Grilled salmon and Puy lentil salad

step by step

  • 1Preheat the grill to high. Bring a medium pan of water to the boil and cook the broccoli for 3-4 minutes then drain and refresh under cold water.
  • 2Put the salmon fillets on a piece of foil on a baking tray. Brush with half of the olive oil and sprinkle with pepper. Grill for 8-10 minutes until golden and just cooked through.
  • Serve with a leafy salad on the side, if you like
  • 3Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan and cook the onion for 5-6 minutes until softened. Tip in the lentils and stir with the onion and cook for a few minutes, then add the broccoli and toss together well. Remove from the heat and stir in the red pepper strips and the balsamic glaze. Season with a little salt and ground black pepper.
  • 4Spoon the lentils onto plates and top with the cooked salmon. Serve with extra balsamic glaze and a salad, if you like.
