Recipe: citrus salmon salad

Main meal salads are the way forward once the weather has been cranked up to scorchio!


Serves 2


200g new potatoes

2 salmon fillets (skinless/boneless)

2 tbsp rapeseed oil

2.5cm piece of fresh ginger (peeled and grated)

½ red chilli (deseeded and chopped)

2 tsp lemongrass paste

2 tbsp clear honey

Juice of 1 lemon

Handful of fresh coriander

1 bag mixed salad leaves

60g cashew nuts

Cooking time

15 mins preparation, 15 mins cook time

How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C/Gas mark 6
  • Bring a large pan of boiling water to the boil and add new potatoes. Return to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes, or until just cooked through. Drain and set aside to cool. Once cooled, cut into halves.
  • Line a roasting tin with a sheet of Bacofoil non-stick, dull side up. Place the salmon in the tin and season well with salt and pepper. Cook in the oven for 15 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  • Make a dressing by whisking together the oil, ginger, chilli, lemongrass paste, coriander, honey and lemon juice. Break up the salmon fillets into bite-sized chunks and arrange on two plates with the salad leaves and new potatoes. Scatter over the nuts and spoon over the dressing.
