PAN-FRIED SALMONAND SPINACH SALAD Serves 4–5 Ready in: 30 minutes Prep time: 15 minutes Cook time: 15 minutes Spinach salad 800gwaxy baby potatoes, scrubbed 200g green beans 1 punnet cherry tomatoes 1 ⁄2 telegraph cucumber 4–5 handfuls baby spinach leaves Dressing 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 2-3 tablespoons mayonnaise Juice of 1 ⁄2 a lemon 3 tablespoons chopped parsley Salmon 600g boneless salmon fillets, cut into 4-5 pieces 1 ⁄2 a lemon, cut into wedges, to serve Bring a large pot of saltedwater to the boil. Preheat barbecue hot plate to high (if using). Cut potatoes into halves or quarters so they are all roughly the same size. Cook in pot of boilingwater until tender, 12–15 minutes. Trim green beans and cut in half. Add beans to pot for the last 1–2 minutes of cook time. While potatoes cook, prepare the rest of the meal. Cut cherry tomatoes in half; slice cucumber in half lengthways then thinly slice; in a small bowl,mix all dressing ingredients together and set aside. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large fry-pan on medium to high heat (or use barbecue hot plate). Pat salmon dry with paper towels, remove any remaining scales or pin bones and season with salt. Cook salmon, skin side down, until skin is crispy, 2–3 minutes. Flip salmon over and cook a further 1–2 minutes until just cooked through (salmon is best cooked medium), or until cooked to your liking. Drain potatoes and toss with vegetables and dressing. To serve, divide salad and salmon between plates and squeeze over lemon juice just before serving, (if desired). ❚ Recipe courtesy ofMyFood Bag, see myfoodbag.co.nz stuff.co.nz Pan-fried salmon and spinach is great for a summer night and only takes 30 minutes to make.
