Potted salmon 167 cals for one
13 Aug 2013, 15:33
Serves 2 as light lunch or one (at 344 cals) if used for a main meal.
I do like my fish, but finding ways to serve it is tricky, as I'm not too keen on it in stews.

I used to enjoy a potted salmon made by a chef friend, but it included some heavyweight ingredients. This is my version (cals by my fitness pal)

Skinless and boneless salmon fillet 140g 255 cals
Hellmans lighter than light Mayo 30g 20 cals
Philadelphia light salmon and dill cheese 30g 44 cals
Capers drained and rinsed 10g 3 cals
baby pickled gherkins 20g drained & diced 12 cals

Drizzle of fresh lemon juice and seasoning to taste. I usually add some herbs, depending on what I've got.

Wrap the salmon in foil and bake until cooked (about 20 mins)
Cool and flake into a bowl.
Dice the gherkins and add all other ingredients. Mix well and chill till required.

Makes a nice light lunch filler.
I'm being greedy and scoffing 2 portions tonight with salads out of the garden!!

Yum! Thanks
