  • 2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce
  • 1 green and 1 red chili, deseeded and thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger

  1. Step 1 Marinate the salmon.

    Put the salmon fillets into a shallow non-metallic dish. Mix together the sesame oil, soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, chilies, ginger, lime zest and lime juice. Pour over the salmon, then cover and leave to marinate for at least 20 minutes.

    Grill for 5-6 minutes, add the tomato bunches and grill for 2-3 minutes more. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper.

  3. Step 3 Serve and enjoy!

    Serve, scattered with chopped fresh chives or flat leaf parsley, with lime wedges on the side. Enjoy!
