant and colourful with a distinctive style.

Pinch of Yum has blogging and photography tips, which is how I came across it in the first place, but it’s the recipes and writing that keep me coming back. The site’s updated a lot so there’s always something new.

I’m pretty sure my jaw actually dropped when I saw BBQ salmon bowl with mango avocado salsa as it’s my idea of food heaven. I’ve been cooking it over and over and our kitchen is never without mangos or avocados ripening and waiting to be turned into an amazing salsa.

I make a few tiny tweaks:

  • I use honey instead of brown sugar in the spice rub because my brown sugar is gritty.
  • I pan fry the salmon, removing the skin and frying it separately as I can't let this delicious ingredient go to waste (thank you, Jamie Oliver).

The whole recipe takes no more than 20 minutes to cook and cold leftovers make the BEST packed lunch. I should say that it’s a good idea to eat this outside of the office as the smell of onions permeated every inch of the fairly small office I work in. I thought the salmon would be the issue (yes, I've taken fish into the office) but I’ve discovered that room temperature fish is undetectable. As soon as you stick it in the microwave, though, beware the wrath of your colleagues.
