  1. Boil the potatoes for 15 mins until tender. Add the peas to the pan for the final 2 mins cooking, then drain together. Slice the potatoes thickly, then leave to cool.

  2. Meanwhile, fry the bacon in a non-stick pan for 5 mins until golden. Lift out, season the salmon, then fry for 3 mins on each side until golden and just cooked in the middle. You won’t need extra oil to cook the fish.

  3. Whisk the dressing ingredients together with seasoning and 1 tbsp water. Toss the veg together with the dressing and put onto plates, then break the salmon into big pieces and nestle into the salad with the bacon.

This was nice enough, but maybe I was just expecting it to be a bit better!

You shouldn't ever trust a recipe to give exact calorie values anyway, always work them out for yourself by weighing out the ingredients you use.

Went down very well for tea last night (omitting the bacon for veggy daughter). Daughter took leftovers for lunch today. Told to make it again which I am happy to do since it was so easy.

Unfortunatley this recipe was not a great success with my partner but I did enjoy it even though I am not that keen on beetroot.

very refreshing and tasty. however, the calorie content here is the same as in the magazine, which includes the smoothie. I would apprecite knowing the calorie content without the smoothie.
