Salmon, Quinoa, Mango and Feta Salad

Image: Salmon, mango, avocado and feta salad:

Every now and again I find a recipe which my whole family loves, it’s actually harder than it sounds; pleasing 5 very different tastes! This one from Sainsbury’s definitely fits the bill, everyone raved about it, even picky middle child had seconds and super healthy number 3 child took the leftovers for lunch the next day….result!

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 200g quinoa (I cheated with 2 x 250 g ready-made quinoa)
  • 2 limes, 1 zested and juiced and 1 juiced
  • 1½ tbsp olive oil
  • 250g ready-prepared mango, chopped into smaller pieces
  • 198g tin sweetcorn, drained
  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 28g fresh coriander, finely chopped (I left this out for picky number 3!)
  • 260g salmon fillets
  • 1 avocado
  • 40g feta, crumbled

Method

  1. Rinse and cook the quinoa according to the instructions on the packet, then drain and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the quinoa with the lime zest and juice, 1 tbsp olive oil and seasoning. Add the mango to the quinoa and season.
  3. Tip the sweetcorn and spring onions into the bowl with the quinoa. Add the chilli and toss it all together with seasoning and the coriander, reserving some to garnish.
  4. Heat the remaining olive oil in a pan and add the salmon, skin-side down. Season and cook for 8-10 minutes or until cooked through, flipping halfway. (You could also roast the salmon in the oven for 20 mins at 180c, I like to do this skin down on foil which then neatly removes the skin). Cut the avocado into pieces and stir through the quinoa.
  5. Flake the salmon through the salad with the avocado and garnish with the remaining coriander and crumbled feta.
