Natural Salmon Salad 3

Ingredients

  • 2 BigFish Brand Natural or Organic Salmon fillets
  • For the salad
  • 1 and a half cups of quinoa, cooked to packet instructions
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 medium carrots, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 cooked beetroots, diced
  • 1 handful fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced

Method

1. Pre-heat the oven to 190°C. Remove all packaging from the salmon fillets and loosely wrap in lightly oiled tin foil. Cook in the oven for 35-40 minutes.

2. To make the salad; Simply combine all of the ingredients into a bowl and season with salt and fresh black pepper.  If you make this in advance (a few hours or the day before) all the flavours will combine and the salad will also take on a lovely vibrant purple colour from the beetroot.   Store in the fridge until you are ready to serve with the cooked salmon.
