2 120gm salmon fillets, skin off
150g French-style lentils
1 garlic clove
50g baby spinach leaves
20g shredded coconut
30 ml olive oil
Salt and pepper
1 To marinate fish preheat oven to 200C.
2 Zest and juice the lime in 2 separate bowls. Combine 3 tsp oil with the curry powder (use half of the curry powder if you perfer a milder taste) and lime zest in a bowl with a little salt. Add the salmon and turn to coat, rubbing the marinade into the salmon. Stand for 10 mins.
3 Meanwhile, rinse the lentils in a sieve and shake dry. Place in a medium saucepan with plenty of cold water and bring to the boil. Cook over medium heat for 15-18 mins until al dente. The lentils will have a slight nuttiness and still hold their shape. Drain.
4 Meanwhile, very finely chop the garlic and finely chop the tomato.
5 Line an oven tray with foil and place the salmon on the tray. Roast the salmon for 8 mins or until cooked but still slightly pink in the middle. Rest for 5 mins.
6 Drain the cooked lentils and return to the pan. Stir in the garlic, tomato, spinach leaves, 1 tbs lime juice and 3 tsp oil. Season well with salt and pepper.
7 Finely chop the coriander including the stems and combine with the coconut, 1 tbs lime juice and a little salt to make a fresh relish. Divide the lentils between plates and top with the salmon. Serve with the relish.
