  • serves 2
  • A little effort

A new idea for salmon. You can eat more oily fish with this easy recipe. Simply coat the fish in mustard and grill it then serve with quick-cooked cannellini beans - ready in just 20 minutes.



  • skinless salmon fillets 2
  • Dijon mustard 2 tsp
  • brown sugar 1 tsp
  • butter
  • shallot 1, finely chopped
  • greens 200g, shredded and blanched
  • cannellini beans 200g, rinsed and drained (if you have a 400g tin see leftovers on page 125 for how to use the rest)
  • lemon ½, zested and juiced


  • Step 1

    Put the salmon in a grill-proof dish. Mix the mustard and sugar with a splash of water and season. Brush all over the salmon. Grill for 5 minutes until the glaze is golden and the salmon is just cooked through.

  • Step 2

    Heat a pan and add a knob of butter. Cook the shallot until softened then add the greens and beans and heat. Add the lemon juice and the zest and season. Serve with the salmon.
