Salmon fillets with fresh salsa and cannellini puree

    30 min

    This is an impressive salmon dish - both to look at and to eat. It's super easy to achieve, however! A fresh mango-cucumber salsa tops pan-fried salmon, served over a lovely cannellini bean mash.

    1. To make the salsa: Place cucumber, spring onion, mango, capers, chilli, lemon juice and olive oil in a bowl; mix gently to combine. Set aside.
    2. In a medium pan add the beans, bay leaf, garlic and stock and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes, remove bay leaf. Mash until smooth and creamy. Set aside and keep warm.
    3. Pat the salmon with kitchen paper. Heat the groundnut oil in a non stick pan and cook the salmon fillets over medium heat for a few minutes with the skin side down until golden brown and crispy. Turn over and cook the other side for a couple of minutes until just cooked through.
    4. Place 1/4 of bean puree onto each plate, top with salmon and the top with salsa.
