  • 12 slices of lemon
  • 4 x 120g skinless salmon fillets
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Minted crushed peas

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 spring onions, sliced
  • 450g frozen peas, thawed
  • 1 cup (250ml) Massel vegetable liquid stock
  • 1 teaspoon caster sugar
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped mint leaves
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan


  • Step 1
    For minted crushed peas, heat oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat, add spring onions and cook for 1 minute. Increase heat to medium-high and add peas, stock, sugar and mint, and cook for 5 minutes. Drain, reserving 1/3 cup (80ml) of the liquid, then add back to pea mixture. Roughly mash or pulse in a processor to roughly chop. Stir in cheese, then cover and set aside.
  • Step 2
    Place lemon, slightly overlapping, on top of each fillet. Heat oil in a large non-stick frypan over high heat. Carefully add fillets, lemon-side down, and cook for 3 minutes or until lemon begins to caramelise. Carefully turn over and cook for a further 2-3 minutes. Serve on peas.
