BBQ Salmon with Summer Salsa

I just love using ingredients that are all about Summer. Cooking salmon on a BBQ adds a lovely summer flare to a beautiful piece of fish. Serve with a salsa made from Summer inspired ingredients such as mango, avocado and fresh herbs for a fresh, flavoursome and colourful meal. I love this meal for lunch or dinner and also for when entertaining friends. 

This really is such a simple meal to prepare, taking no time at all but full of colour and flavour.
