  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 skinless centre-cut salmon fillets (about 6 oz/170 g each)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 2 tablespoons grainy mustard
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
Chickpea Mash:
  • 1 cup dried chickpea
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 clove
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic grated or pressed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper

Method

Chickpea Mash: Rinse chickpeas; soak overnight in 3 times their volume of water. (Or, for quick-soak method, bring chickpeas and water to boil in medium saucepan; boil over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Remove from heat; cover and let stand for 1 hour.) Drain.

In saucepan, cover chickpeas with 6 cups water. Add bay leaf and clove; bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until chickpeas are tender, 25 to 45 minutes. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid. Discard bay leaf and clove.

Stir in oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and cayenne pepper; mash, adding 1 tbsp of the reserved cooking liquid at a time as needed, to make coarse, creamy mash. Keep warm.

Meanwhile, sprinkle fish with salt and pepper. Place on parchment paper–lined baking sheet.

In small bowl, stir together mustard and maple syrup. Brush over fish. Roast in 375 F (190 C) oven until fish flakes easily when tested with fork, about 20 minutes. Serve with chickpea mash.
