  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 8 new potatoes (about 1 lb/500g),scrubbed
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 salmon fillets (about 1-1/2 lb/750 g total)
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1 shallot chopped
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 2 cups thinly sliced mushrooms
  • 2 cups thinly sliced leeks
  • 16 cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 cup pea sprout (optional)
Dressing:
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Method

In large pot of boiling salted water, cover and cook potatoes until tender, about 12 minutes. Drain and let cool; cut each into quarters and set aside.

Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix together 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil, salt and pepper; brush over salmon. Place, skin side down, on greased grill over medium heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until fish flakes easily when tested, about 8 minutes.

Dressing: In small bowl, whisk oil, vinegar, thyme, salt and pepper; set aside.

In large nonstick skillet, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat; stir-fry shallot, garlic, mushrooms and leeks until mushrooms are golden and leeks are softened, about 5 minutes.

Add tomatoes and potatoes; heat through, about 2 minutes. Add 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the dressing; cook, stirring to combine, for 3 minutes.

Divide sprouts (if using) among plates; top with mushroom mixture. Top each with salmon; drizzle with remaining dressing.
