2 salmon fillets
2 cups snow peas, tops removed
1/2 cup frozen peas
1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
40g feta cheese, diced
1/3 cup flaked almonds
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp red wine vinegar
Juice of half a lemon
25 - 30 MINUTES Minutes
Blanch the snow peas and frozen peas in a pot of boiling water for 1 minute and then rinse under cold water to cool. Drain and set aside in a large bowl.
Season the salmon fillets with a pinch of salt and place, skin side down into a pan on a medium-high heat with a small amount of olive oil.
Cook for 4-5 minutes and then flip, cooking for around another 5 minutes, depending on how you like your salmon cooked.
While the fish cooks, heat a second pan over a medium heat and toast the flaked almonds for approximately 30 seconds tossing regularly. Remove and set aside.
Place all of the salad and dressing ingredients together in a bowl and toss to coat, adding the nuts in last so they remain crunchy.
Serve the salmon with the salad on the side and an extra slice of lemon.
