  1. Brush the salmon fillets with the olive oil, sprinkle over the jerk seasoning and gently rub into the salmon. Season to taste. Cover and chill to marinade while you prepare the slaw.
  2. To make the slaw, put the mango, cabbage, fennel, spring onions and carrot into a large bowl and toss well to mix. Combine the yogurt with the mustard, season to taste, and then stir through the slaw.
