1 courgette, grated

1 carrot, grated

1 x 250g pack ready to heat brown rice or quinoa

150g spinach

1tbsp tahini

Salmon with brown rice or Quinoa is transformed with the nut and seed fish crust. So easy to put together and two of your portions of veggies

Serves 2


  1. Heat the oven to 220°C/fan 200°C/gas 7 and line a baking dish with non-stick baking paper. Add the salmon fillets to the dish, then press the ground seed mix on top. Bake for 10 min or until the fish is just cooked through – it should still be a little pink in the middle.
  2. Meanwhile, lightly spray a deep pan with the olive oil and heat over a medium heat. Add the cinnamon and ground coriander to the pan with the onion, then stir-fry for 5 min or until the onion is nicely coloured. Add the courgette and carrot, then cook for a further 2 min.
  3. While the onion mixture is cooking, heat the rice/quinoa according to the pack instructions, then add to the pan along with the spinach and stir for a minute until the leaves wilt. Squeeze in a lemon wedge and season with black pepper.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the tahini and yogurt with 1tbsp water, then squeeze in the juice of another lemon wedge. Mix well.
  5. Serve the salmon with the stir-fried veg and rice, drizzled with the tahini sauce. Garnish with the remaining lemon wedges and some chopped fresh parsley, if you like.
