How to make salmon with watercress sauce #healthyeating

Start by removing any bones from a fillet of salmon per person. Feel for bones by running your fingers along the flesh against the grain and then pull them out using your fingers or fish tweezers.

Season the fish with salt and pepper. Put the salmon skin down and fry for a few mins until the skin is crispy. I don't use oil as the pan is super non stick but you might need a little

Turn it over and brown the other side. Use a medium heat as you need the flesh to cook through.

Once the salmon is almost cooked turn down the heat and add two large handfuls of watercress per person

Add two tablespoons of light cream cheese per person (this is Philadelphia)

Add (per person) a teaspoon of whole grain mustard, some black pepper, the juice of half a lemon and a little water to encourage the watercress to wilt and the cream cheese to melt.

Stir well and serve with green veg and mixed leaves. I like lots of sauce and the quantities given are per person. If you want less you can share the sauce between two/three. Enjoy!
