Step 2: Prepare the barbecue

If you plan to use a charcoal barbecue, light it 30-45 minutes before you cook and wait until the charcoal has turned white and there are no more flames. If you are using an electric barbecue, turn to high and leave for 20 minutes to heat up.

Step 3: Make the paprika tomatoes

Into the saucepan add the tomatoes, chilli, garlic, paprika and salt. Stir together well and bring to the boil. Using the spoon, break up the tomatoes and turn down the heat for 20-30 minutes and allow to simmer until the tomatoes are almost dry. Pour in the oil, stir and remove from heat.

Step 4: Marinate the salmon

Place the salmon fillets into the bowl and add the paprika, cayenne pepper and the chopped coriander. Season well with salt and drizzle over with oil. Using your hands to mix, make sure that the fillets are covered.

Step 5: Barbecue the salmon

Cook the fillets on the barbecue for 3 minutes on each side then remove.

Step 6: Serve and garnish

Transfer the salmon fillets to serving plates and spoon over a couple of the paprika tomatoes. Garnish with chilli and a sprig of coriander.
