Ingredients
  

  • 2x 200g salmon fillets (2 x 7oz fillets)
  • 150 g cherry tomatoes (5oz)
  • 1/2 medium red onion
  • 225 g spinach leaves (1 cup)
  • 240 ml coconut cream (1 cup)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp dried sage
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • pinches of salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp dried mustard powder
  • 1/8 tsp curry powder

Instructions
 

  • Halve or quarter the tomatoes dependent on the size. Slice the onion.
  • Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat (I use number 5).
  • Add the onion and tomatoes and fry till they are just turning soft.
  • Dry the salmon with kitchen paper and season with salt on all sides.
  • Push the onion and tomatoes to the outside of the pan. Add the salmon fillets to the centre of the pan.
  • Fry the salmon fillets for 4 mins on each side.
  • Push the salmon to the outside and bring the onion and tomatoes back to the centre again.
  • In the centre of the pan add the crushed garlic, basil, sage, salt, black pepper, mustard powder and curry powder. Stir the herbs into the onions and tomatoes for 1 min.
  • Add the coconut cream and spinach and immediately turn the heat down to low (I use number 3).
  • Stir everything together (be careful not to break up the salmon fillets) and simmer on low for 5-10 mins until the spinach starts to wilt.
  • Serve.
