By 

Ingredients

  • 4 x 200g salmon fillet, pin boned & skin removed
  • 2 teaspoons wholegrain mustard
  • ¼ cup light sour cream
  • Vegetable mash
  • ½ butternut pumpkin, peeled & diced
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, peeled and finely sliced
  • 1 small clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 zucchini, grated
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and grated
  • 2 teaspoons low fat spread or butter
  • salt and pepper

Preparation method

Place pumpkin into a microwave safe bowl and add a couple of tablespoons of water; cover and cook on high for 5 minutes or until pumpkin tender. Drain and set aside.

Heat oil in a pan over medium heat, add onion and garlic and cook 2-3 minutes until softened. Stir in grated vegetables and cook a further 5-8 minutes or until vegetables are cooked.

Toss cooked pumpkin in with vegetable mix and mash until smooth. Stir through spread (or butter) and season to taste. Set aside in a warm place until required.

Meanwhile, heat a char-grill pan over medium high heat. Cook salmon fillets for 3 minutes on one side. Turn over and cook a further 1-2 minutes for medium rare or until cooked to your liking. Remove and rest for a few minutes.

Mix mustard and sour cream together.

To serve, divide mash between four serving plates. Top with a salmon fillet and a dollop of mustard cream. Serve immediately.
