Recipe by Francien van Eijkel

Prep Time: 10 minutes (includes cooking salmon etc)

Cook Time: Nil

Yield: 4 Persons

Ingredients

2 cups or 250 g pasta of choice.
1 cup or 100 g green garden peas
1 cup or 100g fresh green beans
5 oz or 150 g raw salmon
1 red bell pepper
1 cup or 100 g sweetcorn
Fresh Parsley chopped

Dressing:

4 tblsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 teaspoon Cayenne pepper / paprika
A squeeze of lemon or lime juice (optional)

Instructions:

1. Cook the pasta as package instructions, drain and rinse through with cold water. Leave to cool in a bowl.

2. Cook the salmon by adding a little olive oil in a frying pan, add the salmon fillet and vegetables. Fry until cooked.
** the salmon should flake apart nicely, and you should see the moisture inside the fillet if you break it apart. Be careful not to over cook the salmon as it will be dry.
Cook the vegetables to there is still a crunch to them.

3. When the salmon is cooked to your liking, put on a plate and lightly flake it apart using a fork. Leave big pieces so you will be able to see it in the salad.

4. Add the vegetables to the salad first, combine well, then lightly fold in the delicate salmon pieces.

5. In a small bowl, make up the dressing by mixing it all together then drizzle over the salad and enjoy!
