Crusted Salmon & Green Beans with Lemon Yoghurt Dressing

October 14th, 2014 | no comments


I missed the markets this week so I’m getting low on food in the house.


Last night I looked in the fridge and found some green beans, lettuce & sweet potato, plus a piece of salmon I had bought the day before.  I was originally planning on making a warm potato & bean salad to have with the salmon, but I was feeling lazy so I decided to just throw it all together on a plate…and it worked wonderfully!!!


This meal was so simple & easy, plus SUPER tasty & nutritious.  A serious party in the mouth…that tangy dressing just topped it off!!  Mmmmmmm 🙂

I crusted the salmon with my friends Dukkah (Denver Dukkah), but you could easily either make your own or buy some ready made from the shops.  Click here for a simple dukkah recipe I posted previously.

This recipe just makes 1 serve so make more depending on how many bellies you are feeding!


Dinner Ingredients:

  • 1 salmon fillet – skin on
  • 2 tbsp dukkah
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • handful of fresh beans
  • 1/3 sweet potato, chopped
  • 4 cos lettuce leaves
  • 1x garlic clove crushed
  • salt & pepper


Dressing Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup natural yoghurt
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 4 fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp honey (to taste)



  1. Chop the sweet potato and place into a pot with a small amount of boiling water to steam/cook the potato (prick with a fork to see if cooked – should be soft but not falling apart!).  Once cooked, drain and set aside.
  2. While potato is cooking, prepare lettuce leaves onto your plate
  3. Generously coat dukkah over your piece of salmon
  4. Heat a pan on the stove top, put 1 tbsp of coconut oil in, garlic, and then place the salmon in to cook, skin down
  5. Meanwhile, wash the beans, and then throw them into the pan with the salmon.  Add salt & pepper over the fish & beans to flavour
  6. Prepare the dressing while everything is cooking – throw it all into a food processor and wizz up until you reach the desired consistency.  Alternatively you could put all of the ingredients into a glass jar and give it a good ol shake!!!  (I used to always make my dressings like this pre-thermomix days!).


Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!!  Would love to know any additions/improvements you come up with…comment below!
