Method

Heat the oven to 180

Mix the olive oil with the spices and spread over the salmon fillets. Pop them in the oven to cook for 15 minutes.

Dice the tomatoes, spring onions and chilli and place into a bowl. Use a peeler to peel the courgettes into ribbons, chop the avocado and add both to the salad, before seasoning with salt and pepper.

Zest the lemon over the bowl, then juice it into a small dish, add the olive oil and a good pinch of salt.

Chop the mint, and scatter over the salad, before drizzling over the dressing

Serve with the salmon – warm or cold – and a dollop of greek yogurt or creme fraiche on the side.
