Salmon and avocado are both high in omega-3 fatty acids, particularly if the salmon is organically raised or wild.
 
Ingredients
2 leeks, washed, trimmed and sliced
300 gm fresh baby spinach leaves
1 tbl oil
2 prepared garlic cloves or ¼ tsp garlic powder
1 tbl grated fresh root ginger or ¼ tsp ground ginger
juice of ½ lemon or 1½ tbl lemon juice
4 x 100 gm salmon fillets
4 small new potatoes, scrubbed
fresh coriander leaves for garnish (optional)
 
Avocado dressing
1 ripe avocado
60 ml plain yogurt
juice of 1 lemon or 3 tbl lemon juice
2 prepared garlic cloves or 1/8th tsp garlic powder
1 tbl oil

Instructions
  • Preheat the oven to 200 oC.
  • Steam the leaks for 15 minutes
  • Meanwhile line a medium-sized baking tray with greaseproof paper and place the spinach leaves in it.
  • Mix the oil, garlic, ginger and lemon juice in a cup.
  • Boil the potatoes for 20 minutes
  • Meanwhile place the steamed leaks in the tray and lay the salmon fillets on top.
  • Drizzle the oil and flavourings over the fish.
  • Place the tray in the oven for 15 minutes.
 
Avocado dressing
  • Cut the avocado in two, scoop out the soft flesh and put it in a food blender or a bowl.
  • Add the other ingredients and blend or mash with a spoon to a smooth cream.
 
Tips
  • Serve with the potatoes and avocado dressing, garnished with coriander leaves if liked.
  • If the salmon fillets are very large, cut them in half and use half the number.
  • Watch out for special offers at the fish counter.
