This dish is a lovely combination of fresh zingy flavours and nice textures. The recipe suggests grilling the salmon but it could be steamed or baked. This is best served hot but it could be served cold so any left overs are great for a packed lunch the next day. This is a gluten and dairy free dish and would be suitable for a detox diet.
