  1. Season the salmon, then rub with oil. Mix the dressing ingredients together. Halve, stone, peel and slice the avocados. Halve and quarter the cucumber lengthways, then cut into slices. Divide salad, avocado and cucumber between four plates, then drizzle with half the dressing.

  2. Heat a non-stick pan. Add the salmon and fry for 3-4 mins on each side until crisp but still moist inside. Put a salmon fillet on top of each salad and drizzle over the remaining dressing. Serve warm.

Ok, but let down by the dressing, which isn't great. Maybe I misinterpreted "grated zest 1 and juice o limes" wrongly. If it's meant to have the juice of more than 1 lime, I'd be concerned. Still, it's caused me to be introduced to Waitrose lightly smoked salmon fillets on the fish counter, and it's the best fish I've ever eaten!

This was a very easy recipe to do - great for a midweek evening. Loved the dressing! I served with new Jersey Royals, which went well with it. We decided collectively on the rating - my husband downgraded it because he said that cucumber is rather bland, but I thought it was fine, especially as the dressing itself is so tasty.

Should use Avocado oil for cooking the Salmon... and for the dressing.
