{Recipe} Salmon Fillet(s) with Lentils, Baby Plumb Tomatoes and Avocado

Hello It’s Melanie from Melanie’s Fab Finds.  Miranda was looking for bloggers to do guests posts for her and I thought I would lend a hand. You see, us bloggers like to support each other as we are a tight community.

With the Summer season in full swing, although given the weather this last week you might not have known it. I have been looking to create some gorgeous easy to prepare summery dishes.  My aim to combine ingredients to create dishes full of flavour and numerous nutrients that are beneficial to health.

Salmon Fillet(s) with Lentils, Baby Plumb Tomatoes and Avocado

Salmon is something I can struggle to eat unless it is smoked or accompanied by a good mix of flavours.  A nice summery dish is one that is colourful, a nutritional mix that will have various benefits to the body.  Salmon for instance is full of good oil (omega 3) that we need to help keep our skin and hair looking great.  It also helps reduce inflammation within the body and reduce the risk of atherosclerosis, hypertension and stroke.

Feed salmon to preschoolers regularly and you might be able to help prevent ADHA symptoms and improve their performance at school.  The omega 3 is also great to help reduce the risk of dementia developing in later life – quick grab me a salmon fillet!!!  It is protein rich so make a great meal after a workout and for those trying to control their weight.

Lentils are also a great addition to meals.  They are packed with protein and fibre and have very little fat.  Lentils also contain various nutrients including Vitamins A, B6, B12,C, calcium, iron and magnesium.  They are a great way to bulk up a meal as they will leave you feeling full due to the protein and complex carbohydrates which suppress the appetite and make you feel like you have eaten.

My Salmon Fillet(s) with Lentils, Baby Plumb Tomatoes and Avocado is just the dish to provide you with a filling and tasty meal. Serves 1

  • I never know what to do with fish recipes – I’m vegetarian but I see some really lovely-sounding recipes that I can’t eat! Would you have any recommendations for how to replace it in this recipe?
