This is a fresh and spicy salmon salad, rich in flavour and packed with beneficial omega 3 fatty acids. 

This salmon salad has quite the kick; from the sweet and spicy red jalapenos and the flavoursome harissa paste. Harissa paste is a great go-to when you're looking to spice up your meats, most commonly made from roasted red peppers, chilli, garlic and a little olive oil with various seasonings. 

Tip: Try mixing 1 tsp of harissa paste with 2 tbsp of Greek yoghurt for a simple but delicious marinade for chicken and turkey, or as a spicy dip with baked sweet potato wedges.

You can add any extra vegetables to this salad should you wish, however, this basic recipe is a great place to start and very easy to make.
