Christmassy Thermomix Salmon Salad

By on December 11, 2018 in Coeliac Life with 0 Comments

Using my Thermomix, I have made the delicious Salmon, quinoa, feta and mixed vegetable salad several times and it struck me that the colours are very Christmassy, so could be a good dish for Christmas day in Australia.  It can be served immediately or prepared in advance and served cold.

It is naturally gluten free but do check quinoa and other packaged items for ‘may contain wheat/gluten’ statements due to shared processing equipment.

It serves six as a main meal and is from the Thermomix ‘Fabulous Flavour on Every Level‘ cookbook (I accessed the recipe via my Australian Cookidoo subscription).

There is an almost identical recipe (Superfood Salmon Salad) in the ‘Wholefood Cooking‘ recipe book. I prefer the ‘Fabulous Flavour on Every Level’ recipe as it cooks the salmon and quinoa at the same time.  The only change I would make is chopping the chilli and garlic before adding the olive oil (as it didn’t chop as efficiently with the oil already added).  I would also add a bit more chilli, as I like a bit of ‘kick’.

The salmon cooks in the tray level of the varoma and 600g of salmon fillets (skin off) worked out at around three and half fillets of the salmon I bought at Coles.

You need a big bowl to mix things together as they are prepared – I ended up having to use two bowls as the one I got out wasn’t big enough.  The photo below was before mixing in the kale, feta and salmon so you can see how colourful it can be.

To finish the salad off,  you top it with dried cranberries, pepita seeds and some extra crumbled feta. You can see the colours a lot better in the photo of my lunch box below when everything is mixed in well.  It keeps well for the next day and I think the flavours actually develop even further if left overnight.

 .  

The suggested time on the recipe is 30 minutes, but it took me at least twice that as it takes some time to wash all the vegetables, manually chop the tomato, capsicum and cucumber and rip all the kale from the stems and slice manually.  I’m not sure why the kale is not blitzed in the Thermomix as a first step – could be worth a try!?
