Seared salmon with lentil salad

15 minutes (10 minutes)
Serves 4
    4 x 120g salmon fillets, skin on
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to season
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • Lemon wedges, to serve
  • *Lentil salad:*
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 400g can no-added salt lentils, rinsed and drained
  • 250g punnet cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 Lebanese cucumbers, quartered lengthways, chopped
  • 120g baby spinach leaves
To make Lentil salad, whisk vinegar, oil and mustard in a large salad bowl.
Add lentils, tomatoes, cucumber and spinach. Season with pepper and toss
well. Cover and refrigerate while cooking salmon.

Place the salmon, skin-side up on a chopping board and pat dry with paper
towel. This helps keep the skin crisp (cooking the salmon with the skin on
holds it together while cooking and helps it stay moist).

Season salmon with pepper. Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a
medium-high heat. Add salmon, skin-side down. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or
until skin is well browned. Turn salmon and cook other side for 2 minutes,
or until cooked to your liking (salmon is best served medium ??? still a
little pink in the centre to retain it???s soft moist texture).

Divide salad and salmon onto serving plates. Serve with lemon.
