Method

  1. Turn the grill to high and line a baking tray with foil. Mix the lemon zest and juice, mustard and honey. Put the salmon on the tray, brush with a little of the dressing, then grill for 5-7 mins – there is no need to turn the salmon over until it flakes easily when tested with a knife.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a wok and cook the spring onions and beetroot. Tip in the lentils with 4 tbsp water, cover the pan and cook for 2 mins to heat through. Tip into a bowl and toss with the remaining dressing, the basil and rocket. Serve with the salmon.

Beetroot was one of my least favourite foods but this recipe has made me reconsider. Have now made this three times, easy to prepare and very tasty. Next time I'll try cooking lentils myself like alisonpj, although the pre-cooked packs are very handy for quick preparation when you get in from work.

I followed this recipe to the letter and it was extremely tasty. The zinginess of the dressing is a great contrast to the earthiness of the lentils, beetroot and salmon. We will certainly be making this again!

Really loved this recipe, very fresh taste to the salmon. I cooked Puy lentils for 25 mins using a chicken stock cube, as I couldn't find the pre cooked variety, this worked very well.
