Quarter the cherry tomatoes. Destone, peel and roughly chop the mango. Scoop out the avocado and finely slice. Trim and finely slice the spring onions. Carefully cut the skin off the salmon and place it in a non-stick frying pan on a medium-high heat to crisp up on both sides. Pat the Cajun seasoning all over the salmon fillets, then fry for 5 minutes, turning to get them golden on each of their sides. Once the skin is crispy, move it to sit on top of the salmon.

Meanwhile, use tongs to toast the tortillas directly over the flame of your gas hob for 15 seconds, or use a hot pan. Sprinkle the mango, avocado and spring onions over the tortillas, then flake over the salmon and crack over the skin. Toss the tomatoes and the juice of 1 lime in the residual heat of the pan for 30 seconds, then spoon over the tortillas. Serve with lime wedges, for squeezing over.


– To make 4 soft tacos: mix 4 heaped tablespoons of self-raising flour with 4 tablespoons of cold water, a pinch of sea salt and a kiss of olive oil. Mix together with a fork, knead, then divide into 4 and roll out thinly on a flour-dusted surface. To cook, heat in a dry non-stick pan for 1 minute on each side, until lightly golden.

– Use a spoon that mirrors the size or shape of the avocado, ease the spoon edge in between the skin and flesh, then press the spoon against the skin and you’ll find that it just cups it out beautifully in one perfect piece.

– Avocado can discolour quickly, so a little trick is to add some acid, such as lemon, lime or orange, and squeeze a little juice over the top. It will season it nicely, but also protect it.

– If you can’t get hold of mango, use pineapple, grapes, strawberries, blueberries… Anything sweet and sour will work brilliantly.
