Ingredients

  • 2 (skin on) salmon fillets
  • 2 tbsp harissa
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • olive oil
  • 200g young spinach, chopped
  • 1 pouch (we used Merchant Gourmet) ready-to-eat quinoa, grains and red rice mix
  • 4 spring onions, chopped
  • 1 red chilli, chopped
  • a handful dill, chopped
  • ½ avocado, stoned and sliced
  • swirled with harissa to serve greek yogurt

Method

  • STEP 1

    Put the salmon skin-side down in a heatproof shallow dish. Mix the harissa with 1 tbsp of lemon juice, 1 tsp olive oil and rub all over the flesh. Heat the grill to medium-high. Grill for 5-6 minutes without turning until cooked through, then leave to sit off the heat for a minute.

  • STEP 2

    Wilt the spinach in a pan with just a drop of oil and some seasoning.

  • STEP 3

    Heat the grains pouch in the microwave. Tip into a bowl with most of the spring onions, chilli, dill and the rest of the lemon juice. Season and toss everything together.

  • STEP 4

    Spoon the grains onto a plate. Add the salmon (leave the skin behind), some spinach, avocado and yogurt. Scatter with the remaining chilli, spring onion and dill.
