Baked Salmon with Vegetable Cream and Spicy Blueberry Salsa


I am blueberry obsessed this week! When I told Tom what I was making for dinner tonight he was very sceptical but sure enough his plate was empty within minutes after I put it in front of him!

The different textures in this dish really compliment each other and the spice and sweetness from the blueberry salsa finishes off the salmon perfectly.

I know it sounds like a bizarre combination but give it a try you’ll be pleasantly surprised, the best dinner I have made in a long time!

What you’ll need (serves 2)

2 fillets of fresh salmon
Juice of 1 lemon
100 grams of blueberries
1 small red chilli
2 small green chilli
1 large red chilli
1/2 red bell pepper

1 sweet potato
1/2 cauliflower head
1/2 clove of garlic
1/2 tsp butter
1 tbsp natural yoghurt
1 spring onion
Salt and pepper
8 asparagus stalks
Sprinkle paprika
1/2 tsp olive oil
