1 large clove of garlic, chopped
Juice of 1 large lemon
2-3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Pinch of dried chili flakes (optional)
Black pepper, to taste
1. Add all of the ingredients except for the salmon into a large skillet over medium-high heat. Bring to a gentle boil.
2. Place the salmon in the pan, bring back to a gentle boil, reduce heat to medium-low and cover. Cook for 10-15 minutes or until salmon is cooked through. It should only take 10 minutes depending on the size of the salmon.
Place on a bed of arugula that has been tossed with extra-virgin olive oil and sea salt (or your favourite dressing). Spinach is another great option if you don’t like arugula. Add some of your favourite salad ingredients and you have yourself a delicious and healthy meal.
