Ingredients 1 piece thick fresh salmon, skin on
1½ tbsp olive oil
½ tbsp garlic, crushed
1 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tsp whole grain mustard
¼ tsp pepper
About 150 g green beans, cut
Zest of ½ small lemon
1 tbsp pine nuts
125 g brown rice (pre-cooked is OK), cooked
Method For the salmon
Preheat the oven to 220°/200° fan forced, and put some baking paper on a baking tin.
Brush the salmon, skin side down, with ½ tbsp of the oil and put the salmon on the baking paper.
Mix the garlic and salt into a paste with a fork or knife, and combine this in a small bowl with the mayonnaise, mustard and a bit of the pepper.
Spread this mixture on top of the salmon.
Bake the salmon for about 7 - 8 minutes or until it flakes easily with a fork - do NOT overcook.
For the rice and beans
Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a large pan and add the beans, lemon zest, pine nuts and a bit of pepper.
Cook, stirring until the beans are JUST tender - about 4 minutes.
Reduce the heat to medium and add the rice and cook for about a minute or two.
Serve the salmon on top of the bean pilaf - a healthy and nourishing meal!
