Ingredients

  • 4 Huon Salmon portions, skin on
  • 4 small zucchinis, cut into noodles* (about four cups)
  • 1 punnet cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup mint leaves
  • 1/4 cup toasted hazelnuts, lightly chopped
  • 80g Danish feta cheese
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 4 tbsp olive oil

    In a large bowl combine zucchini noodles, tomatoes, mint, hazelnuts and feta cheese. Toss with 1 teaspoon of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season to taste.

    Remove from heat then pour over the remaining lemon juice. Transfer the salmon to a serving plate and baste with any of the buttery juices left in the pan.
