  1. Boil the potatoes in a large pan for 4 mins. Tip in the peas and beans, bring back up to a boil, then carry on cooking for another 3 mins until the potatoes and beans are tender. Whizz the olive oil, lemon zest and juice and mint in a blender to make a dressing(or finely chop the mint and whisk into the oil and lemon).

  2. Put the salmon in a microwave-proof dish, season, then pour the dressing over. Cover with cling film, pierce, then microwave on High for 4-5 mins until cooked through. Drain the veg, then mix with the hot dressing and cooking juices from the fish. Serve the fish on top of the vegetables.

Simple but tasty. Also works very well with buttery mash in place of new potatoes.

Really just used the microwave instructions with the dressing. Couldn't be simpler or quicker. Served with cauliflower and broccoli so v v healthy!

What this recipe lacks in finesse is made up for in ease of preparation, value for money and being extremely healthy.

Brilliant quick, healthy and simple recipe enjoyed by whole family. I used half a lemon and added broccoli and served with corn on the cob too. Good for weaning babies too.

This is really yummy. I couldn't believe so few ingredients could make something so delicious! I baked the salmon in a foil parcel for 10 mins and added tenderstem broccoli to the veg. It was the nicest and freshest salmon meal I've had in ages. I will definitely make it again.

Bland, tasteless and a waste of good ingredients. Won't be making again.
