Here's something nice and fresh to make and share with company.

2 Tbsp sesame seeds
1-2 tsp finely ground black pepper
4 x 100g skinless salmon fillets
1 cup frozen peas
250g green beans, trimmed, sliced
1 small red onion, finely sliced
cup torn mint leaves
40g feta cheese, crumbled
Lemon wedges, to serve
4 baked potatoes, to serve

Combine sesame seeds and pepper on a sheet of baking paper. Press salmon fillets into mixture to coat.

Spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil and set over a high heat. Add salmon and cook each side for 2-3 minutes or until golden and just cooked through. Remove pan from heat, cover to keep warm and set aside.

Place peas and beans in a medium-sized heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Leave to stand for 2 minutes then drain.

Combine peas and beans with onion, mint and feta in a large bowl. Divide mint peas among serving plates, top each with a reserved salmon fillet and serve with lemon wedges and potatoes.

Serves: 4
