Anna's Family Kitchen was inspired by my love of food and desire to feed my family healthy, home cooked wholesome meals that are beautifully presented and appealing but don’t require hours of prep in the kitchen.
Roasted Salmon with Fennel, Mango & Wild Rice Salad
This is health on a plate! A really vibrant fresh summer dish. The salmon is packed with Omega 3, wild rice is higher in protein than normal rice and is a great source of fibre. The whole dish is dressed simply with a lime juice, olive oil and fresh chilli dressing. The sharpness of the lime cuts through the sweetness of the mango and works so well with the aniseed flavour of fresh fennel. Wild rice takes a while to cook so if you’re short on time use a ready cooked rice or lentil pouch. The rest of the dish is put together in 10 minutes.
