  1. Bring half a large steamer to the boil, tip the potatoes into the water, then lay the salmon fillets, skin-side down, in the steamer basket. Cover and cook for 6-8 mins until the salmon is cooked through, then remove and set aside. Continue to cook the potatoes for another 5-8 mins until tender, adding the beans for the final couple of mins. Drain the veg, then tip into a large bowl.

  2. Add the olives and tomatoes to the potatoes and beans, then gently flake in chunks of the cooked salmon, discarding the skin. Whisk together the garlic, lemon and oil with some seasoning, and loosen with a few drops of water. Pour the dressing over the salad, toss well, and serve.

I make this recipe often - it is really good and always goes down well when we have friends round for a meal. I use plenty of garlic & lemon juice in the dressing and for seasoning, I use Vegeta (don´t know if you can buy this in the UK - I live in Germany) otherwise Fondor could be used as an alternative. Really a great recipe with mediteranean flavour.

A nice variation on the classic Nicoise. The sundried tomatoes added some good flavour to this. Because I had a tied budget that day I decided to use canned salmon... believe me not.a.good.idea.... Next time it will definitely be fresh salmon. We will eat beans on toast the next day.

The dressing on the vegetables was lovely and the olives and sundried tomatoes added good colour.

In the magazine I think 200g of green beans are used. This recipe is nice but I added a little more flavour by giving the salmon a wholegrain mustard crumb crust on one side and adding a little wholegrain mustard to the dressing.
