With fresh seafood like salmon, all you need is a little pepper and citrus to bring it to life! We're keeping things simple and light in this dish with the addition of pesto dressing and veggies. Oh, and don't forget to pat the salmon dry to make the skin super crispy!

Each week, we search the country to source the best produce, with a focus on seasonality, quality, and variety. Due to the recent hot weather, this week's green beans were not up to our quality standards so we've replaced them with baby spinach leaves. Don't worry, the recipe will be just as delicious!

ROAST THE POTATO
ROAST THE POTATO
1

Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Cut the potato (unpeeled) into 1cm chunks. Transfer to the oven tray lined with baking paper and add a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Toss to coat, then roast for 25-30 minutes or until tender. TIP: Cut the potato to the correct size so it cooks in the allocated time.

While the potato is roasting, cut the zucchini into 1cm chunks. Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). Slice the lemon (see ingredients list) into wedges.

TIP: For the low-calorie option, omit the pine nuts. Heat a medium frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the pine nuts and toast, tossing, for 3-4 minutes, or until golden. Transfer to a plate.

Once hot, add the salmon, skin-side down, to the pan and cook for 2-4 minutes on each side (depending on thickness), or until just cooked through.
