Seared salmon with Greek salad smoothie

Method

  • Place the tomatoes with a little water, the red onion, garlic, cucumbers, feta, crème fraiche, 2 tbsp oil, lemon juice and a pinch of salt in a blender. Whiz up for about 2 mins until smooth. Taste for seasoning.
  • Heat a thin layer of oil in a non-stick pan and gently cook one side of the salmon, seasoning as you do so. Then turn it over and cook the other side, adding the butter with a good squeeze of lemon juice and basting as you do so. 
  • Pour the smoothie into individual flat soup bowls and top with the salmon, a garnish of watercress and a sprinkling of fresh oil.
