Juice of 2 limes
15ml/1tbsp olive oil
2 heaped tsp. coarse grain mustard

1. Place the salmon fillets in a non-metallic dish. Make a sauce by mixing together the lime-juice, olive oil, mustard, garlic and seasoning.

2. Pour the sauce over the salmon, turning to coat. If marinating, cover and leave in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
