  • 500 g fresh or frozen salmon (4 medium skinless fillets), thawed (if frozen) and chopped into bite-size pieces
  • 2 tbsp chipotle paste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Olive oil for frying
  • Green onions for garnishing (optional), chopped


  • Combine the chipotle paste, olive oil, and lemon juice in a small mixing bowl and set aside.
  • Cut the salmon into cubes (I prefer them to be a little bit bigger than bite-size) and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Set aside.
  • Heat a non-stick skillet over a medium-high heat and add some olive oil.
  • Pour the chipotle mixture over the salmon cubes and mix everything so all the salmon is covered in the marinade.
  • When the skillet is smoking hot, add the salmon cubes and cook on each side for 4 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Serve warm topped with some chopped green onions and a side dish of your choice.
