Simple salmon salad

Many people don’t like cooking fish for fear of overcooking the fish or the smell. If you get a good quality fish then it shouldn’t smell fishy. This is another take on fish and chips crossed with salad.

Serves 4

4 fillets of salmon (about 150g per person or around just larger than your index and middle finger together)

4 baby courgettes cut into cm slithers,

200g green beans (cooked with the potatoes)

4 large handfuls mixed baby leaves,

3/4 cup frozen peas (defrosted)

1/2 tsp dried dill and mint (if using fresh 1 tbsp each)

2 tbsp fat-free yoghurt + 2 tbsp fat-free vinaigrette (i always use hellmans fat-free vinaigrette)

600g baby/salad potatoes, halved and boiled.

  1. Griddle the courgette until lightly charred and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile blend 1/4 peas, yoghurt, dill, mint, yoghurt and vinaigrette until smooth (adding a splash of water if you need to).
  3. grill the salmon skin side down for 3 minutes, flip and leave for a further 3 minutes.
  4. Lay a handful of mixed baby leaves on each plate, scatter over the remaining peas, green beans and potatoes.
  5. Place a salmon fillet on each plate and drizzles the pea puree salad dressing around the salmon

430 calories per serving. (average, depends on the size of your salmon etc)
