Spring salmon with minty veg

Spring salmon with minty veg

An easy-to-prepare healthy meal bursting with a springtime herby freshness


750g small new potato, thickly sliced

750g frozen pea and beans

3 tbsp olive oil

Zest and juice of 1 lemon

Small pack mint, leaves only

4 salmon fillets about 140g each


Boil the potatoes in a large pan for 4 mins. Tip in the peas and beans, bring back up to a boil, then carry on cooking for another 3 mins until the potatoes and beans are tender. Whizz the olive oil, lemon zest and juice and mint in a blender to make a dressing(or finely chop the mint and whisk into the oil and lemon).

Put the salmon in a microwave-proof dish, season, then pour the dressing over. Cover with cling film, pierce, then microwave on High for 4-5 mins until cooked through. Drain the veg, then mix with the hot dressing and cooking juices from the fish. Serve the fish on top of the vegetables.
