Salmon, radish and roasted tomato salad

Last weekend we had a couple of very special guests staying with us; Mr Chipconnoisseur’s Mum and Dad.

I was excited for their visit mainly because they don’t get to see each other too often, but also because Chippy’s Dad is a passionate photographer and a Canon enthusiast, which meant we were able to set one afternoon aside for cooking, shooting and trying all sorts of different lenses he brought with him, and another for a chance to pick his brains about a more proper filing structure for my 14,000+ food photos and client files. What a treat!

To show my gratitude for his time and tutoring, I made a curry, baked a gluten-free hazelnut tart and, for lunch on Saturday, I prepared this simple but delicious salmon, radish and roasted tomato salad, inspired by a similar dish I had tried before at Peter Kuruvita’s Flying Fish & Chips at the Star. It was simple to prepare and as good as I could recall.

Serves 2

Salmon, radish and roasted tomato salad

By far, this is one of the easiest and most delicous salads you can prepare from leftover grilled salmon, or using those hot-smoked salmon packs widely available from delis and supermarket chillers. I had omitted grilled asparagus from the original salad here, but if you’d like, you could grill a few spears with the tomatoes as well to add more substance and flavour to this dish.

{Printable recipe}

For the salad:

  • 150g portion of grilled // or hot-smoked salmon, shredded
  • 100g mixed salad greens
  • 10 cherry tomatoes
  • 6 canned baby beets, cut into quarters
  • 2 red radishes, slices thinly
  • 3 tbsp French dressing

To roast the toamtoes: place tomatoes on a small roasting tray and pop under a grill, turn it on to 160C. Leave for 5-10 minutes while you make the rest of the salad.

To make the salad: place salad greens into a large serving bowl. Scatter beetroot quarters, salmon pieces and sliced radish around the greens. Remove tomatoes from under the grill and add them to the salad. Dress with a drizzle of Fresh salad dressing.
