  • DifficultyEasy
2 tbsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed
100g mushrooms, sliced
1/2 red pepper, sliced
100g Swiss chard
1 tbsp fresh thyme, chopped
Salt and pepper
2 x 250g fresh salmon fillets, skin off
140g sugar snaps
Juice and rind of 1/2 lemon

Preheat the oven at 200°C and line a baking tray with greased foil.

Heat the oil and sauté the garlic for a minute.

Add the mushrooms and pepper and cook until slightly soft.

Add the Swiss chard, thyme and lemon zest and cook until wilted. Season and leave to cool slightly.

Make a lengthwise slit on the fish fillets (keeping both ends in tact) to make room for the stuffing.

Stuff half of the stuffing into each fillet and place in a baking sheet lined with foil.

Bake in oven for 10 minutes.

Add the sugar snaps and bake for a further 2 minutes of cooking until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. The fish should still be pink inside.

Transfer to serving platter and finish with a squeeze of lemon juice.
