This modern British dish is great feel-good food, perfect for that healthy, post-gym refuel or for a midweek meal that makes you feel like you’re really looking after yourself. The honey and mustard give a lovely sweet-savoury finish to the salmon. Break open the poached eggs just before serving and dip in. See method

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 5, 190°C, fan 170°C. Mix the honey and mustard with some salt and pepper. Line a baking tray with nonstick baking paper. Place the salmon skin-side down on the tray, spoon over the honey and mustard mix, then bake for 12 mins.

  2. Meanwhile, blanch the beans in boiling water for 1-2 mins until just tender. Drain and season. Cook the wholegrain rice with quinoa to pack instructions.

  3. Bring a large pan of lightly salted water to the boil. Add a splash of vinegar, swirl the water with a spoon, then carefully crack the eggs into the water. Poach for 3 mins, then remove with a slotted spoon. Serve with the salmon, beans and grains, plus lemon wedges to squeeze over, and a scattering of sliced chillies and spring onions, if you like.

Chef's tip:
A wedge of lemon helps balance the richness of the salmon and is a great pairing with honey and mustard.

Drink pairing:
Try with Tesco Finest Pinot Grigio Blush – the fruitiness of this delicate rosé will lift the sweetness of the honey.
