O this time of year is full of people talking about eating healthily, New Years resolutions and how we should all be treating our bodies better. Well you aren’t going to be hearing any different from us, even with our love of pies and steak, we are 100% on a health kick and against some of our preconceptions, very much enjoying it.
We know you know, but we will tell you again - eating healthy doesn’t necessarily mean boring eating. We make ours exciting by doing a jig whilst trying to slice vegetables and nothing says fun like trying not to loose a finger does it?
We joke, we make our food delicious by using flavoursome ingredients with are packed full of all the nutrients and proteins you need to do the things you like to do. Fish is full of good things, vitamins, minerals and is a major source of Omega 3 fatty acids so is being served up regularly as part of our healthy diet. This recipe of Salmon Fillets, Lentils and Spinch is simple, easy and good for you as well as really filling.
Salmon Fillet on a bed on Puy Lentils & Spinach
130g of Puy Lentils
100g cherry tomatoes
1 clove of garlic
1 lemon (juice)
2 Salmon Fillets
Salt and Pepper
Oil for Frying
1. Put the lentil in a pan of boiling water, reduce to a simmer and leave for 20-25 minutes. 3 minutes before they are done add the spinach in to the pan.
3. Heat a pan of oil and fry the shallots and garlic until soft and golden brown. Set aside.
2. Take the salmon and coat it in oil (instead of the pan) and season with salt and pepper, depending on how thick your fillet is you fish should be fried for no more than 3 minutes on either side so it stays moist but gets lovely crispy skin (the not so healthy part if you eat it)
3. Chop the cherry tomatoes, and add to the chopped parsley, fried shallots and garlic with a squeeze of lemon juice. When the lentils and spinach are done, drain and mix together.
4. Plate the lentils and spinach and place the fish onto and garnish with a slice of lemon.
Simple and delicious.
