Seedy crusted salmon/tofu

Dairy & Gluten free,  vegan   

Once you’ve gathered all the ingredients together this is such a quick recipe to put together, potatoes roasting first, then your protein goes in to cook, making the sauce takes 2 minutes once your prepped and then greens just need a few minutes at the end!!  You can use any seasonal greens you like and add rice or quinoa instead of potatoes! 

Turn up the heat a little if you like it spicy and add some more chilli to the sauce. This is a perfect hit of omega 3 with the seeds and fish, protein and carbs! I hope you enjoy as much as i do, please leave your feedback I love hearing from you!
