Method

  1. Put the salmon in a microwave-proof dish, cover with cling film, then cook on High for 3½-4 mins until the salmon is just cooked. Peel the skin away and flake into large chunks.
  2. Toss together the watercress, chickpeas, fennel and onion, then arrange on a large platter. Zest one of the oranges, cut away the skin and pith from both fruit, then segment them both. Squeeze the juice from the middles of the oranges into a bowl and mix 2 tbsp of it with the yogurt, dill, zest and seasoning.
  3. Scatter salmon over the salad, then serve drizzled with the creamy orange dressing.

Not fussed on fennel and other half not keen on chick peas so left both out and used Asparagus (British of course), cooked and sliced into 2cm pieces. It was simply amazing! Orange goes so well with Salmon. Most importantly O H gave it the thumbs up so it's now become a regular.

I didn't stick to the exact quantities so maybe I didn't get the best out of this but i found it a bit bland. I think it needs a fair bit of dill and lots of the dressing. I also added some toasted pine nuts which was nice.

This was a good summer dish. The salad was light but filling with the addition of the chickpeas. I couldn't get any fennel so left that out, but it was still very tasty.

This dish got me started on salmon. I had always avoided it as I thought I hated it but this dish was simple to make and full of flavour. The combination of raw fennel with the orange and watercress is sensational. I personally found one orange was plenty. Even the kids liked it!
