Nigella Lawson salmon with watercress and avocado salad recipe on Simply Nigella

Nigella Lawson served up wild Alaskan salmon with avocado, watercress and pumpkin seed salad on Simply Nigella.

Nigella says: “This is a regular lunch or supper at casa mia, as anyone who follows me on Twitter or Instagram will recognise. I sometimes poach the salmon and keep it in the fridge, just so that I can make it even faster when the need hits. It’s quick work anyway, so this is more of an aside than a piece of advice.”

The ingredients are: 2 wild Alaskan salmon fillets, 2 spring onions, trimmed, 1 tsp black peppercorns, 2½ tsp lime juice and 2 tsp sea salt flakes.

For the salad: 3 tbsp pumpkin seeds, 100g watercress, 1 tsp organic cloudy apple cider vinegar, 1 small ripe avocado, 1 tbsp cold-pressed rapeseed oil or extra-virgin olive oil and 1 tsp sea salt flakes, or to taste.

The recipe is taken from Nigella’s book titled: Simply Nigella: Feel Good Food, available from Amazon now.
