  • 2 Russell’s salmon fillets (skin on)
  • 2 tbsp harissa 
  • 1 juiced lemon
  • olive oil
  • 200g baby leaf spinach, chopped
  • 1 pouch of ready-to-eat quinoa, grains and red rice mix 

Serves 2 Total Time 12 mins

  • 4 spring onions, chopped
  • 1 red chilli, chopped
  • 1 handful of dill, chopped
  • 1 handful of coriander, chopped
  • ½ avocado, stoned and sliced
  • greek yogurt, swirled with harissa to serve

Instructions

  1. Put the salmon skin-side down in a heatproof shallow dish. Mix the harissa with 1 tbsp of lemon juice, 1 tsp olive oil and rub all over the fish. Heat the grill to medium-high. Grill for 5–6 minutes without turning until cooked through, then leave to sit off the heat for a minute.
  2. Wilt the spinach in a pan with just a drop of oil and some seasoning.
  3. Heat the pouch of grains in the microwave. Tip into a bowl with most of the spring onions, chilli, dill and the rest of the lemon juice. Season and toss everything together.
  4. Spoon the grains onto a plate. Add the salmon (leaving the skin behind), some spinach, avocado and yogurt. Scatter with the remaining chilli, spring onion and dill.
