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.

Our 20 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Get the rice on

    First, heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6.

    Heat some oil in a non-stick, lidded saucepan over medium heat, fry half of the red onion for 3 mins. 

    Add the peppers and the rice and fry for 2 mins.

    Add the SPICY RICE PASTE, a pinch of salt, and a splash of water to help mix it in, then fry for 2 mins.

    Mix in 400ml water. Bring it to the boil then reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook for 10-12 mins.

  • 2.

    Prepare the salmon

    Sprinkle the ANCHO CHILLI GLAZE over the salmon fillets and press it into the tops and sides.

    Put the fillets on a lined baking tray and cook in the oven for 8-10 mins.

  • 3.

    While the rice and the salmon are cooking, make the salsa

    Mix the rest of the red onion with the mango and avocado (and pineapple, optional) in a bowl with the SALSA SEASONING.

Salmon was so tasty with ancho glaze and I loved the fiery kick off the mango and avocado salsa. Such a unique blend of flavours that I never would have thought of if it hadn't been for Simply Cook. Thank you!

Lyndsey - Sep 09, 2019

Beautiful flavour

Haley - Sep 03, 2019

Salmon was beautiful, loved the rice, however, the fruity salsa was simply too spicy to be enjoyable; I’d say maybe a 2 spice rating for that as opposed to the 1! In saying that, I’d definitely order it again and just won’t use the salsa seasoning

Nikki - Sep 01, 2019

We love this recipe, easy to make and very tasty Family favourite

Lynne - Aug 28, 2019

I've cooked this twice now and live it but the second time the glaze tasted gritty.

Cooked with chicken instead of Salmon and popped in wraps! Was delish!!

Annabel - Aug 19, 2019

All the family loved this, even the fussy 7 yr old.

Everyone loved this. The salsa was a revelation and even fussy, non-fruit-eating hubby was happy to gobble it up.

Mike - Aug 02, 2019

Worst one so far, thought the salsa was awful, salmon was OK, rice was so so, wouldn't get again.

Emma - Jul 29, 2019

One of the best recipes yet. Really enjoyed by everyone, particularly the salsa which was different enough to a real interest to the meal.
