The Rio Olympics have taken over our TVs for the last couple of weeks, leaving millions of people around the world inspired to get fit and start exercising.

However, if you prefer your hobbies to take place in the kitchen but have still been fascinated by the Games and its host location, Brazil, we’ve found some delicious traditional salmon recipes from the South American country for you to try. 

Salmon Moqueca

One of Brazil’s most famous dishes is moqueca, a creamy seafood stew, and this version replaces prawns with fresh Scottish salmon for a slightly British take on the recipe. 

To make this marinade the fish with lime juice, paprika and cumin. Then layer this with sliced peppers, tomatoes and onions in a large oven-proof dish. Keep going until the ingredients are used up, then top with fresh coriander, olive oil and seasoning. Finish by pouring coconut milk over the top and cook for up to an hour. 

Serve with rice and more scatterings of fresh coriander for a truly delicious summery dish. 

Grilled salmon with a Brazilian rub

Brazil is well-known for its barbecued meats served on long skewers at churrascaria restaurants. However, they also love their grilled fish as well, and this dish brings out some delicate flavours of the salmon with its marinade of lemon juice, orange juice, brown sugar, chilli powder, garlic and butter. 

Once the fillets have been rubbed well and left to soak for 20 minutes, bake them in an oven or on a barbecue, making sure not to overcook them. 

This is a great new way to serve salmon that you’ll cook time and time again. 

Salmon with mango sauce

For a tropical touch to your Brazilian meal, why not cook this recipe of salmon fillets with mango sauce and coconut rice.

Make the sauce using onion, dark brown sugar, mango pulp, lime juice, Greek yoghurt, coriander and ground pepper. Then simply bake a seasoned fillet of salmon until cooked. 

Serve with rice that has been cooked in coconut milk and coconut flakes and you’ll be able to enjoy a really refreshing Brazilian dish while watching the 2016 Olympic Games.
