Ingredients

2 skinless salmon fillets, approximately 200g each

2 bunches of trimmed asparagus

135g cracked wheat

¼ cup fresh mint leaves

2tbs goji berries

1tbs chopped fresh chives

2tsp finely grated lemon zest

1tbs lemon juice

  2. Preheat a grill on high. Spray asparagus and salmon with olive oil and grill salmon for 2-3 minutes on each side or until cooked. Grill the asparagus for 1-2 minutes until just tender. Set aside to cool. Flake salmon into large pieces and cut the asparagus into 5cm pieces.
  3. Add lemon juice and zest, olive oil, rocket, mint, chives, goji berries and asparagus to the cracked wheat. Toss gently to combine and season to taste. Divide amongst four serving plates and top with salmon. Serve immediately.
