Time for another little recipe, to give you some healthy meal time inspiration!

Blacken the whole garlic and the onion slices on all sides in a large, dry non-stick frying pan.
Remove, cool briefly, then peel the garlic cloves.
Soak the chilli in boiling water for 15 mins, drain, then place in a blender with the sugar, cider vinegar, garlic, onion and some salt and pepper.
Whizz to a smooth sauce.
Heat the grill.
Brush each salmon fillet liberally with the sauce and save any remaining.
Grill for 8 mins.
Meanwhile, mix the lime zest with the crème fraîche.
Serve the fish with extra chilli sauce, a dollop of the crème fraîche and lime wedges for squeezing over.
Sprinkle with coriander, if you like, and serve with green beans or rice and a salad.
