Ingredients

    1 tablespoon dried oregano

    1 tablespoon sweet paprika

    3 garlic cloves, crushed

    1/4 cup (60ml) extra virgin olive oil

    1kg piece skinless salmon fillet

    2 tablespoons La Fe Vegetable Oil 

    FOR PAPAYA MOJO 

    1/4 cup (60ml) extra virgin olive oil

    1 small red onion, thinly sliced

    1 papaya, cut into cubes

    2 cups La Fe Black Beans 

    1 bunch coriander, leaves roughly chopped, plus extra to serve

    Finely grated lime zest, lime halves to garnish and La Fe Lime Juice to serve

Directions

  • STEP ONE

    Preheat the oven to 180°C.

  • STEP TWO

    Place the oregano, paprika, garlic and olive oil in a bowl and season. Place the fish on a chopping board and rub the marinade into the topside of the fish.

  • STEP THREE

    Place the La Fe vegetable oil in a flameproof, non-stick roasting pan over high heat. Warm for 1-2 minutes until the oil is smoking, then add the fish, marinated- side down, and cook for 5-6 minutes until the flesh has blackened. Transfer to the oven, then bake for 10 minutes or until just cooked, but still a little rare in the centre.

  • STEP FOUR

    Meanwhile, for the papaya mojo, place all the ingredients in a bowl and season, then toss to combine. Set aside.

  • STEP FIVE

    Invert the fish onto a platter and top with papaya mojo. Serve with extra coriander leaves and lime halves.
