Salmon with Dijon and Chive Sauce

One of the best things about being at home - fresh vegetables from the garden. My parents grow EVERYTHING in the garden which is a bonus for me and my love of cooking.

Continuing my healthy eating quest, I opted for a nice piece of salmon as 'sunday lunch' rather than the pork joint offered to me. Having something like this and serving with steamed vegetables is incredibly healthy and, as a little treat, a tasty low fat sauce.

[Recipe adapted from Yummly]

All you need for one is:

1 fillet of salmon
A pinch of chill flakes
Pepper, to season
Vegetables of your choice - I opted for peas, broad beans, broccoli and new potatoes

All you need for the sauce is:
3 tbsp low fat creme fraiche
1 tsp dijon mustard
1 tbsp chives, chopped
Pepper, to season
1 tbsp lemon juice

Preheat your oven to 180 and place your salmon on a piece of foil on a baking tray.

Smear the mustard over the top, drizzle with a tiny bit of oil and season with a bit of pepper.

Pop in the oven for 5-7 minutes.

The vegetables needed about 25-30 minutes in the steamer so make sure you time that well.

For the sauce it is so simple - just mix everything together in a bowl and add a little pepper.

Dish everything up, drizzle some sauce over the salmon and serve the rest in a little pot.

NOTE: You can also pan fry your salmon - about 2 minutes on each side.
