Mexican ancho chillies are known for their smoky, slightly sweet almost dried fruit flavour rather than their heat. While used in plenty of classic Mexican dishes such as Chile con carne, salsas and sauces for enchiladas and more, we’ve chosen to make an ancho chile based marinade for salmon to go with our style of spicy rice along which is all topped with a spicy, colourful and summery mango and pineapple salsa.

Double the avocado

Kudrat - May 20, 2019

A bit too heavy on the spices

Amanda - May 10, 2019

Just had this again after the winter break. I love it so much!!

Patrycja - May 10, 2019

Didnt like a mango style salad though salmon was amazing

Sarah - May 09, 2019

The rice was really tasty - we used peas instead of pepper. The salmon tasted lovely (even though I'm not usually a big fan of salmon) and the salsa was so delicious. It worked really well all together, and it was so easy to cook.

Sam - May 08, 2019

Perhaps it was the quality of fish I bought but it was very delicious. Lovely flavours in the rice too.

Eunice - May 03, 2019

Loved the taste and the mango side is beautiful

Martin - May 03, 2019

Some lovely fresh flavours here and very colourful to boot.

Tim - Apr 29, 2019

Very good - not the biggest fan of avocado but the salsa worked really well. Rice was good and the salmon was delicious. Definitely would have this one again.

Gillian - Apr 29, 2019

Excellent! Added extra pineapple, lime and mango to the salsa and cooked the rice separately then added the spicy rice seasoning. I will be ordering this again!

Alison - Apr 25, 2019

Ordered several times its delicious

Maggie - Apr 24, 2019

Loved the salsa with the salmon

Nicola - Apr 23, 2019

Delicious! I didn’t use avo as it upsets my stomach but used pineapple, mango and red onion for the salsa. It is a lovely sweet contrast to the spiciness of the salmon and rice.

Kevin - Apr 19, 2019

Needed a little less glaze but a really good recipe. Will buy again

Sue - Apr 17, 2019

Spicy, wasn’t sure about the combination of mango, avocado etc, but it was fantastic, very tasty. Great dish.

Kirsty - Apr 17, 2019


Berenice - Apr 15, 2019

Joanna - Mar 30, 2019

Strange combination

Sara - Mar 25, 2019

Very tasty and the salsa just gave the dish the crunch and sweetness it needed from the spicyness

Beauleiu - Mar 20, 2019

Weren’t bad fish was delicious don’t know if I’d do it again thou

Melanie - Mar 19, 2019

Tasted lovely, the tip to buy a prepared fruit was a great time saver. Loved it!

Naomi - Mar 13, 2019

Salsa is quite spicy so I made a lemon mayonnaise to go with it!

Ellie - Mar 11, 2019

I made it with a normal onion and tomato salsa instead and it was really yummy! Lovely flavour on the salmon

Shona - Mar 08, 2019

Very good

Emma - Feb 26, 2019

I add cherry tomatoes, cucumber and a squeeze of lime to the salsa - delicious

Nadine - Feb 24, 2019

Really lovely flavours, so simple to prepare, definitely need to use a ripe mango, and would use a bit less onion next time but that's personal preference.

Mariam - Feb 24, 2019

Would have tasted better if there was more ancho glaze to spice the salmon and the spicy rice paste needed more seasoning.

sue - Feb 24, 2019

Love the spicy flavours

Linda - Feb 14, 2019

Salsa was lacking something

Julie - Feb 13, 2019

Enjoyed it

Anna - Feb 10, 2019

Rice spices overpowered the fish spices

Joan - Feb 04, 2019


Manishaa - Feb 03, 2019

Loved the flavours

Julie - Feb 02, 2019

A taste sensation. Love,love, love the salsa accompaniment.

Kirstie - Feb 01, 2019

Absolutely gorgeous, so fresh and vibrant. Spicy, yes, but I used way more mango and avocado than the salsa called for, so it is as the calming influence. A spoonful of plain yogurt or sour cream would be a perfect added extra next time.

Marian - Jan 25, 2019

Not for me

Eve - Jan 23, 2019

Great meal. We reduced the amount of onion as I'm not too keen on raw onion and also added lime to the salsa.

Lara - Jan 15, 2019

The cool, sweetness of the fruit complemented the salmon surprisingly well.

Helen - Jan 13, 2019

Interesting combo! Love the salsa!

Aaron - Jan 10, 2019

Flavours a bit too strong. Salmon was lost in to much spice

Steve - Dec 16, 2018

Really nice. The rub on the salmon has a nice spice flavour but was a little sweet too so really set off the fruit salsa

Suzie - Dec 05, 2018


Emily - Dec 02, 2018

Bit spice, put less salsa seasoning on next time

Natasha - Dec 02, 2018

salsa is very spicy, very! careful

Julie - Nov 28, 2018

Super easy and tasty!!
