Hawkshead Rosé 2019

Grilled Salmon with a Mushroom, Roquette, Garlic and Puy Lentil Salad

Netflix Pick:

Dead to Me

Spotify Playlist:

Ingredients

200g Puy lentils or 2 x 400g tins of brown lentils
1 bay leaf
2 thyme sprigs
800ml vegetable stock (or water)
1 tbsp olive oil
400g mushrooms of your choosing – I like to use button and portobello, sliced and cut
2 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
4 x 100g salmon fillets
100g rocket leaves
Sea salt and ground pepper

For the dressing:
1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed
2 tbsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp wholegrain mustard
1 tsp runny honey
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsbp water

Method

· Put the lentils into a large saucepan along with the bay leaf, thyme and stock and bring to the boil over a medium-high heat, then reduce to a simmer for 15-20 minutes until tender.
· In the meantime, heat a large frying pan over a medium high heat and add the olive oil.
· Once hot, add the mushrooms with a pinch of salt and cook for 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until soft and lightly caramelized on the edges.
· Add the chopped garlic and continue to cook for 2 minutes, then remove the pan from the heat.
· Once the lentils are tender, drain well and discard the herbs. Put the lentils into a large mixing bowl and add the mushrooms. Mix together gently to avoid breaking up the lentils too much.
· To make the dressing, put all the ingredients into a clean jam jar with a pinch of salt and pepper. Close the lid of the jar and shake until all the ingredients come together and emulsify.
· Preheat the grill on a high heat for the salmon, grill for 6-8 minutes to your preference.
· Pour half the dressing over the warm lentils and toss gently to ensure everything is coated. Fold on the rocket, place the salmon on top and pour over the remaining dressing.
· Serve immediately.

This is one of my favourite go-to guilt free recipes! It is easily made vegan by replacing the honey with coconut or brown sugar and by replacing the salmon with whole roasted portobello mushrooms or even just by throwing in some extra greens!
