If you’re after a delicious and healthy lunch idea that is easy to make and is perfect for a Tupperware box then you’ve found it!
The other week Sainsbury’s asked me to blog a ‘Best of British’ themed recipe and with summer just around the corner I thought nothing seemed more appropriate than a delicious salad recipe using oily fish.
Ideally we should eat fish twice a week, 1 of which is oily and this recipe is perfect for helping you to hit those numbers! Oily fish such as salmon is an excellent source of healthy omega 3 fatty acids which are essential for heart health. I really hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
Nutrition stats are based on 3 servings – as shown in the video above!
- 250g ready to eat Quinoa or 75g dry couscous*
- 1/2 can chickpeas
- 2 small salmon fillets**
- 1 bag of salad e.g. baby leaf
- 1/2 cucumber
- 1 small pepper
- 1/2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tsp dill
- zest & juice of 1 lemon
*I used Red & White Quinoa – Ready to Eat
**I used pre-cooked salmon for ease!
Cook the quinoa/couscous according to the packet & add it to a large bowl before adding the zest and juice of 1 lemon, olive oil and dill. Mix well!
Slice and chop the cucumber into chunks before adding to the bowl along with the sliced pepper & chickpeas. Mix well!
Grab your plate or Tupperware containers & add the salad leaves either at one end of the container or at the bottom (check out my video/pictures for a full explanation!) before adding the quinoa or couscous mix. Add the flaked salmon on top of your salad & enjoy!
