1⁄4 cup mint leaves, finely chopped
1⁄3 cup coriander leaves, finely chopped

Step 1 To make salsa, cut pineapple into 1cm pieces (you’ll need about 1 cup of pineapple) and place into a medium bowl. Add mint, coriander, green onion, chilli and lime juice. Stir to combine and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
Step 2 Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Spray salmon with oil and season with sea salt and pepper. Place skin-side down in pan and cook for 2-3 minutes until skin is crisp. Turn and cook for 2-3 minutes until almost cooked through (or cook to your liking). Transfer to a plate, cover and stand for 2 minutes. Serve salmon with salsa, mixed salad leaves and steamed new potatoes.
