Roasted Salmon with Italian Spelt, Veg, Avocado and a Lemon Dill Crème Fraîche

I go to Vietnam in 2 week for 2 weeks! So it’s time to start eating healthily. My boyfriend is away so I bought a two pack of expensive salmon to treat myself so this recipe and the following will use up the pack. Hope you enjoy it as I did!

Serves 1


  • 1 salmon fillet
  • chilli flakes

  • 1 tbsp crème fraîche, heaped
  • 50g spinach
  • 1/2 pack tender stem broccoi
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced
