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.


Been thinking about these allllllll day. Then I got home and realised I didn’t have an egg. So, I tried them without. And ended up baking them after frying cuz they kept falling apart funnily enough! Anyway, after 10 mins I plonked them on some rocket, sploodged on ketchup and they were amaze!

1) peel, chop and boil one big ish potato.

2) drain and mash the potato. Mash in one tin of tuna and half a tin of sweetcorn.

3) form into patties and roll in breadcrumbs (I missed the roll in beaten egg step so probs do that before breadcrumbs).

4) fry until golden brown.

5) I ovened mine for 10 mins, but if yours are keeping their shape then well done!

6) plonk on some rocket.

Yummy in my tummy!
