Salmon Niçoise Salad

Nov 29, 2022 | Featured Articles, Main, Recipes, Starter

This is a delicious protein-packed salad full of beneficial omega-3 anti-inflammatory fats, using walnut oil in the dressing along with herbs and capers to further boost your healthy fat intake.

Bring a large steamer to the boil, tip the potatoes into the water then lay the fish fillets, skin-side down, in the steamer basket. Cover and cook for 6-8 mins, until the fish is cooked through, then remove and set aside. 

Blanch the beans for 1-2 minutes then drain. 

Place the mixed leaves in a large bowl and toss in the potatoes, cucumber, capers and beans. Scatter over the olives and tomatoes. 

Flake the fish into large chunks, discarding the skin, and add to the salad with the egg. 

Whisk all the ingredients for the dressing together and season to taste. Drizzle over the salad just before serving.
