Method

  • STEP 1

    Cook the bulgur wheat following pack instructions. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the salmon fillets and cook for 3 mins on each side. Stir in the spring onions and cook for 1 min. Add lemon juice, honey, orange juice and zest to the pan and bubble for 1 min more to make a sauce.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, boil the green beans for 4 mins or until tender. Drain. Stir the bulgur wheat with a fork, mixing in the green beans, lemon zest and a little of the sauce. Serve the salmon on a bed of bulgur and beans, with the rest of the sauce spooned over.
