The FSA have advised that allergic reactions to rapeseed oil are rare.
Vegetable Stock Paste(ContainsCelery)
Bulgur Wheat(ContainsCereals containing gluten)
Greek Style Salad Cheese(ContainsMilk)
Water for the Bulgur
Preheat your oven to 200°C. Pick the mint leaves from their stalks and roughly chop (discard the stalks). Halve, peel and thinly slice the shallot. Trim the courgette, then quarter lengthways. Chop widthways into small pieces.
Pop a saucepan on medium-high heat and add the cumin seeds (no oil). Stir and toast until fragrant, 1 min. Add a drizzle of oil and the shallot, then fry until softened, 3-4 mins. Pour the water for the bulgur wheat (see ingredients for amount) into the saucepan and bring to the boil. Stir in the vegetable stock paste and bulgur wheat, bring back to the boil and simmer for 1 min. Pop a lid on the pan and remove from the heat. Leave to the side for 12-15 mins or until ready to serve.
Lay the salmon fillets, skin-side down, onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Season with salt and pepper, then sprinkle the ground coriander over the flesh. Roast on the top shelf of your oven until the salmon is cooked through, 10-15 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw fish. The salmon is cooked when opaque in the middle.
Meanwhile, heat a frying pan on high heat (no oil). When hot, add the courgette and cook until charred, 6-8 mins total. Turn only every couple of mins - this will result in the courgette picking up some nice colour. Once cooked, season with salt and pepper, then transfer to a bowl. While the courgettes char, remove the pistachios from their shells, then roughly chop. Crumble the Greek style salad cheese into small pieces.
When the bulgur wheat is ready, use a fork to fluff it up. Gently fold in the Greek style salad cheese, mint and courgettes. Season to taste with salt and pepper if needed. Share the bulgur between your bowls, arranging the rocket on top.
When the salmon is cooked, remove from the oven and drizzle over the honey. TIP: If your honey has hardened, pop it in a bowl of hot water for 1 min. Spread the honey across the top of the fillets with the back of a spoon and then sprinkle the pistachios on top. Carefully place the salmon onto the rocket leaves and serve. Enjoy!
