Method

  1. Get a steamer on to boil. Put the salmon fillets in the first tier and steam for 3 mins until the salmon has changed colour. Throw the asparagus spears in with the salmon and continue to steam for 4-5 mins until the asparagus is tender and the fish is cooked.
  2. While everything’s steaming, make a dressing by whisking together the olive oil, lemon juice and mustard. Tip the cannellini beans and spinach into a large bowl. When the asparagus is cooked scoop it into the bowl, then stir in the dressing. Divide the vegetables between two plates and sit the salmon on top.

Simple but nice. The salmon can also be fried in a pan.

I wanted to heat the cannellini beans so put them in the bottom of the steamer with some stock and then steamed the salmon & asparagus above it as per the recipe. The spinach wilted nicely when stirred through the drained beans and then I added the dressing and asparagus. Very tasty!

Really tasty and healthy! It was so quick and easy to make - it took me less than 10 minutes. I think this is going to become a regular post-gym dinner for me!

As I don't like spinach I used broccoli instead!
