BAKED SALMON WITH SOUR CREAM AND WARM ROCKET AND LENTIL SALAD
Hot baked salmon on a warm rocket and lentil salad with capers, semi dried tomatoes and a red wine vinegar dressing.
Preheat the oven to 200°C
Bring a large saucepan of unsalted water to the boil. Add the lentils and boil gently for about 20 minutes or until the lentils are tender. Drain and place in a warm salad bowl.
Add the oil, garlic, capers, onion, parsley, tomatoes and rocket. Mix well so the rocket wilts.
Meanwhile, brush the salmon with extra virgin olive oil, season and place in a roasting dish. Place in the oven for 10 minutes or until the salmon is just cooked. Remove and break in large pieces.
Serve the salmon pieces on the warm salad and serve the sour cream on the side.
