Baked Salmon Salad With Creamy Mint Dressing
sirtfooddiet.net
340 calories • 3 of your SIRT 5 a day
Baking the salmon in the oven makes this salad so simple.
Serves 1 • Ready in 20 minutes
1 salmon fillet (130g)
40g mixed salad leaves
40g young spinach leaves
2 radishes, trimmed and thinly sliced
5cm piece (50g) cucumber, cut into chunks
2 spring onions, trimmed and sliced
1 small handful (10g) parsley, roughly chopped
For the dressing:
1 tsp low-fat mayonnaise
1 tbsp natural yogurt
1 tbsp rice vinegar
2 leaves mint, finely chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 Preheat the oven to 200°C (180°C fan/Gas 6).
2 Place the salmon fillet on a baking tray and bake for 16–18 minutes until just cooked through. Remove from the oven and set aside. The salmon is equally nice hot or cold in the salad. If your salmon has skin, simply cook skin side down and remove the salmon from the skin using a fish slice after cooking. It should slide off easily when cooked.
3 In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, yogurt, rice wine vinegar, mint leaves and salt and pepper together and leave to stand for at least 5 minutes to allow the flavours to develop.
4 Arrange the salad leaves and spinach on a serving plate and top with the radishes, cucumber, spring onions and parsley. Flake the cooked salmon onto the salad and drizzle the dressing over.

Ingredients
8 Cherry tomatoes, halved
2 tsp Extra virgin olive oil
40 g Red onion, thinly sliced
1 Garlic clove, finely chopped
40 g Celery, thinly sliced
40 g Carrots, peeled and thinly sliced
1 tsp Paprika
1 tsp Thyme (dry or fresh)

Aromatic Chicken Breast with Kale, Red Onion, and Salsa.

Ingredients:
120g skinless, boneless chicken breast
2 tsp ground turmeric
juice of ¼ lemon
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
50g kale, chopped
20g red onion, sliced
1 tsp chopped fresh ginger
50g buckwheat

Instructions:
To make the salsa, remove the eye from the tomato and chop it very finely, taking care to keep as much of the liquid as possible. Mix with the chilli, capers, parsley and lemon juice. You could put everything in a blender but the end result is a little different.
Heat the oven to 220ºC/gas 7. Marinate the chicken breast in 1 teaspoon of the turmeric, the lemon juice and a little oil. Leave for 5–10 minutes.
Heat an ovenproof frying pan until hot, then add the marinated chicken and cook for a minute or so on each side, until pale golden, then transfer to the oven (place on a baking tray if your pan isn’t ovenproof) for 8–10 minutes or until cooked through. Remove from the oven, cover with foil and leave to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
Meanwhile, cook the kale in a steamer for 5 minutes. Fry the red onions and the ginger in a little oil, until soft but not coloured, then add the cooked kale and fry for another minute.
Cook the buckwheat according to the packet instructions with the remaining teaspoon of turmeric. Serve alongside the chicken, vegetables and salsa.
