The moment the temperature tips over 16 degrees I start eating salad again. I’m also on a bit of a health kick. This salad is massive and would easily do you for dinner.

[5 mins prep / 40 min baking @ 180 degrees C / serves 1 : 1 salmon fillet, 1 sweet potato, 2 eggs, rocket]

1) peel and chop 1 sweet potato, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper, place in the oven at 180 degrees.

2) in a ramekin, mix 1 dessert spoon of olive oil with cayenne pepper and smoked paprika to create a paste. Then smother on a salmon fillet. Pop in the oven 15 mins after the sweet potato.

3) after 15 more mins, boil two eggs for 8-10 minutes. Peel and halve.

4) flake the salmon and place on top of mixed leaves with the sweet potato.

Pop on your eggs with symmetry!

As easy dinners go – this is one that requires barely any effort but packs a tasty punch in flavour. Anything with halloumi is the best.

1) in a blender, whizz up 3-5 sun dried tomatoes and their oil, and a shake of chilli powder, to form a paste. Place a salmon fillet in an oven proof dish and spread on paste. Bake on 180 degrees C for 20 mins.

2) to prepare the lentil salad, wash a tin of lentils, stir in 2-3 chopped salad tomatoes and add a splash of lemon juice.

3) slice halloumi and grill for 2-3 mins until golden brown on both sides.

4) place rocket on a plate, put lentil salad on top, place the cooked fish on top and add the halloumi.

Yum!
