Jamaican Spiced Salmon with Corn & Pineapple Salad

Well….even though I didn’t get to as many Activate exercise classes as I’d initially intended….I did attend a cooking class run by Callum Hann – 2010 Master Chef runner-up. To be honest….I knew he must have come from one of those shows – just not sure which one…..but plenty of the ladies there knew who he was…hehe!!! We made a three course meal – today I will share the main which is full of flavours. We also received a cook book…so you might see some more of his recipes. If your ever down in Adelaide….stop into “Sprout – it starts in the kitchen”. This is Callum’s cooking school which will be up & running soon.

Ingredients: (serves 4)

  • 4x 150g salmon fillets
  • 1Tbls rice bran/canola oil (recipe says this…though I LOVE coconut oil!!)
  • 1/3 pineapple, skin & core removed, diced
  • 3 spring onions, finely sliced on an angle
  • 1/2 punnet cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 Lebanese cucumber, deseeded, diced
  • 2 cobs of corn, kernels removed
  • 1/2 bunch coriander, leaves picked
  • 1 lime/lemon
  • Chilli (optional)

Jamaican Rub:

  • 2 tsp allspice
  • 4 tsp ground corriander
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp flake salt


  • To make the Jamaican rub stir all ingredients together in a bowl.
  • Rub the salmon with Jamaican rub on all sides except the skin. Heat a non stick frying pan over high-medium heat with oil. Add the salmon, skin side down & hold firmly in the pan for 10 sec to ensure flat crispy skin. Cook for 2-3 mins each side, or until done to your liking. Salmon is great served medium, but cook it all the way through if that’s your preference.
  • Once salmon is cooked, place to the side & add the corn to the pan the salmon was cooked in. Cook for 2-3 mins or until corn is golden & tender.
  • Combine pineapple, spring onions, cherry tomatoes, cucumber & coriander leaves in a bowl, adding the cooked corn kernels as well. Halve the lime, then squeeze juice over the salad & stir to combine.
  • Serve salmon immediately with pineapple salad.
Another great recipe for you to try…care of Callum Hann…& the Activate Program!!
