  • 2 Salmon Fillets
  • Juice and zest of a lemon
  • 3 Tsp Honey

For the salad:

  • 2 Handfuls of spinach
  • 2 Handfuls of cherry tomatoes
  • 2 Handfuls of chopped cucumber
  • 1 Ripe avocado

For the dressing:

  • 4 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 4 Tbsp Tahini
  • 2 Tbsp Lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp Honey
  • 1/2 Tsp Sea salt


  1. Mix your lemon zest and juice with the honey and brush over the salmon fillets.
  2. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes at 180C until cooked through.
  3. Allow to cool.
  4. Arrange your salad ingredients onto a bed of the spinach.
  5. Make the dressing by whisking all of the ingredients together. It can take a while as the tahini is a bit slow to incorporate, but it will get there. Add a teaspoon or two of water if it's all too gloopy.
  6. Pour over just before serving.
