  1. Preheat the grill to high. Cook the potatoes in lightly salted boiling water for 15 minutes, or until tender.
  2. Whilst the potatoes are cooking, mix the lime juice, sugar, garlic, crushed chillies and the oil together. Season generously with salt and pepper. Brush 1 tsp of the mixture over each salmon fillet. Set the remaining dressing aside for use in the salsa.
  3. Grill the salmon for 4 minutes on each side, or until cooked through. Set aside and leave to rest.
  4. Drain the potatoes, toss with the margarine/butter and season with salt and pepper.
  5. To make the salsa, toss the rocket leaves, red onion, avocado, cherry tomatoes and pine nuts with the dressing. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Serve the grilled salmon with the buttered new potatoes and avocado salsa.
