Salmon with Spicy Lentils for Youthful Ageing
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 8 minutes
Yield: 2 Servings
- 2 tsp curry paste
- 410g tin green lentils, drained and rinsed
- 2 salmon fillets (approx 175g each)
- 3 tbsp olive oil - juice of 1 lemon
- 2 large handfuls of spinach

  • Heat a large, lidded shallow pan over a medium heat. Tip in the curry paste and fry briefly, stirring constantly, until sizzling and aromatic. Add the lentils with about a quarter of a can of water and season. Heat until simmering then lay salmon on top, skin side up.Cover and leave salmon to cook for 6-8 minutes until it feels firm when prodded.
  • While the salmon is cooking, make the dressing. Mix together the olive oil and lemon juice and season well. When salmon is cooked lift it out of the pan with a fish slice and set aside. Turn the heat up, stir in the spinach and a third of the dressing and cook until the spinach has just wilted. Spoon the lentils and spinach onto two plates then sit the salmon on top. Drizzle over the remaining dressing and serve.
  • This is great with a crisp green salad topped with shavings of parmesan, croutons and a little balsamic vinegar…
