    Roast salmon with broad bean risotto

    Quick and easy supper dish. It is healthy because it includes part of your 5 aday (although it has been suggested that this should be 8 aday) and omega 3. It contains very little fat (no dairy}. The best way to serve: Place risotto on plate and lay salmon across it, sprinkle herbs used on top, lemon wedges to the side and salad in a bowl alongside.

    My recipe is:

    • Deliciously fishy

    Why should your recipe win?
    Because I think this is such a tasty recipe and so quick and easy anyone could make it. Peas could be subsituted for the broad beans or/and chopped courgette. It is healthy. I made this when I was recovering from flu, being dairy/maize starch intolerate I am unable to eat most ready meals, so I have to improvise.
