Step 1

Place all ingredients for the salmon in a large shallow bowl and mix gently to evenly coat the salmon with the spices. Marinate in the fridge for 15 mins.

Step 2

Heat oil on a grill pan on medium-high. Cook salmon for 2-3mins each side or to your liking. Remove from heat and set aside.

Step 3

Heat oil in a large frying pan or wok on medium. Add garlic, onion and chilli. Sauté for a few minutes until the onion starts to caramelise.

Step 4

Add the cooked rice, oregano, lime zest, lime juice and salt. Mix well and cook for a few mins until heated through. Remove from heat and stir in the coriander.

Step 5

Heat a grill pan on high. Place pineapple slices on the hot pan and brush with melted butter. Cook each side for 3-4 mins, basting with melted butter until starting to char and turn golden. Remove from heat and set aside.

Step 6

Place cooked black beans, paprika, lime juice, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Mix well. Shuck the corn cobs.

Step 7

Grill the corn on an open fire for a couple of minutes until it starts charring. Alternatively, place on a barbecue or oven grill and cook until starting to brown. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Using a sharp knife or corn stripper, remove the kernels into a bowl and set aside.

Step 8

Take 4 shallow rimmed bowls (approximately 20cm). Place 2 lettuce leaves in each bowl. Place a pineapple slice over the lettuce in each bowl. Divide the rice equally between the bowls. Add black beans and charred corn. Place a salmon fillet over the bed of rice, corn and beans. Top with green pepper, avocado, salsa and hot chilli sauce. Garnish with lime wedges and micro herbs.
