This is a super easy recipe! A delicious and healthy dinner for 2 that can easily be adjusted to serve more. I like to serve this along side a simple salad and steamed sugar snap peas. (Recipe courtesy of BBC's Good Food magazine: Healthy Issue February 2007)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 leeks, trimmed, washed and each cut into about 5 pieces
  • 2 (150 g) salmon fillets, skin removed, each about 150 grams
  • 410 g canned green lentils, drained and rinsed under hot water
  • 6 tablespoons French dressing
  • 12 cup baby spinach leaves
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Steam the leeks for about 10 minutes until soft, then lay the salmon on top and continue to team for an additional 5 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through.
  2. While the salmon and leeks are steaming, add the lentils to a bowl with 4 tablespoons of the french dressing and some seasoning.
  3. When the salmon is cooked lift out of the steamer and set aside.
  4. Add the steamed leeks and baby spinach to the lentils and toss well.
  5. Divide the lentil salad mixture between two plates, top with the steamed salmon and drizzle over the remaining dressing.
  6. Serve and enjoy!
