Glazed Loch Fyne salmon with green bean and bulghar wheat salad

Friday, 13 July 2012

This is the second recipe on Where Are My Knees? featuring the lovely Loch Fyne salmon. The salmon had a great flavour and texture and tasted just as good after freezing.The salmon fillet I was sent stretched so far and I managed to make loads of meals from it including fish pie (recipe here), risotto, stir fry and loads more.


  • 140g bulghar wheat (I used cous cous because you can't get bulghar wheat in the valleys)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 skinless salmon fillets
  • 6 spring onions , sliced
  • juice and zest ½ lemon
  • 1 tbsp clear honey
  • juice 1 orange , plus 1 tsp zest
  • 200g trimmed fine green bean


  1. Cook the bulghar wheat following pack instructions. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the salmon fillets and cook for 3 mins on each side. Stir in the spring onions and cook for 1 min. Add lemon juice, honey, orange juice and zest to the pan and bubble for 1 min more to make a sauce.
  2. Meanwhile, boil the green beans for 4 mins or until tender. Drain. Stir the bulghar wheat with a fork, mixing in the green beans, lemon zest and a little of the sauce. Serve the salmon on a bed of bulghar and beans, with the rest of the sauce spooned over.

    This was such a tasty recipe, I really enjoyed it and I already had a lot of the ingredients so it was pretty cheap to make. Do let us know if you make it and what you think.
