Remove the skin from the salmon fillets, if wished.

Heat the oil in a large frying pan and cook the onion for 3-4 minutes. Add the cumin and paprika and fry gently for about 20-30 seconds.

Stir in the tomatoes, oranges, stock powder and sultanas. Cook for 5 minutes, then add the spinach and stir it in as the leaves wilt.
