Salmon and courgetti with watercress and dill pesto

This colourful salmon recipe is sure to brighten up dark winter nights. Using pre-prepared courgetti makes this dish super speedy to prepare, while a homemade watercress and dill pesto adds heaps of flavour. 

To make the pesto put the pine nuts, Parmesan, garlic, 2 tbsp of the oil, the watercress leaves, most of the dill, vinegar, lemon zest and juice in a food processor and whizz to a paste. If the pesto is a bit thick, add a little water until you have the desired consistency. Season to taste.

Using kitchen paper, pat dry the salmon skin and season the fish. Heat a non-stick pan large enough for the 2 fillets of fish and add the remaining oil. Add the fish, skin-side down and cook for 3-4 minutes, until the skin is golden. Turn over and cook for 2 mins more, until just cooked through. Set aside to rest while you cook the courgetti pasta.

Add the courgetti to the pan with the pesto and cook on a high heat for 1-2 mins, stirring all the time, until hot through (be careful not to overcook or it will go soggy.) Tip into bowls and top with a salmon fillet and dill fronds to garnish. Serve with the lemon wedges, and some roasted cherry tomatoes, if you like.
