    Cook's tips

    Serve the lentils cold as a scrumptious salad with the salmon flaked through.

    Drinks recommendation

    Ginger suits really aromatic wines and
    Cave de Turckheim Gewürztraminer, Alsace,
    France, also has a generous, soft texture
    that complements the lentils and salmon.
