peppers, fresh mint and fresh cilantro, and tossing together.
Preheat a largish skillet on medium heat for 2 minutes. Next rub the
lemon juice, salt and pepper into salmon to season it.
Place the salmon in the hot skillet for 2-3 minutes to sear and then turn it
over and cook the other side for a further 2-3 minutes.
