This flavour packed, omega 3 rich recipe is another wonderful supper choice for a hot summer's day.
Salmon filets are marinated in a punchy honey, chilli, garlic and spice mixture before being roasted to flaky perfection alongside some baby new potatoes in the oven.
The real star however of the dish is the avocado, herb and yogurt sauce which does not require any cooking whatsoever (god bless the blender) but is so creamy and fragrant and acts as the ideal counterpart to the spicy salmon.
All gets served up with some chunks of feta (why not) and roast broccoli, making it a nutritious, satisfying yet quick to make dinner that is an absolute joy to eat!
