Piri Piri Salmon with Lentils and Peas

This is a super speedy recipe that's perfect for a healthy midweek supper.

We used BigFish Piri Piri fillets but you can try it with any of the other flavours in our marinated range or even just use a plain salmon fillet


  • 1 pack BigFish salmon fillets

    (two fillets)

  • 1 pack microwaveable lentils
  • a small cupful of peas

    frozen or fresh

  • 1 tbsp creme fraiche
  • 1 tbsp horseradish sauce
  • 1 avocado

    sliced, to serve

  • Omega3 oil

    for drizzling


  • 1.

    Mix the crème fraiche and the horseradish in a bowl to make a sauce.  You can vary the proportions and taste until you get a mix you like, more crème fraiche for a milder flavour.

  • 2.

    Microwave the lentils according to the pack instructions. 

  • 3.

    If you’re using frozen peas, microwave these in a dish until warm before mixing into the cooked lentils in a bowl.  If you’re using fresh peas you can put these into the lentils raw.

  • 4.

    Microwave the salmon fillets according to the pack instructions.

  • 5.

    Divide the lentils and peas between two warmed plates.  Now put the cooked salmon fillets on top of the lentils and pour a few generous spoonfuls of the crème fraiche dressing over each fillet.

  • 6.

    Garnish with slices of fresh avocado, drizzle each serving with a little Omega3 oil then eat and enjoy immediately!

  • “I like this made with puy lentils but you can get several different sorts of microwaveable lentils, just choose your favourite!”
