For the salmon

  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 4 salmon fillets

For the slaw

  • 2 large carrots

Grate the ginger and garlic and mix in a bowl with the soy sauce and honey.

Place the salmon in a bowl and coat in the marinade for 1 hour or, for maximum flavour, place in the fridge overnight.

Grate the carrot, red and white cabbages, and thinly slice the radishes and red pepper. Add to a bowl with the juice and zest of one lime and natural yoghurt.
