Yield: 4 x fillets

Preparation Time: 10 mins
Cooking Time: 20 mins

Ingredients:

    200 g green beans, fresh or frozen
    8 small baby red gourmet potatoes, skin on
    2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
    1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
    0.40 tsp wholegrain mustard
    1 Tbsp olive oil
    1 pinch each of salt and freshly ground black pepper
    114.29 g avocado, peeled and sliced
    1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
    4 small salmon fillets (about 4 oz each)
    1 pinch of freshly ground black pepper, extra

Directions:

    PARSLEY POTATOES: In a saucepan, bring water to a boil; place potatoes in boiling water. Cook until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain. Add parsley. Keep lid on saucepan; set aside.

    AVOCADO AND GREEN BEAN SALAD: Steam green beans until bright green and tender crisp. Refresh under cold running water. Drain well. Place the green beans and onion in a medium bowl. Add mustard and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Add avocado slices, sprinkle lemon juice over and toss gently to combine.

    SALMON: Preheat grill on medium-high. Spray the salmon fillets with cooking spray and season with black pepper. Cook fish on preheated grill for 1 to 2 minutes on each side, or until cooked to your liking.

    Divide the green bean salad among serving plates, top with the salmon, and serve with parsley potatoes.
