Summer salmon salad

20120728-214403.jpg

Making lunch just for myself it’s really tempting to do some beans on toast, as it was Saturday I made this take on a nicoise (my favourite salad) in that it’s got fish and eggs in it. It’s really quick – the part that took me the longest was boiling the egg, so here’s how to make this in 10 minutes:

– put the egg on to boil (a hard boiled egg takes 10 minutes)
– season the salmon and place it skin side down in a hot pan – turn around when the skin easily comes away from the pan, this took 2-3 minutes
– in the meantime, put a handful of rocket leaves on a plate and add some olives, tomato, cucumber and a couple of sun dried tomatoes (I heart sun dried tomatoes)
– check the salmon, once you turn it over turn the heat to low, it should only need to cook for another 5mins or so
– make a dressing with 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp white wine vinegar, 1 tsp Dijon mustard, 1 tsp wholegrain mustard and a little dried tarragon
– once the egg is ready, peel and cut it into 6 segments and combine all ingredients

Healthy and tasty 🙂
