Salmon, Samphire and Asparagus Salad; Topped with a Poached Egg and a Chilli and Herb Dressing

If you are one of those people that thinks salads are boring and tasteless then think again my friends, as this little number will officially knock your socks off! It’s full of so many awesome flavours and textures, and let’s face it, a perfectly poached egg make anything awesome. The dressing for this is also a killer, and you will be pleased to know that you will have plenty left over. I always make way too much salad dressing, but it just gives me a reason to eat more salads, as plain leaves are instantly given oomph with this bad boy, and it will keep in your fridge for about a week.

Serves 2

For the Salmon

Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until cooked through.

While the salmon is cooking, steam the leeks and the asparagus for 5 minutes

Heat a wok or a large saucepan to a medium temperature and fry the samphire, asparagus and leeks for 3 minutes to heat through

Whiz all the ingredients together for the dressing

Toss together the cooked veg with the rocket and divide between two plates.

Once the salmon is cooked, remove from the oven and flake over the salad.
